Pulqueria Restaurant Review

: On a Chinatown street with a back-alley feel is this Mexican restaurant serving up authentic cuisine and killer margaritas. The d├ęcor is colorful with swaths of exposed brick and a baroque tiled floor. There are a dizzying number of tequila and mezcal selections, so let the bartenders walk you through the different purveyors and flavors. Drinks are well balanced and will whet your appetite for the guacamole and pumpkin seed dip. Grilled corn is served off the cob in a glass jar with mayo and queso fresco, chili and lime. While the carnitas and cactus tacos are popular, we like the braised chile-rubbed lamb shoulder.
