Happy Black Friday! I did not go shopping, but I did eat. Gorgeous day in Orlando. I got a tip from @eatlocalorlando and @yelporlando about a great Mexican restaurant in Orlando. Thanks to C and C for their recommendations.
Thanks to @droolius for his suggestions as well.
Nice and cozy place. People were seated behind me in the one and only booth and the rest were stools like shown in the pictures above. This place could probably seat about 15 people max. My kind of restaurant.
An assortment of tacos: Pastor, Pibil (Yucatan Slow Roasted Pork), Grilled Chicken, Chorizo, and Steak. And needless to say they come with cilantro and onions. Wifey and I started with these and had to get a second round because they were so good. Decided on getting them a la carte to try a bit of everything. Round two was just as tasty as round one.
Veronica our server and possibly part owner had told me that they make their aguas frescas from scratch.
The Mexican food is truly authentic and cooked with the D.F. flare that you don’t find in most parts of Orlando or Florida for that matter. I see why they are highly rated in all their reviews.
Don’t be fooled by the pictures. This place is hoppin’ at all times. Wifey made an observation. Even though there were Latinos who were in the restaurant, most of their clientele were Americanos. We ALWAYS enjoy seeing diversity within a Mexican restaurant. All for the love of food.
Wifey, baby girl, and Foodbidden APPROVED.
