I had perused their menu online and had an idea of what I wanted. When I got there my guy said they don't really use menus (the chef changes it daily) and so we sort of discussed what I was going to have. That's all well and good if money is no object (this is not a cheap taco stand). Anyway, I knew that I wanted a tamale so we started there.
I'm going to say right off the bat that this was the best tamale I have ever had. The masa was so moist as to melt in my mouth. There was a good amount of beef inside and lots of cheese, sauce and toppings but it is all about the tender masa. Picture me amazed!
Next up was a couple of Grilled Mahi Mahi Tacos. These are now also on my best ever list at least among the totality of tacos that I remember!
Before all of this, I had been served chips and salsa. To my surprise, they weren't house-made but the salsa was great.
This was an exceptionally cool place, The staff were excellent and seemed to know everyone who came through the door. I arrived a little after 11 am and sat at the bar but by 11:20 or 11:45 on a Wednesday morning the place was already full.
My tab for a tamale and 2 tacos was $27.50. A little steep but not bad considering the quality and sheer delisiosity of the food! I knew it was coming because I had looked online but if you hadn't you might have a bit of a shock. I guess it's like a Rolls Royce dealership where if you have to ask, you can't afford it.
For what it's worth, I give Irma's 4 1/2 out of 5. The food is amazing but the no menu thing is kind of bullshit. Use a chalkboard.
