It is so bitter cold here in Georgia that my honey and I started wishing we were back in Cancun where it is warm and sunny. The conversation naturally turned to good food and I remembered I wanted to share with you our meal at El Poblano. This is a restaurant were the locals come to eat. With all of the staff working there on New Year's Eve, only one woman spoke a smattering of english. We knew that we found a great restaurant if that were the case. Additionally, the large spit of meat that was in the front of the restaurant was the second tip off. As this was New Year's Eve, all of the drinks were two for one. So double beers for my honey and I had a Margarita for each hand. Let the games begin!
Front of the restaurant proclaiming it is a "taqueria" or a taco restaurant.
Do you see the giant spit of pork in the front of the restaurant? This would turn slowly and continue to grill and savor. It is from this spit that my honey's tacos were filled. Let me also mention the delicious, hand prepared flour tortillas that were to die for.
Pico de Gallo, green chili sauce and red chili sauce is at every table along with their hot, prepared tortilla chips from fresh corn tortillas.
I ordered something called Bistek It was a large, homemade roll (to die for) filled with grilled steak, onions, fresh avocado and cheese. I squeezed fresh lime juice over the meat and dug in. This was a huge, freshly baked roll and out of this world.
