Dinner with friends back on Wednesday, April 12, 2017. Modern Mexican cuisine is finally making a footprint in the LA dining scene. Chef Diego Hernandez has a critically acclaimed restaurant south of the border in Ensenada, Baja California, before opening up a restaurant in San Diego. Now, he brings his culinary expertise to LA, and what we got to share was an array of refined, beautifully plated dishes.
The Sorrel Tamal was one of my favorites as the preparation and presentation was nothing one would expect when you order tamal or a tamale. Our dinner was highlighted by a wonderful Suckling Pig. Pass me some more of those housemade tortillas!
Dinner ended with a nice Beet Biscocho, soft, smooth, creamy and not too sweet.
