Not your ordinary taco joint, Lola 55 is different from the rest. The 3,200-square-foot restaurant serves Mexican gastronomic fare (not just tacos) steeped in regional tradition. Highlights include Ribeye Carne Asada, Pork Belly Al Pastor and Spicy Smoked Fish. The corn tortillas are made from scratch, and pressed to order right before guests. There are plenty of other options on the menu including aguachile, ceviche tostaditas, mesquite grilled elote and pozole verde. A well-curated list of libations mirrors the restaurant’s culinary philosophy and includes citrus-focused elements to balance the menu’s spice-forward dishes.
