I went to Zocalo at around 5:30 to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. I saw that they were supposed to have food and drink specials today and that's why I went. When I first stepped in, I thought the place looked pretty chill, with a little edgy decor. The music was a little too loud though. The server was okay; she just led us to the table and got us our menus. I asked her if there were any specials for Cinco de Mayo and she said that there wasn't any, which was strange, considering the posters on their walls read that there would be food and drink specials today. So we just stuck to the main menu.
Ceviche - pretty good! the fish was firm but still had very soft edge to it. There was a lot of lime in the dish but was very good with the combination of avocados and other condiments.
Queso Fundido - it's like a brie cheese dip except much smaller in portions compared to the fried tortilla chips (which were very good, by the way). The dish itself was very good but it was too small to please our hungry appetites. The salsa on the side seemed pretty silly as the amount was too small to be eaten anyways.
Sirloin Skewers - WARNING: if you eat nothing but tender steak or red meat, DO NOT TRY THIS DISH! I don't actually mind lean beef but the sirloin was too tough for me to chew properly. The vegetables, on the other hand, were cooked to perfection and I was very happy with them.
Chicken Taquitos - Very good except the portion was wayy too small! Two big spring roll sizes. The guacamole was quite good and the dish itself was excellent overall.
White Trash Margarita - okay. wasn't too exciting. can't recollect anything special about this drink.
ginger tequila sunrise - AWESOME! the orange flavour was very intense in this drink but you could still feel the tequila's presence. GREAT!
pastel tres leches - great dessert! you can really taste the different milk between the layers. the only issue would be that the cake is a little dense ( i like moist cakes) but it's amazing how moist it is!
Overall, pretty good. It is a pretty good place to check out. However, I don't know if I'll be returning. The ambiance was below my expectations. The only thing that really really impressed me was the dessert.
