DENReview

Mister Oso’s squat green bungalow and vine-covered patio make it the closest thing you’ll find to an oasis in RiNo. It also doesn’t hurt that the food - tacos, cebiche, coconut rice, and varied salads - also has a habit of transporting us to a vacation mindset. The dishes recall memories of island taco stands, while plates arrive stacked high with buttermilk fried chicken, pastor with roasted cauliflower, and pork belly with tomato escabeche and poblano sweet and sour. The daily roster of frozen drinks is equally fun and always full of rum, mezcal, fresh fruit, and the occasional splash of fernet, just as it should be.
