    Nacional 27's BBQ'd Lamb Tiny Tacos
    What's in it? We season and slow braise the lamb shoulder for 12 hours, then mix the lamb with a homemade blue agave barbecue sauce, jicama and carrot. Then we fill some mini taquito shells with the lamb filling and place it on a cool bed of guacamole. The homemade barbecue sauce has ancho pepper, chipotle pepper, guajillo pepper, vinegar, hoisen and blue agave syrup. The tacos are garnished with a little chopped cilantro.
    Suggested Pairing: "I would recommend the richly balanced El Corazon Margarita (Corzo Silver tequila, pomegranate, passion fruit, blood orange and a kosher salt and tellicherry pepper rim, $14) or a bold red wine from Spain." -- Bar Chef Adam Seger
    How much is it? $3.95
    Chef Tim Hockett says: "This dish is a playful, tasty version of traditional lamb barbacoa found in Mexico. It combines the spicy lamb with a crunchy taquito shell, cool guacamole and a sweet barbecue sauce, making for a great appetizer."
