Ay Caramba!

You'll discover all manner of delicious meats tucked into the crunchy bolillo rolls of Ay Caramba!'s tortas, including plump chipotle shrimp, tender pulled beef, and pork that's been braised in Negro Modelo for more than 20 hours. The eatery's chefs whip up more than a dozen varieties of these traditional Mexican street sandwiches, dabbing fresh rolls from a local bakery with refried beans, cilantro butter, and adobo chipotle aioli before piling on the meats and veggies. As chefs whip up tortas, guacamole, and Mexican snacks in the kitchen, bartenders keep busy behind the bar. They blend tequila-infused cocktails with fresh juices such as tart limeade and tangy grapefruit juice, and then add in inspired ingredients such as charred serrano pepper and muddle jalapenos.

A lively crowd of carousers can easily pack into the two-story seating area, which features leather banquettes and rustic wooden tabletops. The walls of the colorful, contemporary space are decorated with strings of colorful lights, vivid paintings, and old black-and-white photographs of mariachis strumming guitars and furtively giving each other bunny ears.
