You’ve been forewarned: Hotel Tortuga is not a hotel, and the interior features paper placemats, laminated menus, and faux croc banquettes. Fortunately, the food is better balanced then the décor. Tortuga’s gimmick is its mix-and-match menu. Pair any of the tacos, burritos, tostaditas, etc. with a variety of protein options like grilled chicken, skirt steak, Portobello mushrooms, or even vegetarian chorizo. About that vegetarian chorizo: don’t expect too much. It has nothing in common with its namesake pork product. The best of the toppings is the chicken tinga–moist, shredded, marinated meat that melds well into the burrito or an excellent portion of nachos. A side of guacamole is fresh, balanced and creamy. The duo of dessert options doesn’t provide much selection, but they do satisfy. If you save room, try the rice pudding which is spiked with a healthy dose of cinnamon.
