Why we're saying "Yes, please!" to cheese at La Mezcaleria.
Depending on what part of the Spanish-speaking world you’re visiting, fundido can mean bankrupt, spoiled or just really tired. Here in Vancouver it means melted, and when La Mezcaleria pairs it with queso in a primordial-looking volcanic bowl (a molcajete) you have an over-the-top dish that frankly spoils with its richness, morally bankrupts those on a diet and, depending on how many times you dive back into the bowl, can leave your biceps feeling really tired. The allure lies in the simplicity: melted mozzarella, some herbs. We gravitate to the queso fundido con salsa verde ($21) version for the sad reason that the bitterness of the tomatillos and serrano peppers allows us to continue eating even when we’re full.
