My colleagues and I each ordered the house Margarita made with hibiscus flower extract to give that rich burgundy color. The drink was not bad and a great way to get us in the mood.
One colleague, JB, ordered the Mole Poblano - pulled pork seasoned with avocado leaf, baked in traditional mole poblano, topped with queso fresco, esquites, white onion and toasted sesame seeds. She noted that the sesame seeds added a different nutty flavor to the sauce. Another colleague, JG, ordered the Carne Asada Tacos. Nice pieces of Adobo marinated flat iron steak, melted queso Oaxaca, pico de gallo and a very spicy salsa de arbol arrived on a plate, with fresh tortillas on the side. But he was not a fan of the "make-your-own" presentation.
To end, I was intrigued by a few of the dessert offerings but decided to pass. However, we were presented with complimentary churros. They were much more dense, perhaps undercooked in the middle, than the classic fried churros, yet had a simple cinnamon-sugar coating that was tasty. All in all, I found Alamexo to provide a very flavorful and impressive Mexican meal. Our server, Christian, was very knowledgeable about the ingredients and polite. He did not rush us, despite the anticipated crowd due to the 'holiday'. It may not be the best Mexican food I've had, but it was pretty decent for Salt Lake City.
