As we were gathering our things after touching down at McCarren airport,
our main concern was of course food.
I suggested Mexican (per usual) while my friend had been thinking Chinese.
Well you can imagine our surprise when the concierge mentioned
a Mexican-Chinese fusion restaurant within our very hotel.
This is not your standard Mexican. So be prepared to shell out a lot of money for
each very small taco. However, it is somewhat worth it.
My friends ordered Green Tea Sour cocktails (with an edible marigold) while
I tried a new beer: Moutai - it was light and exactly what I needed with my food.
The tacos above, the Barbacoas on the left and Carnitas on the right.
The Carnitas was quite delicious but I am not quite used to the consistency
of pork belly, so it was a bit of shock to bite into something so... jelly-like.
My friend ordered one soup in particular however she was given another that was
surprise double the price and most likely half as tasty. She was not a fan.
We ordered the Twenty-vegetable fried rice because apparently it was on some
well-known foodie list and we weren't disappointed at all.
Like all of our food, it was light, incredibly fresh and made with simple ingredients.
