▼Grilled Australian lamb tacos with salsa, avocado and chimichurri

Grilled Australian lamb shoulder is cut thickly like a steak. This is a dish to be savored slowly, chewing the juiciness of the lamb and the sweetness of the high-quality fat as long as possible in your mouth.

To go with the meat as a salsa is el caliente’s special “Avocado Chimichurri,” a magic sauce that makes the meat so delicious you can’t stop eating it.
Chimichurri” is a sauce that originated in Argentina, and is found on the tables of restaurants in Central and South America, and is used in Argentina’s national dish, choripan, which is chorizo sandwiched between bread. It has now become a standard not only in Latin America but also in the United States.

The green color is made up of fresh herbs. The base is made by mixing chopped Italian parsley, coriander, mint, and garlic with lime, olive oil, and wine vinegar, to which spices are added for flavor. The countless variations that exist in different countries, regions, and families are another way to enjoy this dish.

At el caliente, we created our original “Salsa Avocado Chimichurri” with red onions, apple cider vinegar, pink pepper, and the addition of creamy avocado. The addition of avocado made the sauce milder, chunkier, and easier to toss with meat and tortillas.

This, anyway, goes great with meat. The chimichurri adds olive oil to the less fatty meat, giving it a mellow flavor. The garlic also stimulates the appetite. Even when you feel like you are almost full, the bitterness of the parsley and the refreshing acidity of the vinegar will refresh your mouth, and you fall into an “endless loop” where you feel like you can eat as much as you want. Chimichurri is truly a “magic sauce that allows you to eat as much meat as you want.


▼Wagyu Carne Asada Tacos  with Salsa Chipotle Cherry

The ichibo is slowly marinated in a marinade of lime, orange, garlic, oregano, chili powder, cumin, coriander, and jalapeno, and grilled to a crisp on the surface and moist on the inside. The freshness of the fruit and spices can be felt directly with the beef.

The sauce is made with chipotle cherries, a red salsa that has become popular in recent years.
Dried and smoked jalapeño “chipotle”, seasonal American cherries, ketchup, apple cider vinegar, onions, and butter are combined and slowly simmered to create a rich, sweet, and punchy salsa with an eye-catching bright red color.
The sweet and sour taste of American cherries adds a fruity accent to the chipotle that creates a moderately smoky spiciness, and the apple cider vinegar gives the sauce a refreshing flavor that is full of flavor. The sauce instantly elevates any meat dish and makes you want to pour it over everything.

For an easy-to-eat medium-rare ichibo, cut it into conchassee (small dice) and serve it with fresh jalapeños, microleaf topping, and chipotle cherry salsa. No matter where you eat it, you can enjoy the balance of meat, toppings, and salsa. You’ll also enjoy both crispy surface and lean taste changes of the Ichibo meat.

The lamb tacos and the Wagyu beef tacos can be ordered with a minimum order of 2 pieces each, so be sure to share them with your friends or family and make sure to try both tacos, which are our chef’s best specials.

From Mexico! The eye-catching “Watermelon Frozen Coronarita” with its unique appearance is sure to attract the attention of everyone around you.
It is a long cocktail made with a frozen margarita and a small Corona beer coronita stuck upside down.
