Barrio Chino

Neighborhood hipsters seem to have taken up permanent residence at Barrio Chino’s rough-hewn wooden bar. The venue’s goal of giving tequila the sipping credibility of Scotch may be undermined by the jicama or lime garnishes and the accompanying glass of sangrita (a tomato-citrus nectar)—but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Fifty tequilas are available ($7–$40 per glass), and tacos from the bar menu help soak up all that booze.

Really solid Mexican spot!! Came for brunch and had a very pleasant experience; the staff was nice, the vibe was cool, the food was delicious. I had:

Chips and Guac - delicious. The complimentary salsas are also very good, ranging from mild to extra hot.

Jalapeno Margarita - SPICY. But delicious. 

Al pastor tacos - these were bomb. The tortillas are soft and yummy, the pork is perfectly roasted with pineapple, and it's topped with white onions and tons of cilantro. Also $8 for 2 which is pretty reasonable,

Will definitely come back to try all the other tacos they have. 4 stars!
