Bar snacks include shrimp ceviche with green papaya, and corn dogs with Huitlacoche mustard. Also on the menu, Baby Back Rib Carnitas with salsa verde, Chicken Kebabs with black pepper mole and Chicken Wings with brown butter macha. Empellón al Pastor also features a full bar and eclectic Mexican artwork.
