<strong>Hello lovely Luuuxers!</strong>
For my friend`s birthday, a group of my girlfriends and I went to a Mexican restaurant downtown that I have heard raves about! I was starving, and I am glad to say that this restaurant did NOT disappoint! In fact, I think this is the best Mexican food I have ever tried! My friends all agreed...when I asked my one friend how she enjoyed her dish, all she could say was that "her life has been changed forever"! Hah!
Instead of getting one entree, I decided to order two appetizers instead, since I am way too indecisive! I figured that I would probably end up coming back here eventually and could try the other items on the menu. My first order was the <strong>Guacamole Trio</strong>, which had the following guacamole types:
-Rojo (with sundried tomatoes, roasted onion, and red jalapeno salsa) <--my favorite!
-Fruta (with mango, guava, habanero and crushed walnuts)
I am a HUGE fan of guacamole, and a good guacamole will make me rave about any restaurant! They were served with a basket with three different kinds of chips for dipping: corn chips, sweet plantain chips, and malanga chips. I loved how I could pair the different guacamole flavors with the different types of chips for a lot of variety!
Then, my second dish was the <strong>Empanadas con Platanos Fritos</strong>, which were, according to the menu, "plantain dough turnovers filled with black beans, fresco cheese and diced plantains, served over tangy tomatillo salsa ; garnished with fresco cheese and sour cream". These. Were. INCREDIBLE. They weren`t super big, but they were so rich and satisfying that I was stuffed. I loved how the plantain dough and filling gave it a sweet taste, the beans made it more savory, and the tomatillo salsa made it tangy as well. The flavors came together marvelously. I could eat seriously eat these every day!
Finally, of course, we had to get margaritas!! The margaritas at this restaurant were, by far, the greatest margaritas I`ve ever tried! We got a pitcher of Mango-Passion margarita, which had Don Julio Blanco tequila, triple sec, and mango-passion juice! Topped off with a salted rim, it was heavenly!
<strong>Do you love Mexican food too? Are any of these your favorite dishes? Are you a fan of margaritas?</strong>
