Taqueria!

March 30, 2009

We have these two amazing taquerias across the street from where we live but have only gone to them recently.  The reviews on Yelp are quite convincing though, so we finally decided to go.  Tres Potrillos was wonderful!! (Someone on Yelp wrote that it’s in a shady neighborhood.  I wasn’t aware that I live in the ghett-o of Sunnyvale.  Does Sunnyvale even have a ghetto?!?)

The burrito was GARGANTUAN in size so Boyfriend and I decided to half it.  It comes with free chips and salsa.

I wanted the jumbo burrito because it comes with everything.  Sour cream, guacamole, rice, beans, lettuce and tomatoes.  Yes, lettuce and tomatoes!  I got it sans beans.  We ordered the pollo and it was incredibly flavorful.  I was worried it might be dry but it was very moist and tasted SO GOOD!  I can’t wait to try their other meats!!

Viva Las Vegas: Dos Caminos!

March 24, 2009

Boyfriend and I took a quick trip to Vegas and I got to meet up with my old partner in crime Kellie and her boyfriend Biniam.  Kellie works at the Venetian so she suggested meeting at Dos Caminos in The Palazzo.  Although she had never eaten there before, a lot of her coworkers had highly recommended the place.

The shrimp quesadilla is only on the weekday lunch menu but they made it for us that Saturday since we requested it.  All of Kellie’s co-workers had recommended we try this so Biniam and I both decided to try it.  The quesadilla wasn’t exactly what I expected (I was expecting flour tortillas) but it was so good!  Boyfriend said it tasted like a better version of Taco Bell’s Mexican pizza because it was crunchy. 😛

Boyfriend went with a turkey burrito, which I thought was an interesting selection.  It looks awfully cheesy in this picture.

This dessert platter was brought out to us for free… probably because our waiter almost spilled coffee on Biniam’s lap.  Good thing he missed and it only spilled on the table and chair.

Dos Caminos is known for their guacamole.  We ordered it and gulped it down before I could get a picture of it.  It was excellent and I would definitely get it again!!  We didn’t have the best service here (it wasn’t the worst either) but the food definitely made up for it.
