Don’t Miss the Churros at Mayahuel

Featured Image

Crispy churros oozing caramel and dusted with cinnamon-sugar, all drizzled with Nutella and crowned with a dollop of velvety vanilla ice cream. A dessert like this might make you want to skip the main course at Mayahuel, a new Mexican eatery in DC, but don't. You'll miss out on the equally impressive savory dishes that fill the main menu.

Start by sharing a few snacks ("botanas") with your table, like the classic guacamole flecked with cotija cheese crumbles and the nachos loaded with braised lamb, corn, pico de gallo, poblano-queso, and crema. After a nosh or two, enjoy the tacos stuffed with slowly braised Creekstone brisket, tomatillo-avocado salsa, pico de gallo, cilantro, and lime wedges. Or bite into the Mexi-Burguesa, an Angus patty smothered with a three-queso blend, grilled onions, salsa, peppers, and chipotle aioli.
