We read about Cacao Mexicatessen restaurant/deli coming to Eagle Rock sometime ago, and we were waiting for their grand opening. So there we went yesterday, Friday, July 31st, 2009.
A very cute store, lots of Mexican grocery basics, and lots of Mexican candy also available.
Their menu includes a big variety of items, I have to say that I did get lost with their menu.
We ended up ordering various items, including a cheese plate that I truly liked, and I will be coming back just for that, and because of it. Our cheese plate was presented to us by the chef, she explained to us what each of the cheeses were and their origin. I could tell that the chef was very proud of her cheese plate. An amazing Oaxaca imported cheese was included within the plate.
They are just starting their business, and clearly there are some issues that need work, but the flavors are there, so it is a good start.
Small restaurant, but plenty of seating indoor and outdoor.
I will try to go back in a few weeks, then I can give a better review.
