I'd go with frajitas--shrimp. Ceviche would be second choice. All of the fish dishes sound excellent. I think they may be the restaurant's specialty.

You can always get a quesadilla in a combination that sounds good to you.
You're thinking of Spain for Paella.

Honestly, the whole menu looks very appetizing. Something for every taste...except for all the misspellings.

I suppose it is. My fav Mexican restaurant serves it. And they also make fried ice cream, which is divine.

Sorry, I've just never seen it (though I would love to) in our Mexican restaurants. I've never had fried ice cream, but I recently had fried goat cheese. It was delicious!

you're in for quite a pleasant surprise then ...

TB ain't Mexican food any more than chow mein or chop suey is Chinese food.

And you're heading to a very upscale Mexican restaurant at that, too.

Help i'm lost,
Chili Rellenos (spelling) are my favorite. They are not spicy and are a bit different from most of the Mexican food. Of course born and raised in Los Angeles, lived in Texas and NM to me all Mexican food is one step short of heaven. Or, except tomales. I can live without them. Too often the filling is almost non existent. Sorry jambo, I could bring up the menu so have no idea what is on the menu. Enjoy and report back to us.

Then you are in for a TREAT! LOL. My first foray into Mexican food was also Taco Bell. What were we thinking as college students in NEW MEXICO!? It took me a while to try real Mexican food after that. To this day I really don't like hard tacos as to me it tasted like cardboard at Taco Bell. I do enjoy fish tacos, though. Now, don't know what I'd do without the option of Mexican food, although the calories are a real concern. Moderation is the key. Now, with all the more upscale cuisine available, it's even more exciting. Still, I have to have green chile at least weekly. I have even picked my own and roasted them. Now, I just purchase and have them roasted by someone else. I peel and freeze.

Chile rellenos are my favorite also! Tamales made well are fantastic. I only eat the green chile /cheese tamales. So good. Our local natural food coop makes them and their recipe is so rich and buttery tasting. I love that Mexican food is basic, good food. Can't get better than that.
