About

Alma Mexicana's tasty treasures abound within the crunchy cover of taco shells and the aurally surreptitious soft shield of tortillas depicted on the sizable menu. Wake up sleeping stomachs with huevos con chorizo, two scrambled eggs bulked up with mexican sausage in a heap of beans, pico de gallo, and tortillas ($8.50), a decidedly pleasant alternative to starting the day by digesting a cymbal monkey. Alma's mealmakers build the chile relleno by roasting fresh poblano peppers, packing them with melted cheese, and painting them in egg batter and homemade green sauce ($12). The cuisine engineers also craft tortas ($7.50)—a Mexican version of the layered culinary classic commonly known as the sandwich—stuffed with a choice of four meats, including steak and marinated pork, and accented with the creamy drawl of guacamole and mayonnaise. An arsenal of other south-of-the-border staples, such as more than a dozen different burritos ($4.50–$7.75), a trio of quesadillas ($3–$4.50), and seven substantially savory combination plates ($10–$12), rounds out the menu.
