Absolutely love this place. Must get the Guacamole with Jalapeno and Pistachios along with Masa Crisps, Rhubarb, avocado salad with a chorizo chipotle sauce. For more about these and other dishes, please visit http://bit.ly/XW3M8K

I dined at Empellón Cocina on Monday this week and was lucky enough to meet Chef Alex Stupak! What an amazing story he has... he inspired me to write a full review on his restaurant with a special sneak peek into his own life... this guy wakes up scared every day! Check my post out at: http://tinyurl.com/ckgo4bz 5 Stars... an exquisite outcome of a master following his dreams.

I had dinner at Empellon last night and the food was extraordinary. We shared plates among a table of four, and we all were very pleased with the food. Alex Stupak's take on Mexican food is interesting. For example, the guacamole with almonds was different and very tasty. The shrimp was delicious. Overall, I would recommend Empellon to all my friends.
