Where better to roll with my homies than at Casa?
Casa is dark and sexy. Amber, tater, and I sat in the bar area in front of the open kitchen, but the real action is in the pod-like casitas, which can be reserved.
Happy hour is a super delicious steal at Casa. The deals rival and may surpass Chaya's. While prices seem ever-so-slightly higher at Casa, the food is far more filling. You order less, and your tab ends up much lower.
Margarita with agave nectar, fresh lime juice, and Milagro silver tequila ($7).
Totopos con amigos ($4).
It's a fancy name for chips and salsa. Ok, three salsas.
Tacos de carne asada ($7).
How adorable is this corrugated taco holder?! Adobo-marinated steak, onions, peppers, queso añejo, roasted tomato salsa, and guacamole quelled our after-work hunger.
Masas fritas ($4).
Molotes (fried maize pancakes) in French fry form! Fantastic!
Queso flameado ($6).
It actually does flame at your table, but I didn't capture it quickly enough. Tequila-flamed queso asadero with roasted peppers and carne asada (or soy chorizo, if you so choose) and flour tortillas are sure to please everyone. We're talking flaming cheese here, people. Cheese. On. Fire. How could you not like that?
Tacos al pastor ($7).
This slow spit-roasted pork with a tomatillo-avocado sauce also came with two friends on a corrugated taco holder. I give a slight edge to the al pastor over the carne asada.
Roll with your homies to happy hour at Casa. It will offend me if you don't.
