Alma Cocina Restaurant Review

: Alma Cocina’s menu is divided into sections that make it easy to decide how to enjoy the Mexican cuisine, and anything from an after-work drink and snack to a full meal is doable. Yes, you can pivot back to your chips and salsa if you like, but why not be adventurous given this kind of bounty? Sample huitlacoche (corn truffle) filling an empanada, along with charred tomato and queso Oaxaca. Assorted ceviches, soups and salads, and huaraches (soft corn masa tortillas) all have their own presence among the offerings. Of the latter, we enjoyed a version piled with chicken mole Oaxaca, adorned with pickled onions and sesame seeds. Side dishes can be inspired by street vendors' trays, such as elote (corn) grilled on the cob with aïoli, ancho chili powder, quesos cotija and fresco, lime, cilantro and epazote. Desserts are inspired by classic Mexican sweets, from a tres leches cake with coconut and passion fruit to churros with three sauces. The wine list offers many choices from Spain, and Alma Cocina is a veritable temple to fine tequilas.
