Ate at Cactus again the other day...

...which reinforced my previous experience: Go for the tapas and margaritas, don't bother with the entrees or desserts.

The appetizer I ordered from the tapas menu was really good--sauteed scallops with serrano ham in a spicy chili/tomato(?) sauce, served with bread for dipping. The entree was...okay. It was their version of pork adobo: a marinated pork chop (a bit overcooked and tough) with salsa fresca, perched atop a big-ass cube of tortilla somethingorother (read: polenta on steroids) and surrounded by a pool of chili sauce.

For dessert, I had flan for the first time in prolly twenty years. It was good, but *very* sweet. (Custard with caramel sauce? Hel-lo! Can we have a little contrast here, please? Maybe a little fruit? Or something tart?)

Good margaritas, though...
