One Tasty Taqueria

I haven't blogged much lately about food. It isn't that there isn't good food here... in fact we've enjoyed it a lot. One of our favorites is In-n-Out Burger. We ate it from time to time when we lived in Phoenix. I've also been cooking some... now that I have a real kitchen. that isn't the point of this post, though. The point of this post is to share the experience we had tonight. We went to a place called Garcia's Taqueria. It is a hole-in-the-wall for sure... no question there, but it is authentic mexican food... like so authentic that we were the only people of our ethnicity in the whole place. It is my favorite when I find a place like that.
Blake ordered a "Super Burrito" with Carne al Pastor (we think it was beef and pork). When they said Super, they really meant SUPER. It put every burrito we've ever ordered anywhere to shame size wise. Blake only ate 1/2 of it. I ordered a quesadilla with chile verde pork (spicy pork with green sauce). When the lady asked if I wanted the small or large, I said... "Large, I guess." since that was all I was ordering... and it was only $4 at that. I was surprised when it arrived and the tortilla was 18" in diameter. Wow, I may have eaten 1/3 of it. Needless to say, we have A LOT left over.
We also had a sweet treat from my past... Manzana. It is a yummy apple soda that I had when i was on a mission trip in Mexico during high school. I don't know that Blake had ever had it, so I insisted that he give it a try. His review... "It was alright." If you know Blake, that could either means he loves it or hates it. Who knows. I still don't.
Ok, so all this to say, we really enjoyed Garcia's Taqueria. It was good, cheap, and fast, but you know you aren't in TX when it doesn't have air conditioning in the restaurant. Most days it wouldn't be needed, but we are having a "heat wave", so that made it a little interesting.
Note to self: if it is warm outside, wait till sunset to go. As we were leaving, I think it had cooled of 15 degrees.
