Just an ear shot from some of Denver's hippest eateries, you'll find Uno Mas tucked humbly amongst the boutiques.Tonight, skip the sushi, walk a block south, and settle into the bar at Uno Mas Taqueria. Tucked humbly amongst the boutique shops of Old South Pearl, this unpretentious space is a refreshing reminder that fine, fresh food doesn't have to come with Edison bulbs and reclaimed wood. [gallery size="large" ids="11641,11638,11640"] Uno Mas is less like an art gallery and more like an art studio – it even sports a large rooster painted on the wall, a sign of good luck in Mexico. The spot also features a 25-seat backyard patio where welcomed wafts of smoking hickory compliment chips and salsa. As for the menu, just about every type of beast is featured; whether they're smoked, grilled or even confit, your tastebuds will thank you. Just about every dish is accented by brilliant blends of smoke, tang, and just the right amount of sweetness.
Best of all, owner Patrick Mangold-White likes to keep his suppliers local and chooses free-range high quality poultry and meats, "This is about whole animal production, farm-to-plate and getting the food from our smokers into your mouth." One taste of a taco overstuffed with pork, avocado, and cojita cheese will make you want more of what he's smokin'! So, if you're looking for something closer to al pastor or vegetarian, duck, or lengua, look no further than Uno Mas. And don't forget to wash it all down with a house margarita. It'll have you saying, "uno mas"!
