The plates were all flavorful and differed from the average cuisine that usually passes as traditional Mexican food. We really liked the inventive use of varied ingredients and despite hitting a few hangups, we liked the direction that all of the plates were going in. If you're looking to get something out of the ordinary and expand your Mexican food palate, the Prickly Pear may very well be exactly what you're looking for.
