Chicken Taquitos and Carnitas made with braised pork shoulder, adobo, grilled pineapple, cilantro, onion, and lime.
So I went to a new Mexican joint in town—well, it’s fairly new. It’s actually been around about 18 months but this was my first time there. Here you have good authentic Mexican cuisine being delivered right to your table.
There was a bit of spice to my dishes, but I was able to muster it down. I don’t like spicy foods with a lot of heat—or any heat really. I really don’t like the idea of my mouth burning full of flames while I’m trying to enjoy a meal.
I spend most of the time drinking large amounts of cold water just to put the fire out of my mouth. Where’s the fun in that?! This makes eating less enjoyable for me. But despite the heat the food had, the food was REALLY good.
Pork Chimichanga and Queso Fundido made with chorizo rojo, Chihuahua cheese, poblano rajas, and oregano.
I just love when I can find a new hometown restaurant to try. It’s always fun finding new things to add to your repertoire of knowledge of life.
Horchata made with rice, almond, canela, and vanilla.
Ahhh, this was a lovely drink. I had never had a horchata before. You know what it tasted like? It tasted just like the rice, sugar, cinnamon, and milk I used to eat as a kid.
Now that I’m reminiscing about it, I think I shall like to make a bowl of it again soon.
So, if you have nothing else to do today, find a Mexican joint you’ve never tried before in your hometown and enjoy the lovely cuisine they have to offer.
Take-Away Life Lesson: It’s always good to have the fire department on speed-dial should you encounter a mouth full of spicy hot foods again.
