Chef Michael Symon’s Mabel’s BBQ at the Palms has some smokin’ new menu items.
Mabel’s has added a selection of made-from-scratch tacos and tamales, many of them incorporating the restaurant’s barbecued meats. Taco fillings are wrapped in house-made tortillas with choices of pork shoulder, smoked chicken or beef brisket, plus a vegetarian melange of smoked mushrooms with avocado, cilantro and crema. The selection is rounded out with the ’Merican, a hard-shell taco with ground beef, pico de gallo and Monterey jack cheese. They’re $4 each.
Choices of tamales made from masa formed in-house and steamed in corn husks, $3 each, are the KC BBQ Brisket, the smoked meat finished with mustard, tomato and paprika; smoked chicken, with salsa verde, jalapeno, roasted garlic and tomato; pork shoulder; and vegetarian, with Monterey jack cheese, jalapeno and smoked poblano peppers. Mabel’s also has added freshly made guacamole with house-made chips, $9.
The restaurant from Symon continues to offer pig parts such as crispy tails and crispy ears, $8; smoked meats by the pound, $15 to $19; Cleveland-style dishes such as kielbasa, $12; or chopped pork with sauerkraut and jalapenos, $15; sides such as smoked beets with horseradish, $7; and fried potatoes with scallions and sherry vinegar, $6; and three salad choices, $13 to $15.
