Hello Cinco de Mayo!

Hello Kitty Foodie wishes everyone a very happy Cinco de Mayo!

It felt like a fiesta today when I dined at a local favorite, Acapulco, for Cinco de Mayo! I got to try some old favorites and some new ones.

The meal started off with some complimentary chips and salsa.

Next up was trying their soups. There were two choices today, menudo or pozole. I chose the pozole which had plenty of maize and shredded chicken. I topped it with cilantro and red tortilla strips.

There was also a yummy fajita bar. The choices were chicken, carne asada and carnitas. I chose the chicken. I liked the onions, bell peppers that were mixed in with the charboiled chicken.

There was also a taco bar today but I chose to not make a full taco but instead just tried a little bit of the pollo al carbon and pork al pastor. Both were very flavorful.

My favorites at Acapulco are in the desserts however.

They have the best sweet corn tamale. It is so soft and sweet. It just melts in your mouth.

I also liked the churros, crispy bunuelos and banana chocolate chimichangas.
It was crispy sweet goodness all around!

Last but not least for dessert was the flan! The flan was such a great surprise for me. It was really creamy and light!

For drinks I tried the chocolate de abuelita! It was my first time drinking this here and you could really taste the touch of cinammon.

I also tried a little bit of the Agua de Jamaica. It is such a refreshing drink!
