I’ve had two meals here and everything has been great. The pricier menu and plating distinguishes it from the bulk of Mexican restaurants along 24th or in La Lengua, and for a comparably priced menu, the options are much more interesting to me than those at nearby Hillside Supperclub. There isn’t a kids menu, but if you ask, they’ll make your kid a quesadilla with a side of rice and (really good) beans.
Tortillas (and gorditas) are made to order from La Palma’s regular or blue corn masa, and chips and tostadas are also from La Palma.
La Palma’s colored tortillas chips for the guacamole.
For our salty, stretchy pleasure, queso fundido with chorizo.
Bone marrow given the elote treatment, with a generous amount of corn.
Fantastic beef Milanesa, just as tender but taller than I’ve had before. crisp and not oily crust.
Generous amount of meat and hominy in the posole.
Chicken guidado tacos. A safe choice for our kid, but will do the gorditas next time, which are the same price/filling.
Bistec a la tamiquena FTW: skirt steak, guacamole, grilled salty (panela?) cheese, chicken enchiladas, grilled chili, corn and grilled onions, fresh masa quesadilla.
