Let's revisit Picante. We go here frequently - its very close to our house and the food is always good and Mexicany. I don't usually bring it up because of how often we grab quesadillas for BigBrother and I don't want you to know how often we're eating here because I'm not cooking, but this time I will because I discovered a new favorite - the California Burrito. By their own description, its a BIG burrito - and that it is - stuffed with chicken, rice, & beans. The salsa verde,guacamole, and cheese sauce on top are so tasty. The whole thing is salty, cheesy, with some tang from the salsa verde. I just really like this one. Here's the lineup:
Who: Me, IPA-hole, FrontloaderB, & Learning to Share
What: Me: California Burrito
IPA-hole: Chicken Fajitas
FrontloaderB: Steak Fajita
Learning to Share: Taco Salad
I don't feel like fighting the group here for the winner. Everyone thought their own was. I think the margaritas were the winner. We had a few, then went to see Ted for IPA-hole's birthday. Just a quick heads up to the dads that were in the theater with their 10-year-old sons, and to other dads thinking that they should take their sons: This is not a kids' movie. Not even close. Hilarious, but just NO. Go with your friends.
And now I feel I must elaborate on Rey Azteca. We ordered it for lunch at work one time. They screwed up the order: 4 lunches from the lunch menu. When we opened the bags, there were 3 lunches from the lunch menu and a bunch of chips. I wouldn't have been so bitter if it wasn't my lunch that was missing. So I called them and had to drive all the way back down to the restaurant to pick up the missing food. Boo. So let's add insult to injury, no one - especially not my lovely Celiac-managing sister-in-law (who we'll refer to as SILiac from here on) - got out of that meal without reprecussions. We were all sick to our stomaches for the rest of the day. That was cool with a full day of public interaction. Ha! Well, someone thought it would be a great idea to give them a second chance. Same problem, only worse this time. No thank you, Rey Azteca, I'll hit up the local Taco Bell if a need frijoles that badly - at least my food has always found its way into the bag before it left the restaurant.
Good Mexican, Bad Mexican, stay tuned for something new.
