I’m sorry all of my recent posts have been food related, but with the new house and our regular work schedule, we don’t find much time to do much of anything else right now.
Upon recommendation from my friend, Kristin, in addition to a well-timed Groupon, we headed to dinner at Taqueria La Fiesta Mexican Restaurant in Ann Arbor. It’s a tiny restaurant and soon after we sat down around 6pm on a Friday, it was packed. We both ordered a glass of horchata and dug into the free chips and salsa. There were three different salsas to choose from: a pico full of tomatoes, onions, and cilantro, a salsa verde, which was a little on the sweet side, and a spicier red salsa. We enjoyed all three. The horchata was excellent.
I ordered the cheese enchiladas rojas, which were served with beans, rice, and a small salad. The enchiladas were wonderful. They were smaller than the the enchiladas I’ve had in the past at other Mexican restaurants, but I thought the portion size was perfect. The rice was also very good, it was cooked perfectly and had a nice flavor and texture. The refried beans were good, but not my favorite, but I’m not sure why… The salad was simply dressed with a little oil and lime juice and was a nice addition to the plate.
Dave ordered a burrito gigante with marinated pork. It was also a platter so it came with the salad, beans, and rice as well. Dave enjoyed the burrito, but he thought he would try something other than pork next time. The other options were ground beef, marinated beef, steam beef, chicken, chorizo, grilled poblano peppers and onions, and mushroom. They had a good selection of vegetarian entrees too.
