Poncitlan Jalisco

I was craving a good Mexican breakfast for about three years now. Which was the last time I was here.

This was a great way to start my morning. I flew in to Chicago today and my parents took me straight to their favorite Mexican breakfast place. Poncitlan has been here for years. They have become good friends with my parents. Jose the owner of Poncitlan jokes with my dad about which soccer team they root for.

The place is pretty big. I mean it is no Kissimmee. This has much room and the staff here are working hard in the kitchen making every order as quickly as possible.

Guacamole. I love going to good Mexican restaurants and ordering this. All of the ingredients nice and fresh. Just what the doctor ordered.

Salsa and Guacamole.
Elvia was our server today. When we walked in the table was set and the menus laid on the table. Elvia knew my parents would be coming today since they come every Sunday. The place gets full quickly with all the locals. By the time we left people were waiting outside to be seated. Now lets talk FOOD!!

Desayuno Poncitlan. The Poncitlan breakfast. 3 over easy eggs, topped with ranchero sauce and ribeye.

Desayuno Poncitlan.
This is the same dish with no ranchero sauce. My mom and dad like it plain. I enjoyed it with the sauce on top.

Chilaquiles Rojos.
I was very hungry after a short flight from Orlando. I always have to order one more thing just to have something extra. I ordered this as a side. It tends to come with eggs and steak as well.

Elvia y Jose, Gracias for todo. Mis papas siempre hablan de ustedes y que siempre los tratan muy bien. Se los agradezco mucho.

Valerie’s Mexican Restaurant and Bakery

This establishment has Closed

Valerie’s has been here for two years and I found it by accident today. Best accident ever! 192 is always on the go and it’s always a traffic nightmare. While looking for a new place with @xobejm we found this beautiful gem of a restaurant.

Now I have always said, being Guatemalan and living in Kissimmee has made me a Mexican restaurant pro. While living in Chicago my parents always took me to Mexican restaurants. So, I have become the Mexican dining connoisseur. Kissimmee has now had more Mexican restaurants come into town.

Valerie’s is a restaurant and bakery. As you can tell by the picture they have a bit of everything. Some groceries can be picked up while getting your baked needs on this side and getting an authentic home cooked meal on the other side.

Don’t be fooled by her size. Valerie’s packs a punch when it comes to their menu selection. Carmen the woman behind all the magic makes her meals truly authentic, Guanajato Style (Insert Gangnam Style dance). While Ramon the new owner greets the customers who come in with a smile. Now, lets get to the FOOD stuff!!!

Steak taco to start with. My “Go To” dish at any Mexican restaurant. Nice bite six steak taco with cilantro and onions. Also, a side of grilled onions and lime. Perfect combination.

Steak Torta. With the works, tomato, lettuce, mayo, beans, etc. @xobejm and I like the bread extra toasty. It gives the sandwich more crunch. I chose all my dishes with steak today. I was feeling carnivorous. Great flavor in this sandwich. Carmen was happy to hear that we liked her sandwich. She emphasized that the secret ingredient is that she cooks with love.

Chilaquiles Rojos with rice, beans, and salad with avocado. The Guanajato style comes with steak, cilantro, onions, and a spicy kick that made my nose run for about thirty minutes. AMAZING!! So much kick I should have bought shin guards.

Carne Asada with rice, beans, side salad, and avocado. The meals also come with corn tortillas that are nice and hot when served to the table. Once again, great flavor! The meat was nice and tender.

Steak Gordita. I would say the picture says it all. The presentation alone is amazing. I couldn’t stop looking at it. Carmen went above and beyond on this one. She truly is an artist. Filled it to the gills with complete yumminess. This is not your regular gordita. Valerie’s has taken this gordita to a whole new level. DELICIOUS!

Baby Girl and I were too full to even see the dessert menu. We will be going again soon. Guaranteed! If the secret ingredient is love than I will be back several more times for it. Fantastic place. I highly recommend it. Great prices, great people, and amazing food. You can’t go wrong at Valerie’s!

Ramon y Carmen. Muchísimas Gracias for ser tan amables conmigo y mi nena. Nos encanta comer, pero más que todo nos encanta las personas que son cariñosas. Se nota que tienen mucho orgullo en lo que hacen. Los felicito por tener un negocio realmente Mejicano en Kissimmee. Ya saben que nos veremos muy pronto.
