Inventive Mexican cuisine & cocktails in a chic setting accented by local art & a rooftop deck.
El Alma is a vibrant, homespun take on the contemporary flavors of Mexico. Chef Alma Alcocer-Thomas prepares food as she might cook for you in her home.
Diners will find tacos al pastor, queso, and carne asada tacos, but will also have an array of small plates and sophisticated entrees using fresh ingredients and richly layered sauces including duck enchiladas with mole, relleno de camarones (shrimp-stuffed poblano served with chipotle sauce and corn pudding), and for the hearty vegetarians out there, smokey ancho relleno stuffed with seasonal vegetables. Alcocer also features one of her childhood favorites, â€˜gringas,' a popular Mexico City snack made of flour tortillas, cheese, and savory pastor.
â€œI wanted to create a menu that would fit the location on Barton springs,â€ says Alcocer. â€œIt's fun, flavorful Mexican food that is very approachable. It's a casual, authentic representation of the food I grew up eating.â€
