Friend and I got the 3 course Cinco de Mayo special at Masa in the south end last nite which they're running all month. Choice of 3 apps, 3 entrees and 2 desserts for $30.05. Place was bustling at 7:30 on a Tues. but the middle tables were empty which is where we sat. Bar area was very loud. Friend got a margarita and I tried a citrus mojito. Didn't taste much citrus tho. Bread basket comes with spreads of a maple flavored thing, spicy bean dip and one other. She had soup and I had a very nice caesar. I got the pork for an entree and it was a much larger serving than her monkfish. More like a braised dish, not much need for a knife. Very tasty but the chipotle mashed potatoes weren't so noticeable, both in size and taste. My bite of monkfish was fine. We both got banana bread pudding for dessert but it was just okay. Very sturdy consistency, just nothing special. Neither was the service, our waitress kind of forgot about us but it wasn't horrible. So not the best meal ever but a good price for sure and there are many things on the regular menu I'd like to try.
As i walked by Pops, I noticed it was closed. The note in the window said they're fixing the exhaust and will be open again on Thurs. (I think). So yay, that hopefully won't be a problem when I finally visit that restaurant.
