  1. I had the tostada last night, the meat was very dark, it almost looked burnt, and I feared it would be awfully dry, but it turned out to be soft, moist and quite tasty. I had them leave the pico off and opted for a few containers of their green salsa which made for a great combo. I think it’s a little pricey, but I will probably get another one before it goes away.
