“It’s not fusion. You get Mexican and Chinese food.”

Mexican is well prepared, and I agree with previous comments that the barbacoa tacos were better than the cochinita pibil. But the cochinita tacos come with a nice piece of fried pork skin to give them a crunch.

The fundito was served in a warm skillet and the chorizo added nice flavor. You also get four very flavorful warm tortillas. This dish really needs more tortillas. But when you ask for more, they charge you another $4 and bring out six, which is too many. They should serve it with six. Ah well…

The dan dan mian consisted of soba noodles, and had the cherished Sichuan peppercorns that make this dish distinctive.

Jose Andres got it right again. These two cuisines are very complementary.
