New to the scene just recently is Mexcal. It boasts some great food and sweet people watching. I love how the natural light of the outside gives it a fresh feel, the decor is fun to look at as well. The staff were very polite and on point.  I have been wanting to try this place so let’s get into it.

For starters whenever I eat with friends it gives me an excuse to order a couple things to try without getting full. It may appear that I am kind but I just really want to try all the things. I think this helps me get an idea of what I am in store for throughout the meal.

Gauc Chorizo

I liked this a lot and it’s something I haven’t tried before. The mild heat and saltiness really brought out the light pico flavor and were a nice contrast to that green creamy bed of guac. I fricken love guac, you give me guac and I’ll jump in your no windowed van no questions asked.

Ceviche de Camarón y Mango

Lots of spanish there let google translate for you – Shrimp and mango ceviche – Ceviche is typically a raw fish but in this case it’s a mexican take which offers shrimp, tomatoes, onion and mango. The protein is cured in a citrus bath of lemon lime or in some cases bitter melon juice. This I believe is lime. It gave me picco vibes with a nice tart bite. Its light and filling loved the plating as well. If you’re a barbarian like me I took my chips and went to town on it. The portions were kind so I also sprinkled some into my main event.

Chicken Enchiladas Bowl

This was great and the presentation was fun. It had all sorts of goods in it.  Lettuce, rice, shredded chicken, kidney beans, queso fresco, and I am guessing crema. I loved the whole thing. It was refreshing and did not weigh me down after words.  The only tragedy here is they do offer hot sauces and I forgot to ask for some. One of my buddies got some and within me a cold jealousy grew.

Overall I love this new place in La Crosse.  It’s got the classics and does it in a way that doesnt make me need to sleep for the rest of the day. I will be back again and might have to get a guac flight because I have a problem.
