 While you've been gorging yourself on our various Bite Me dishes, let's hope you saved room for dessert. Then again, who are we kidding, there's always room for dessert, and once you've taken a tour of ZOCALO's upscale Mexican menu, the Crepas de Cajeta are the perfect way to top it all off.

What's in it?
Warm caramelized apple crepes served over a cajeta caramel sauce and complimented with dulce de leche ice cream.

Suggested pairing:
Choose one of the Añejo Tequilas from ZOCALO's extensive list.

Chef quote:
"Cajeta is a thick sauce/paste made from caramelized sugar and goat's milk. Cajeta is considered a specialty of and popularly associated with the city of Celaya in the state of Guanajuato. It is typically used to compliment fruits, ice cream or a simple slice of bread. Since our menu's focus is on regional Mexican cuisine, we wanted to make sure we incorporated this sweet staple from Celaya in our menu." -- Gus Castaneda
