La Gloria is chef Johnny Hernandez' living tribute to the street food of Mexico. The menu revolves around the dishes Hernandez encountered while traveling in the pueblitos, mountains, and coastal villages of Mexico. He aims to make tacos al pastor that taste just like the pork-and-pineapple tacos you might buy from a street cart in Mexico. Hernandez is also passionate about tlayudas, a type of Mexican pizza that is commonly served in Oaxaca. Another favorite is ceviche Veracruzano, which is made of marinated fish, lime juice, olive oil, tomatoes and onions. Mexico-inspired drinks include the prickly pear margarita and Sangria La Gloria, which combines red wine, rum, and fresh fruit.
