Te Quiero Mucho

When I think of things that I love in life: I think of friends, family, pets, clothes, and wine, but mostly, I think of guacomole. Good guacomole makes everything better. In fact, I know that I could eat chips and guac each and every day for the rest of my life and be totally fine, if a little green in complexion.

Imagine my excitement when I recently had the pleasure of dining at Molcajete Mixto in South Philadelphia. I was already enthusiastic as it's "bring your own tequila"so they can make you any fruit flavored margarita your heart desires. You can also bring your own wine for homemade sangria. Ok back to the guacomole! It was creamy, flavorful, and delicious! I highly recommend it. After I finished that off, I dug in to my entree, Tilapia a la Veracruzana which was equally fabulous. I was stuffed to the point where I may have had to "OP"- as in open pants button. Ladylike and necessary.

All in all, it was a great evening. The menu is reasonable and the ambiance is super cute. The choices are vast and the service was exceptional. I will definitely be back.

Have you been to the Cantina on 12th & Passyunk/Morris? Definitely our favorite Mexican restaurant in the city. Great mojitos, awesome food (lots of vegetarian/vegan stuff) and a $2 classic marge happy hour.

We'll have to try Molcajete Mixto to see how it holds up.

Cantina is a hipster bar. Great tequila selection and stereotypical tex mex which is better than a lot of the tex mex in the city. Molcajete however is THE mexican spot to eat! You must try the Molcajete Mixto "signature dish"; the presentation and flavor explosion is definitely worth it! Also the Conchinita Pibil - pork braised for hours in banana leaves and mexican spices...comes w/ pickeled oniions and guac. GO TO MOLCAJETE! YOU WON'T BE SORRY!
