Privy 5 Overview

Share |

Toloache is nothing to look at from the street, but Broadway has a way of life imitating art, or art imitating life, so nothing is ever as it seems to appear. This is a dedicated Mexican tavern decorated in silver lanterns and hand painted tile. Co-owner chef Julian Medina goes to town on the guacamoles which are mashed to order at the bar, as for the rest, he skips and hops all over Mexico. Oaxacan dried grasshoppers are great bar food according to the barman but more traditional fare includes the roast sucking pig from the brick oven and a Veracruz-style paella. The garlic shrimp are delicious and Baja-style hamachi tacos, spicy jícama slaw, accompanied by a frozen chocolate tamarind raspado (Margarita) are all strong dishes at Toloache.
