Dawn Warden recounts the visuals and culinary highlights of her visit to Distrito.

The esquites were a crowd favorite. Served in a petite pilsner glass, this was a creamy mix of sweet corn and queso fresco (fresh cheese), with a little kick of chipotle and lime. As decadent as it was with its spicy-sweet, crunchy-creamy contrasts, I was surprised to learn that it is a very traditional street food and quite simple to prepare.

Another great dish was the carne asada, New York strip steak in an adobe sauce, served with a cornmeal crusted tomatillo and a creamy Poblano corn rice that delivered a satisfying dose of comfort and reminded me of grits but with better texture.
