Post-class Thursday included sangria & dinner at Barrio.

There are a million candles there. It takes their staff approximately 30 minutes to light them all up. Anyway, back to the food and drinks. Barrio is what I'd consider fancy Mexican food--I'm not entirely sure how authentic it is, but it's still delicious.

The sangria was light & refreshing--probably not the most appropriate choice for a cold, rainy night. Splitting a carafe of this with some girls during a summer afternoon would be more fitting.

J and I ordered 4 appetizers--the server looked at us like we were crazy because apparently, that is a lot of food.

The braised pork taquitos were sooo good--juicy pieces of slowly braised pork with just a hint of heat.

Skirt steak huarache was enough food for a person! J abstained due to his dislike of black beans.

By far the most satisfying dish was the wagyu beef tortitas--the combination of bacon, wagyu beef, guacamole, and pepper aioli was an amazing mix of fatty/spicy/creamy/salty.

The queso fundido was okay--usually I'm a huge fan of melted cheese and mushrooms, but for some reason, I wasn't feeling it that night.
