Houston Press' Description
This dinner-only spot in Montrose offers "Mexico City cooking" just like abuelita made — if your grandmother had a modern streak a mile wide (which matches the modern decor). Naturally, that doesn't mean you'll find Tex-Mex at Cuchara. It does, however, mean dishes such as avocado mousse in lieu of guacamole, and surprising vegetarian options like nopales (cactus paddles) served with panela cheese. Appetizers such as charilitos — deep-fried minnows — and chicharrones are your best bets, especially when washed down with one of Cuchara's unique cocktails. Brunch is served on Sundays only, with excellent coffee to boot.

Awesome drinks try the Charlie's devil!! Food is amazing!! Bar staff is friendly
Delicious cocktails, innovative appetizers, and surprising, complex food that is plenty "shocking" without being overwhelming. Presentation is just adorable...sad we couldn't keep the straw donkey!
Mole verde . WOW..
I'm stoked about their happy hour menu and vegetarian additions to the menu :D
