Pepitas

January 6, 2015


Chicken enchilada w green sauce: Two corn tortillas rolled w chicken, covered w green sauce, topped w melted Jack cheese and sour cream, served w rice, salad and refried beans - 2

J's comment > very generous amt of cheese; green sauce quite tasty; tortilla was flour though, not corn, very soft, almost mushy, but the flavor w the cheese and sauce was yum; your avg refried beans and rice

Plato Combinado: Sample platter of:

Chile Relleno: Chile stuffed w cheese, deep-fried in a fluffy egg batter, topped w melted jack cheese, Ranchero sauce and sour cream - 2

Beef Burrito: Soft flour tortilla filled w beef and topped w ranchero sauce, sour cream and onions - 2

Chicken Chimichanga: Crisp flour tortilla filled w chicken, w jack cheese and topped sour cream, tomatoes and green onion - 2

J's comment > again, the best of the bunch was the softer tortilla, so the chile relleno 'wins', although I thought it was supposed to be a chile, not a soft tortilla wrap... ?; beef burrito's tortilla kinda firmer than I like, didn't get much beef; chimichanga was more hard than crisp

Complimentary chips and salsa - 2

J's comment > chips crisp so +1, but salty to -1 = 0 = avg; salsa needs to be in smaller chunks though

Guacamole: Avocado salsa made from tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and chiles, served w tortilla chips - 2

J's comment > surprisingly, the chips in this basket were not the same as the ones above (I thought the ones above were better as they weren't as hard as these); guacamole kinda pasty, not 'bad' per se, but definitely not as good as others I've had in the past

Chorizo: Sauteed spicy sausage, onions and potatoes - 2

J's comment > thought this was supposed to be a chorizo plate... where's the chorizo? Oh there it is, those three thinner-than-a-sheet-of-paper pieces hiding on the left, buried underneath all the potatoes

Papas Bravas: Fried potatoes w spicy tomato sauce - 2

J's comment > very spicy; potatoes not crisp as all as expected, a real let-down
