Pozole @ Pacifico

I know Pacifico is not a great place (to eat) and is pretty much despised here, but I have to report that after a couple of years (and some arm twisting) I went back Friday night. Much to my surprise, they have Pozole on the menu again! Having grown up eating this delicious stew, I'm always thrilled to find it on any menu. They used to have it and replaced it with a worse than mediocre black bean soup. I complained to the owners, but to no avail. So of course I immediately ordered it and was thrilled with the results. Despite the fact they don't serve it traditionally (with diced onion, lime, oregano and crushed chile peppers), it was delicious. The broth was rich and the pork was succulent. The pozole was prepared correctly (not the canned goya stuff). The sides were avocado, lime and strips of multi-colored corn chips, which were nice, but not traditional. Needless to say I will be back for more, and a margarita or two, but nothing else.
