The Guacamole is one of their featuring shared dishes and will be featured in my Yaletown Cocktail Crawl.
The Grilled Cactus is served in the form of salsa and with flour tortilla and tortilla chips. The warm and luscious halloumi cheese gives is quite lovely in this dish.
As the main course, either the Grilled Cauliflower or the Flank Steak came in such rustic presentation but with the refined details and bold flavours.
Although not on their Taste of Yaletown menu, the Oxtail Fideo Pasta with Pine Nut Picada and Aioli ($18) was a fantastic dish.
For desserts, besides the Flourless Chocolate Cake, we were also offered to taste the Buñuelo, with fried flour tortillas, sugar cane syrup, grilled mango, gooseberries and vanilla ice cream, and the Quequito, prepared with chickpea sponge cake, vanilla ice cream, candied pistachios.
