Don Pisto’s Food Picks:
Al Pastor Tacos ($9.00) grilled pork rib chop, charred pineapple, avocado salsa had a nice sweet/savory action. Good stuff.
Ceviche ($13) Prawn was the ceviche of the day. Mildly spicy, not very big, but satisfying
Wild Monterey Calamari ($15.00) charcoal grilled, orange, lime, radish salad was super spicy. Hot off the grill, the calamari was tender and had a ton of flavor.
House-made Chorizo Mussels ($16.00) mexican country sausage, white wine, and cilantro was our favorite dish of the evening. Great broth with grinded up chorizo. Could of used some rice or noodles with it!
OK: (Order if you like this dish)
Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
Poc Chuc ($21) grilled pork rib chop, orange chili marinade, spicy cucumber salad used a cheap cut of meat and proved to be mediocre.
