Like a disco ball, Mexican cuisine livens up parties and is best enjoyed while sporting bell-bottoms and an afro topped with a sombrero. Enjoy festive fare with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican cuisine at El Puerco Lloron.
El Puerco Lloron is a counter-style service eatery specializing in south-of-the-border flavors, its plentiful portions of authentic Mexican cuisine dished out in a festive setting. Try the taquitos ($6.50), a trio of handmade corn tortillas stuffed with your choice of meat and served with rice and beans. Vegetarians can opt for the rellenos de queso ($8.18), deep-fried, deeply philosophical anaheim peppers oozing with cheese and a passion for Proust, flanked by tortillas, rice, and beans. The same trio of sides carouses with the carne asada ($8.59), a beef steak grilled over an open flame. Classic Mexican beers, such as a Negro Modelo, are available for palate cleansing and pleasing.
El Puerco Lloron's counter-style service allows diners to nosh without the detriments of neglectful waiters and bullies bargaining for brown-bag lunches. The local haunt’s brightly accented turquoise walls, colorful lighting, and outdoor patio evoke spring-break memories that come flooding back in a wave made out of tortilla.
El Puerco Lloron
El Puerco Lloron's staff serves a full menu of classic Mexican food either inside or, on nicer days, on its sunlight-rich outdoor patio. Pork, chicken, and beef taquitos can be enjoyed amid a beach-like atmosphere full of cool blue and salmon tones, colorful hanging lights with intricate flower patterns, and mural art that conjures pastoral serenity. The well-worn folding tables further crystallize the vibe, which is more laid back than an SAT-taker who's already a billionaire.
This is not your let's-slap-a-ton-of-cheese-and-guac all over the thing, plus refried beans. No. This is light, healthy, tasty Mexican food!P.S., Yelp, 4/18/11
