Frontiers: Petty Cash Taqueria

I've been following chef Walter Manzke's career for a while now, from Bastide to Church & State to his latest venture (for the moment, until he opens up yet another new restaurant, Republique, later this month), Petty Cash Taqueria - an upscale ode to the Tijuana taco joints of his youth.

This isn't your average Mexican restaurant by any means. Some of the specialties I enjoyed were pig's ear nachos, charcoal-grilled octopus tacos with chile de arbol, peanuts, jack cheese and avocado, and the the Y’allAintEvenKnowIt spicy margarita with lemon, curacao, aƱejo tequila and habanero tincture.

Buen provecho!
