I order the same thing every time I stop by Xoco - the Chicken Tinga. It's so good I don't want to try anything else. I love the bread, the chicken, the combination of flavors.. it's all delicious. Cooking it in the wood burning oven makes it that much better. On my last trip I added chips and guac to the order and thought the guac was good, but nothing to rave about. I am a big fan of their change to all day take-out. It makes me a more frequent visitor. The only thing I don't love is spending $12+ on a sandwich, but when the ingredients are such high caliber I do understand. I also love their bean-to-cup chocolate, especially in the winter. Pair it with a churro and it's a great dessert!

Restaurant: Girl & The Goat
I have had the pleasure of dining at Girl & The Goat five times now and it has been an incredible experience every time. The food is always amazing and changes with the seasons. My favorite way to enjoy Girl & The Goat is to head in without reservations, grab a drink and wait for a spot to open up at the bar. If you haven't eaten at the bar yet, I recommend doing so. The bartenders are friendly, knowledgeable and haven't led me wrong yet. Plus they make killer cocktails to accompany the delicious food. This is easily one of my favorite spots in the city.
