The stage – historic Old Oakland location, minimalist décor with exposed brick and oversized art, a semi-open kitchen, dozens of tea light candles and wooden tables so beautiful you would never consider covering them with tablecloths.
Everybody raves about the tacos and they are delicious, but I love the tostaditas.
Tostaditas de Tinga Poblana - three tiny tostadas spread with black beans, topped with chipotle chicken, cabbage, fresh avocado and crema. If you like mole you'll love the Rocky range chicken topped with a tamarind mole over Mexican rice. Then there's the tamales, and the carnitas and the empanadas...
Far too many outstanding dishes to mention here, plus I need to elaborate on the cocktails now.
