Yesterday I ended up at Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila Bar — a truly wonderful culinary experience (albeit with an unbelievably, comically horrible waiter). Dinner started with the lovely pink drink pictured above: a virgin blended Prickly Pear Margarita. Delicious! Then came the guacamole (pictured at the bottom of this post), made-to-order right in front of us to our desired level of hotness. The accompanying chips were lightly spiced with a chili powder medley that lent them a nice mild flavor of their own. Finally, the main course:
That’s right: cheese enchiladas verdes, and boy was that sauce fresh! As you can see, the meal came with rice and beans — light, fluffy rice and vegetarian refried beans — and the enchiladas were perfectly cheesy without being sickeningly rich. A hard balance to attain, I’ll admit, but nicely done in this case! Yummy! Slightly overpriced, but definitely worth it if you’re willing to splurge.
