Up first this weekend was Sugarfire - I went with a friend on Saturday. This is an old favorite, and did not disappoint. I got the turkey plate with the greenbeens & squash, and the roasted cauliflower. All were amazing - especially the cheesy roasted cauliflower. I basically use BBQ as a delivery system for excellent BBQ sauces, and Sugarfire has the best.
Shawn and I later went to San Jose in Webster, which is in the old Two Nice Guys. I gut the quesadilla al pastor, Shawn got the pollo Guadalajara, and we started off with the guacamole dip.
The guacamole was disappointing - it was basically mashed up avocados and a little onion. The avocados were old - they had obviously gone too ripe, with gray and fibrous areas. I won't do it again. The salsa was spicy with a hit pepper taste and a smooth, saucey texture that was nice.
The pork al pastor was a highlight, with big chunks of pork and pineapple. Next time I'll get the tacos - the quesadilla cheese only distracted from the great meat. Shawn loved his chicken, smothered in chorizo & cheese.
The accompanying beans and rice were your standard generic fare. Our service was friendly and fun. We'll be back for tacos al pastor.
