Paloma is Mexican-inspired food, some traditional, some very nontraditional.
Their lamb barbacoa is a good example, using local lamb in place of the usual beef, the meat is cooked according to traditional techniques: slowly, with smoke, wrapping it in banana leaves. Served with a little cucumber-lime Mexican crema makes it a Paloma original. You can also get duck carnitas, with duck legs in place of pork, cured and crisped in duck fat instead of lard, or the vegetarian cauliflower frito tacos with marcona almonds, golden raisins and Spanish olives.
Classical Mexican taco flavors with a spin.
