Remember the Gorgon from Otto's Tacos that we previously raved about? We stopped by our neighborhood Otto's Tacos tonight for dinner (I love that we can say that now that there's one in Hell's Kitchen), and the first thing I noticed was this new menu sign.
The Gorgon was no longer a secret, off menu item? And you could get it in chicken, carnitas, mushroom, or shrimp, and not just carne asada? You could get the Gorgon at any time of day and not just during off hours? The crew confirmed it and we were thrilled. Best news of the day.
There was no question in our minds that we were both going to get a Gorgon. A decided on the mushroom (above), and I got the chicken (below). (We've mentioned them in their taco versions before.) We wanted to try something other than the carne asada we had before to see if the other toppings were as good in the Gorgon. They are.
It had been a while since we last got the Gorgon and we had forgotten just how good it was. (We shouldn't have since it was on both of our favorites lists last year, but we did.) That first bite into the puffy masa with mushrooms/chicken, crema, guacamole, onions, cilantro... It was just so good. Now that we can get the Gorgon any time we want and no longer have to strategically plan for them in the middle of the afternoon, we have a feeling there's going to be a lot of them in our future. So happy about this menu change!
