Chef Jose Andres marries Chinese with Mexican at China Poblano at The Cosmopolitan.
China Poblano. Thankfully, the food is fairly tasty, so the sting is somewhat lessened.
Fresh tortilla chips and housemade chipotle salsa ($4).
Fresh tortillas and guacamole ($15).
Tacos (one per order) (yes, just one -- WTF):
(1) Pescado Frito: fried fish, salsa Mexicana ($5.50).
(2) Viva China: beef tendon, Kumamoto oyster, scallions, Sichuan peppercorn sauce ($5.50).
(3) Pancita al Pastor: slow-cooked pork belly, pineapple ($5.50).
(4) Lengua: beef tongue, salsa pasilla ($4).
(5) Cochinita: Yucatan-style barbecued pork, marinated onions ($4.50).
Lamb Potstickers Stuck on You, vegetables, crispy lace ($11.88).
Rou Jia Mo Street Sandwich, red braised pork. ($8.88)
Shrimp Mojo -- shrimp, sweet black garlic, roasted poblano peppers ($16).
Like Water for Chocolate -- fried quail, dragon fruit, rose petals, chestnut, dragon fruit sauce ($15).
The Unruly Monk -- hand-cut noodles, wild wood ear mushrooms, poached egg, spicy sauce ($16.88).
My favorites were the potstickers, street sandwich, and fried quail. Skip the noodles. I recommend coming with a group, so you can get a bunch of things to share. The food won't totally wow you, but you'll have a good time at China Poblano.
