Over the weekend, I was texting my friend that I was craving Mexican food. The legit kind.
She responded that she knew a few authentic Mexican places. We planned at that moment to get Mexican food for lunch.
Today, my friend took me to a restaurant called Real de Minas. Never heard of it before. But my friend ensured me that it was very good.
Walking in, the place gave a cozy feel by the Mexican decoration on the walls.
When I was browsing the menu, my friend suggested for me to get the combo in order to try different dishes. She showed me food items I didn’t know about before.
She explained that tostada is basically like a taco, except it is served on a flat tortilla. Then, she talked about what a chile relleno was (seen it before on the Food Network). She advised me to get shredded beef as my meat.
I ended up ordering the tostada and chimichanga! Figured that I should try something new instead of getting the typical burrito or tacos.
While we waited for the food, we were served with chips, salsa, and an avocado sauce. The avocado sauce was so refreshing. I spread the avocado sauce over my entree.
My friend shared her chile relleno with me and it was so good! I wished I got it! Oh well.
The tostada was my favorite. It was easier to eat than a typical taco. Not messy at all.
Following our lunch, my friend mentioned a Mexican bakery she knew. She asked if I wanted and I just said yeah.
The bakery was so cute with Mexican fiesta decorations. Forgot to take pics.
The bakery reminded me of the bakeries in Beijing because of the trays and tongs. I loved going into the bakeries in Beijing because they were full of sweets and stuffed bread.
My friend quickly selected the sweet for me. She kept saying, “Oh, you have to try this. You have try this.” She kept on grabbing different sweets.
I was surprised that the sweets were so cheap. Great deal!
Very grateful for taking me out for legit Mexican food and sweet today!
