For this week's review, I visited El Olvido, a five-month-old restaurant on South Broadway that owner Jorge Pingarron calls "Mexican, but not Mexican." By that he means not Colorado Mexican, because his place specializes in dishes from regions of Mexico not widely represented in Denver, including Jalisco's carne en su jugo.

To go with the review, here are some pictures of what you'll find on this "not Mexican" menu. For more photos of El Olvido, check out our slide show.
