Description

OC Weekly's Description

SOL Cocina's chipotle-piloncillo goat cheese speaks to what this Mexican restaurant is about. Consisting of a dense scoop of the Philly-like cheese, it's surrounded by a spicy, dark-caramel syrup made of melted piloncillo, the traditional raw brown sugar of Mexico largely unknown to Americans. The sauce culled from it will seduce you-simultaneously hot,
sweet, complex, and worldly, like Salma Hayek as Frida Kahlo. The carnitas
that filled the tacos came from Kurabuta pig and the beef, from antibiotic and hormone-free Meyer Angus cattle. Only in Newport Beach would the taco meat contain fewer additives than the residents.

    Order the Chipotle-Piloncillo Goat Cheese! The dish blends the salty, the rich, the sugary, the sticky and the stickier. Try it!

    The chipotle-piloncillo goat cheese is delicious! Try the carnitas made from Kurabuta pig. Also Featured at the first ever LA Weekly Tacolandia! Worth the trip for Angelenos!
