El Vez Restaurant Review

: El Vez is a fantasia Mexicana with wild d├ęcor, including a gold-plated low-rider. The music blares, the bar scene draws the young and good-looking, the food is tasty and the margaritas are potent. Offerings include cactus and crab salsa, tuna tostadas with chipotle mayo, and a fresh selection of ceviches. Pork confit tacos spiked with salsa verde are a must. If you can't choose, the taco tasting platter makes life easy. Try sopapillas for dessert or even better, the big Mexican banana split with chipotle-soaked cherries, canella cream and spiced hazelnuts. It's more Cadillac Bar than Margaritaville, but you'll like it. The outside dining scene is also fun in warm weather.
