Where We’re Eating: Sancho Pistola’s

sancho pistolasIt would be worth visiting Joe Gunn, Casey Parker and Adan Trinidad’s sequel to Jose Pistola’s purely to read the beer menu. The Pabst Blue Ribbon is described as “Frank Booth’s favorite. F’ Heineken.” The Allagash White is a “way worse dancer than Allagash Black.” It’s a fun list to read, and indicative of the time you can have at Sancho Pistola’s even if you skip the beer list entirely and settle in with a margarita or smoked piña colada. But Sancho’s isn’t just a place to drink; Trinidad is putting out serious food. The tacos that make up half the menu are a good place to start; they’re broken up by land and sea. On land, the spicy pork tacos are on point; on the sea side, you can’t go wrong with tuna — or, expand your taco horizons with the scallop version. Trinidad is at his best with sea creatures, and nowhere more so than the whole fish. Wash it down with a Berber stout, which, according to the beer menu, is a “dark gift from Mexico, like Adan.”
