On Court Street – Lalo used to be Huit BBQ which I went to once. I liked my Bi Bim Bap but thought it was a little pricey. Inside it’s a tiny little place – but a cute design. A coworker and I went for lunch on a rather cold day – unfortunately the door doesn’t like to shut unless people REALLY shut it – so we were freezing our entire lunch. The staff tried to keep on it but it was a bit futile.
I went for tacos and got two tacos – a Drunken Brisket and a Carnitas. They were really small – like maybe 4″ across. They were also both really dry. I was really disappointed in the tacos.
I also ordered the chili when I ordered my meal. I’ll tell you the good first – it was INCREDIBLE. I mean seriously – this is one of the best soups I have ever had in my life.
But…I would be shocked if this is not a soup that has been cooking and simmering for some hours. I ordered this thinking it would come before my tacos. It actually came about 15 minutes AFTER my tacos. The server apologized and said it took a while to make. We were both done with our lunch when it came.
Again – it was worth the wait and by far the best part of the lunch. But waiting 35-45 minutes for a bowl of soup was a little cra.
Why Should You Go? Well – the soup was amazing. The service left something to be desired.
