This tiny spot lined with flowery murals is a pleasant surprise in its Montrose strip center. The pricey menu, more Mex than Tex, looked promising, with classics like carne asada and tinga de pollo. But our meal started out rough with the camarones a la mexicana; described as “jumbo shrimp, green chile peppers, onions, garlic, avocado,” it was missing all those ingredients save for medium shrimp, which were too salty. Also not encouraging: overcooked fajitas. Happily, things picked up a bit with our quarter chicken blanketed in mole negro and a bowl of pozole verde. The visit’s high point was its conclusion: made-to-order churros.
