Gish Bac is open seven days a week, but the focus should very much be on the weekends. Why? Because that’s when their barbacoa (lamb and goat BBQ) fires up, and it’s life-changing. The meat is cooked over avocado leaves, and while we can’t say exactly what the direct effect of that is, it’s still an exciting statement to say to your friends who you’re dragging along. The bright spot in Mid City is also very easy to find, with plentiful parking, and there’s a salsa bar you’re definitely getting involved with.
