Last week’s Saturday dinner was great but I admit that we did over-indulge. Hence, a change was in order. This time, we wanted to go light.
We have been to this Mexican restaurant a few times, and we both took a liking to their food. Thus, when we were in the area, we decided to go back once again. It was great! The servings were large, and we did take home half of our order.
mixed vegetable empanada with spicy scallion & pepper sauce. this dish was great even without the sauce
shrimp soup ( saucy scallion & pepper broth flavored with lemon, cilantro, fresh chopped tomato, peppers, guacamole, shrimp and sliced avocado) – this was divine!
monica- his fresh vegetable juice (pineapple, apple, lemon, cilantro, ginger, cucumber, carrot & spinach) and my horchata ( cinnamon rice milk)
my smokey Joe’s burrito (breaded and fried eggplant tossed in chipotle sauce with sweet potatoes, corn, carrots, celery, cheddar cheese & blue cheese dressing)
his crab, shrimp & cado wrap (claw crab meat & shrimp, sliced avocado, tomatoes, cucumber, shredded lettuce & carrots)
A couple of hours after we got home, because we skipped dessert altogether, and we needed our sweet fix, we turned to these Macadamia Nuts coated with Dark Chocolate. A couple of balls for each of us did the trick!
