Since revamping its menu to “Crossroads” by Aaron Sanchez last year, House of Blues has returned to our good graces after a few not-so-great experiences. I stopped in recently for a quick bite and grabbed a seat at the bar. I was asked if I wanted a drink and ordered a water and bottle of beer.
While looking over the menu, I also spotted these specialty cocktails on a container holding hot sauce. I might have been upsold on one of these had they been mentioned before I ordered a beer. The Spiced Tiki definitely piqued my interest, despite it no longer being served in a souvenir mason jar. Maybe next time.
Here are the recipes if you want to make either at home:
For my meal, I ordered the Bay Shrimp and Avocado Street Tacos. They are described as “Street style corn tortillas, green cabbage, fresh pico de gallo, roasted tomatillo salsa, Cotija cheese and Avocado lime Crème.”
Three tacos come to an order, served with a wedge of lime and pico de gallo on the side. Each taco had around 4 shrimp in it, and had a bit of a spicy kick. They were so filled with ingredients, they proved to be a bit difficult to eat. The large slice of avocado may have been a bit easier to enjoy had it been diced, too.
The pico de gallo had a fresh, bright flavor, but with all the other ingredients stuffed into the small corn tortillas, there really wasn’t anywhere for it to go. I did end up having to eat a majority of the dish with a fork. Overall, I thought the dish was quite enjoyable and would happily order it again.
