Hailing from Acapulco, Mexico, El Olvido’s Executive Chef Jorge Pingarron crafts a menu of authentic dishes that span multiple Mexican regions. Chicken wings served with avocado sauce ($7.95) serve as piquant prelude to carne en su jugo ($9.90–$11.90), the house specialty that uses a traditional Jalisco recipe to cook strips of meat in their own juices with beans and bacon. Costillas en salsa verde ($11.90) couple hearty bites of pork baby ribs in green sauce with rice and whole beans, and in the camarones a la diabla ($12.90), shrimp sautés in a spicy chipotle sauce alongside bacon, onion, and poblano. Guests can pair bites with imported beers such as Tecate and Modelo Especial ($3.50) or traditional Mexican flavored water ($2.50), which doubles as ammunition during traditional Mexican water-balloon fights.
