When No Other Cuisine Will Do

What other cuisine? Why would you want to eat anything else when The Shed makes posole like this? If you don’t like posole (or if for some crazy reason you’ve never tried it), you must try the humble hominy stew in this cozy old adobe on Palace Avenue. Studded with pork, dotted with garlic and accented with oregano, it’s got flavor! As does the refreshing gazpacho, served ice cold, and the carne adovada, served red hot. In the summer, you can’t beat a leisurely lunch on the quiet patio; in the winter we like to huddle up in one of the cozy nooks inside. The Shed’s famous for its margaritas—we enjoy ’em year ’round! This old adobe’s lumpy, bumpy, curving walls are always familiar, the service friendly and the food? It just tastes like home.
