Noche Mexican BBQ dishes out a new winter menu

Don’t worry, the armadillo eggs are here to stay.


Noche opened in 2019 and one of the menu items it’s known for are the armadillo eggs, which are not actual eggs, but bacon wrapped jalapeños stuffed with cheese and chorizo.

Noche Mexican BBQ will launch its new winter menu tomorrow, Jan. 5, at its flagship Highlands restaurant (1838 Bardstown Rd.) — which you can’t miss since it’s located inside a huge historic Gothic Revival-style cathedral.

While the Noche burrito and quesadilla are exiting the dinner menu, some new dishes are entering the chat.

Here’s what’s coming to the dinner table:

  • Smoke brisket bolitas — fried rice balls with brisket + Oaxaca cheese served with cascabel chile aioli
  • Mole blanco — white chocolate and macadamia nuts
  • Vegan mole — sauteed mushrooms and potatoes
  • Enchiladas — brisket or chicken tinga + red or green enchilada sauce

Noche recently opened a second location at Paristown’s Village Market Food Hall. The new winter menu won’t be available here yet, but you can still get the aforementioned burrito and quesadilla at the new spot.

Both of Noche’s locations open daily at 11 a.m. for lunch + dinner.
