Ever tried water buffalo jerky? No? How about crispy sardines with french fries? I enjoyed Esquina because they added a twist to everything I thought I was already familiar with. Practically everything served was produced in-house and their food had that unique home cooked taste. It was a very small place, serving a maximum of about 15 people at any one time, and the owners often came out to ask us how we were doing. Because of the rotational black outs in the region, their lights went out soon after we arrived. However, instead of this dampening our experience, I think we even benefitted from it. They brought out candles and we had a romantically lit dinner under a clear star filled sky. Definitely worth it.
