What to eat at Xochitl?
Night out with the girls next weekend. Need some recommendations of dishes to order at Xochitl. Thanks in advance.
The table side guacamole with truffles is awesome. They have a really, REALLY good drink made with tequila and blood orange juice. The best part is, this drink is rimmed with a salt, sugar, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. It is so good.
Ever since they opened, they've had a dish called Chiles en Nogada. As described on their site:
"Poblano pepper stuffed with ground beef, dried fruit and nuts, with a creamy walnut sauce and pomegranate"
It's served at room temperature.
This doesn't sound like something I'd like at all--I'm not into sweet dishes, creamy sauces, or ground beef--but this dish is outstanding albeit rich. Someone in your party should order it and you should try it.
The sopes are great, too. They also have a cocktail I love call Senior Borega. It's tequila, lime juice, sugar, jalepeno and fresh thyme. I never order cocktails but I can't get enough of these, even at $10 a pop.
Thanks for the information. I think this is going to be a great night out. My only concern is that I hate cilantro and I am afraid it is going to be in many of the dishes.
