I know, I’ve been a little MIA lately. Do you miss me?
Last week I was invited to sample the new and improved menu at Rosa Mexicano. I’d been to Rosa Mexicano a few times before – they have awesome guacamole that they make tableside! I could eat a whole bowl of that stuff. Their entrees were quite hearty – while delicious, you definitely were committing to the entree you chose. I was happy to see that their new menu focuses more on tapas-style small plates – my favorite way to eat!
This particular event took place at Rosa Mexicano‘s Union Square location:
I was particularly fond of the hamachi ceviche, with diced yellowtail, bacon, serrano chile, arugula and truffle oil served in mini taco shells:
Quite a spread was laid out for us – and more and more delectable delights were coming from the kitchen!
And of course, diligent blogger I am, I had to review the highlights of the new menu (over frozen pomegranate margaritas):
And Rosa Mexicano knew how to keep a gal happy – I loved the new dishes but I will always be a guac girl. A huge bowl of freshly made guac waited for me, along with warm tortillas and a smorgasbord of chips!
These mini tacos were accompanied by shots (I just stuck with the tacos!) and featured spiced organic chicken, plantains, sweet peppers, chile de arbol, salsa and cream:
The plantains were an unexpected but welcome addition.
The ceviches were refreshing and perfect for the upcoming summer months.
Herbed fries complemented these small bites well, and provided a nice nibble between taco, ceviche and beverage breaks!
I really enjoyed the lighter tastes of this new menu, which encourages sharing and sampling of many different dishes – totally my style! If you ever find yourself near a Rosa Mexicano, I would recommend popping in and checking out their spankin’ new offerings.
Has this post gotten you in the mood for Mexican? Stay tuned, I will be giving away bean dip, a margarita maker and margarita glasses in an upcoming post!
What’s your favorite Mexican dish? Mine is guacamole!
