El Sarape's menu is highlighted by Mexican entrees, including the platillos de la abuela (grandma's recipes). Those include albondigas al chipotle - a mixed ground meatball with a cheesy center - and the tacos de marisco - octopus, shrimp and chorizo with guacamole, cream sauce, avocado and cilantro.
