  1. Cinco de Mayo, just another day but in spanish.

    Tried the new Mexican restaurant that opened a few months back. Their tamale was not wrapped in a corn husk but was corn mesa drizzled with green salsa and melted questo. It was good but not near anything I was expecting. The carne asada burrito was little heavy with rice and beans and light on the beef,

      • San Antonio ruined me on good Tex-Mex food. I don’t remember the name of the restaurant that was attached to my grandmother’s old folks beer bar but it had excellent food. Their tamales were great along with almost everything else they fixed. I found a place here in Atlanta that came close with the tamales and carne asada burritos. It did not survive the Kung Flu.

        I like a carne asada burrito with peppers, onions, and cheese. When you list a carne asada burrito on the menu but do not provide a description you tend to end up with a rice and re-fried been burrito with a few pieces of steak thrown in for flavoring.

        That was their one chance and they blew it. There are a couple more restaurants that have popped up in the last few months that aren’t too much of a drive. One is a small storefront attached to a gas station convenience store named Maria’s Tamales. They are next on my list to try.

      • The further one gets from Mexico, the less likely to find decent Mexican food it seems.
        Even here in town, the local Mexican food restaurant that usually has a full parking lot for lunch and dinner? even I make better Mexican food than they do; very bland. for the non discerning palate, I suppose.
        You and I, we expect a lot from Mexican food joints, and we should.

      • On another note I smoked a brisket today. Two hours on the smoke and 4 hours at 200 in the oven. I sliced it and trimmed out the fat and pulled it. I took some and added some Foxx Bros. BBQ sauce from Decatur St in Atlanta. Nirvana, BBQ sandwich perfection. Perfect amount of smoke and classic ATL medium hot sauce. I think my sandwich is better than theirs and we are using the same sauce.

      • The kid just loves the brisket. I think there is still enough for another day for her. I’ll need to get another, cut off the flat part, and freeze the two chunks for next time.

  2. Priceless! Plus I got my Cross-Cultural training for the month, so I can check that one off on my scorecard in case the Brown Shirts come calling in the middle of the night.
