We tried some special items for the World Cup including pachuco which essentially are the Mexican version of a spring roll with ground beef and potatoes. These were surprisingly not greasy, but lacked overall flavor, unfortunately.

We also tried a classic mojito which was loaded with fresh mint and a healthy portion of rum :) The passion fruit sangria was definitely the most interesting drink we tried because it arrived topped with a jalapeno pepper filled with tequila (I let Sara take one for the team). The sangria featured Lunazal reposado, habanero-infused syrup, passion fruit puree, pinot grigio, and a ground chili pepper rim.

Since I always made room for dessert (even though we were extremely full) we tried some churros and ice cream. The churros were perfectly crispy and topped with caramel sauce, and the vanilla ice cream made for a great pairing. It was a sweet end to our indulgent afternoon.

Moe's is a great spot for watching sports and getting your Mexican food fix--just make sure you save room for those churros!
