And Knowing (the right Mexican restaurant) is Half the Battle…

March 4, 2008

Another great find in the North Hills, El Campesino…and frequent stop for G.I. Jose.

Food was great…very reminiscent of Mexico City, downtown, although still pretty good. The best part about this place…the food is served super fast. Dan & Rob had the #24 (one burrito, one enchilada and a chili relano), Ned had the burrito plate, Kristin had the #6 (burrito, taco, beans and rice, and Brian had #14 (an enchilada, a burrito, and one tamale):

All in all, this place is perfect for a quick lunch…very authentic.

Bonus Tip of the day: Rob & Kenny say “just add tequila” for that added touch to your next fiesta.


…but things could get ugly.

Ned Gets My Sloppy Sopes…

February 11, 2008

It was really strange….i had a dream where the rivers ran green with guacamole and Mexican servers attended to my every need. A virtual burrito paradise engulfed my inner being…and then i woke up on Smithfield Street. Mexico City…the restaurant, not the city is the quintessential escape to all things Mexican. Authentic meals prepared by only the best Pittsburgh Mexican folk. The service is tremendous, the food is excellent, the heartburn is real. This isn’t a new destination for our blogging crew, but rather a new post on an old favorite. On today’s menu: Ned’s Chicken Burrito, Rob’s Black-n-Gold Burrito (Carne Asada), and Brian’s Veggie Fajitas.

Honorable mention…the fresh Guacamole wasn’t ordered today:( It is…BY FAR…the best appetizer at this restaurant. Brian’s been watching his girlish figure lately, so we decided against it today. Today’s experience was so enlightening that Ned is learning to speak Spanish, fortunately for him, one of the young, supple servers is helping him with language lessons. Unfortunately for her, he’s paying her in Pesos. Pablo rating: 3 claws up!
