Last December, Bossyboots and I visited Rick Bayless' Topolobampo. YUM! Because I'm a Rick Bayless fan, his more casual restaurant Xoco was also on my "to visit" restaurant list and I made that happen just recently. Xoco is a breakfast and lunch joint modelled after mexican street food. Tortas make up a major part of their menu, and their buzzy items are their in-house chocolate and churros. See some lunchy proof:
I started with the cubana torta - Smoked Maple Creek pork loin and bacon, black beans, avocado, artisan Jack cheese, chipotle mustard. Aaaaaaaand I had to finish with the churros, for more than obvious reasons.
Overall, it was bit a of a heavy lunch for me, but SO delicious. I highly recommend Xoco for a scrumptious lunch (go early, the line goes out the door!!!), but schedule yourself a light dinner - you'll thank me! Highly recommended.
