And boy is that a mouthful. According to Bushwick Daily, the owners of Hard Times Christmas Liquors At The Sunset Bar are trying to make the menu and vibe more accessible (translation, more affordable) since they’d seen a dip in traffic in the evenings. They scrapped most of the old menu and are now serving “elevated bar food” including chicken and waffles and mapo nachos:
I sampled the chicken and waffles and buffalo wings, both made-over mainstays from Montana’s Trail House, and a whole new dish, mapo nachos. Each dish was downhome and familiar, but they were also all elevated by the same types of Asian flavors you can find at Strange Flavor which, when you also consider Klein’s experience in the Mission Chinese kitchen, makes sense.
The nachos are built on a base of perfectly house-fried tortilla chips, none of that “corn chip” nonsense here. They’re topped with much of the usual: jalapenos, cilantro, fresh pico de gallo, a crema-like sauce. There are a couple of curve balls as well: In place of the standard guacamole there are tempura fried avocado wedges, and then there’s the mapo.
Hard Times Christmas Liquors At The Sunset Bar opened for business January 15.
