Drinks: cilantro fresca (pictured), margarita de la casa, pulque clásico (older than tequila and stronger than beer, pulque is a fermented alcohol made from the agave plant--it also has a slight old, sweaty shoe aftertaste... yum?)
Food: guacamole clásico, sikil pak (Mayan pumpkin seed dip), taco pescado zarandeado & taco carnita (pictured), borrachos ("drunk" beans with pulque)
This Valentine's Day, I celebrated love with three single friends at Pulqueria. We met after work. From an inconspicuous street in Chinatown, we ventured down an unmarked stairwell and through a blue door. We exchanged gifts and stories, ate well, drank lots, and danced while seated in our cozy booth. The four and a half hours passed quickly. Dare I say it was almost perfect? Hope yours was, too.
