Moonshine is the star of the show at MASH’D. Their craft drinks will quench your thirst regardless of your mood, and I must suggest the Bootleg Mule, it provides a refreshing twist by adding a cherry limeade flavor to excite the palate. Aside from environment and drinks, the hype around MASH’D emanates from the impressive menu of indulgent meat-centered dishes. Among these are the Pot of Goat, Turkey Burger, and the Serious Queso (with fried chicken), all of which are good, but better after a glass of moonshine.
With all the hype I was expecting a life changing meal, but my dinner fell short. Don’t get me wrong, I would go back, but there was something missing in every dish I tried. The Pot of Goat lacked an integration of flavor; you can taste the marmalade and the goat cheese as individual ingredients, but they did not seem to blend together in a palatable way. As for the Serious Queso, the addition of the fried chicken definitely stepped the classic Tex-Mex staple up a notch. However, the queso itself resembled a thick cheese fondue instead of a well-spiced ‘cheese dip’.
The food remains an understudy to the drinks and the environment, but it will satisfy your indulgent cravings. As for
the gluten-free diner, like myself, they do an exemplary job of creating an extensive list of options, which is a big plus in my book. Overall, my experience at MASH’D was pleasant enough to recommend, providing the diner with good food, great ambiance, and exemplary cocktails.
