Great meal at Blind Burro

Sure, we all know I'm not the most sophisticated here. In fact, Im pretty easily pleased. But our dinner at Blind Burro was terrific tonight.

Happy hour oysters, buck a piece.
Caesar Salad, prepped tableside by the Chef. Ingredients matched our experience at Caesar's in TJ- very, very good.

Interesting duck two-ways entree- a pan-seared breast with a mole and shredded on a sope with some arugula, radishes, etc.

The churros were excellent, and Mr12 gave top marks to the house-made horchata.

Good margaritas, too.

I'll go again in a heartbeat.

    1. I ate there earlier this week...had shrimp achiote tacos that were quite good. Margaritas not bad either.

      1. Love mole, so will add Blind Burro to my list of places to try during my "getaway" at the Grant.

        1. For anyone interested, they have a lobster fiesta for 45/person.

           
          1. Went to the Blind Burro last night, and it was fantastic. We had the battered dorado tacos, the kalbi ribs, and the corn side dish (kind of an off-the-cob elote), as well as a sangria and horchata to drink. All excellent, the only sort-of-miss was the somewhat bland potato salad which came with the kalbi. Overall, I highly recommend the place.

              Trying it this week...what is the parking situation like?

              1. re: foodiechick

                Parkit on Market is your best (and cheapest) bet, unless you luck out and get something ont he street at a meter.

                I'd also check the game schedule. I understand they play something called "bass ball".

                  What is this bass ball you speak of? ;D

                  Thanks for the parking tip.

                  There is also a parking lot at 2nd Avenue and J Street. The kiosks are located on the south corners.
