Bar Ama

Established in 2012. Fideo and borracho beans with cilantro and pork belly simmering on the stove, the spicy warmth of menudo every Christmas and New Year's, egg salad with a fried egg between a butter toasted bolillo, and puffy tacos stuffed with lengua carnitas and crushed avocado and doused with pequin chile vinegar salsa. These are just some of the dishes that have inspired me - the food that I was nurtured with by the women who raised me. Bar Ama' is my interpretation of their Tex-Mex. - Chef Josef Centeno
