Popped in for drinks, fantastic cocktails! The owner was an absolute gem, also letting us try some great mezcal. Didn’t have a chance to check out their food, but the menu looked tasty, definitely planning on coming back!
When you hear the phrase “elevated street food” you being to think of fussy, over-prepared items that bear little or no resemblance to the simple fare that inspired them. Rojo Gusano, however, has managed to create a fusion of simple with unique that never feels fussy. In fact, anything on the menu would be a welcome addition to a food truck or a beachfront hut in Mexico.
On the Ravenswood Art walk, tortilla chips made fresh, tortillas with freshly cooked tortilla. My choice mushrooms, the other pork belly, both to die for. Salsa thicker than paint and perfectly spiced. Great bar selection.
