Next up was a cup of chicken tortilla soup – next to the pineapple salsa – this was my favorite food item of the night. It’s topped with avocado, pico de gallo and sour cream. It was spicy and warm with the crunch of the tortilla strips and cool, creaminess of the sour cream and avocado – really tasty.
In the front here was – I think the fry bread taco. It was basically a corn cake served open face with chicken, peppers, tomato and cheese on top. It was pretty good but the cake had a bit of an after taste.
We also had a fish taco with avocado and a citrus slaw – it was pretty good – I don’t love the slaw – but the fish was good. The other taco was carnitas – with my beloved pineapple salsa, pickled onions, lettuce and cojita cheese – I loved this taco.
What was better than fine was this drink. I was joined by a couple of other friends and the server was pushing the sangria a bit so they tried it and LOVED this – so I had to get a glass – and then I loved it! I downed this one (as opposed to the margarita which was still sitting there). This was the Sangria Blanco ($8) – White wine, peach schnapps, strawberries, peach puree and orange juice. It was delicious! It was sweet but not too sweet (even though the ingredients make it sound crazy sweet) – all three of us agreed this was the best drink of the night. If I hadn’t been driving – there would have been a few more of these going down!
Why Should You Go? I really liked the carnitas and the pineapple salsa as well as the chicken tortilla soup – so those would be my recommendations. They’ve changed their menu quite a bit from my previous visits – the short rib app and the shrimp are gone but you can still build a burrito. All in all – it’s pretty good. But definitely go for the Sangria Blanco – yum!!
