Las Hadas Bar and Grill, on Fourth Street in the Gaslamp District first attracted me with their happy hour menu. Nice prices, good selection on both food and drink specials, and extended hours.


I started out with a Diablo ($5), the Las Hadas take on a michelada. It was cold and refreshing, not too much lime, not too much tomato juice. The beer selection is limited, but they did have Ballast Point Pale Ale ($4 @hh) on draft for John.


The complementary corn fritas were a pleasant surprise. Moist, tender cakes of masa, studded with corn kernels were lightly fried golden and delicious. The honey butter and mildly spicy salsa were tasty accompaniments.


My Chile Verde Cheeseburger ($7) was just a little pink inside, topped with melty pepper jack, chipotle aioli, roasted green chile strips and sliced avocado. The bun had been buttered and grilled, a very nice touch. The fries were okay, but they had been sitting out a bit too long and were lukewarm.


John’s Adobo Chicken Wings ($6) were a success, eight big pieces, crisp fried and lightly sprinkled with peppery spice. Drizzled with just enough adobo sauce, they were savory, tender and juicy. A side of bleu cheese dressing and chili dusted jicama sticks rounded it out.


Other happy hour selections include Coconut Shrimp, Chipotle Barbecued Ribs, and Ceviche Del Mar, priced $6 - $7 and generous enough to share. Top shelf margaritas are $5, house drinks, wine, sangria and drafts are $4.
