When we hear the term “Mexican food,” the first thing that comes to mind is tacos. We blame this on late-night trips to Taco Bell in college and, more recently, all of the great taco spots that have opened up throughout the city: Coyo, Taquiza, Bodega … the list goes on.
To be honest, we’d be perfectly cool with eating tacos and queso fundido — our other kryptonite — every day. But a few recent visits to Olla opened our eyes to cuisine beyond tortillas and melted cheese. The new Mexican eatery from Coyo Taco’s Scott Linquist just took over the former AltaMare space on Lincoln Road, and it’s already on track to become a local favorite.
