Best Thing We Ate Last Night: Foie Gras Al Pastor at Xixa

If you’ve been to Traif in Williamsburg, you know the deal at Xixa, its newish sister resto: inventive small plates that leave you overwhelmed with options. Xixa’s (pronounced shiksa—yes, you are sensing a Jewish theme here) offerings skew Mexican, and these eclectic tapas have you wanting to order every single one. But if there’s one dish you can’t miss, it’s the foie gras al pastor.

Perfectly seared foie sits stacked on top of roasted chipotle pineapple and torrejas, which are essentially Mexican French toast. The wacky combo of savory foie gras paired with spicy pineapple and sweet, airy bread is almost too decadent to handle—not that that stopped us from devouring every last bite.
