Posts Tagged ‘Carnitas’

“Brunch” this past weekend. Don Goyo’s Mexican Food. Lucky we went soon after opening. Filled up pretty fast. The Cat wanted to try the carnitas (the dish approved by cuz P).

Carnitas

Roasted pork served with lettuce, pico de gallo and guacamole. Choice of corn or flour tortillas.

As good as the first time, slightly crispy on the outside, moist and juicy (and a little fatty) on the inside. Yum!

Since The Cat ordered the carnitas, The Mouse went with another dish that routinely sells out, chile verde.

Chile Verde

Pork in a green tomatillo sauce, served with pico de gallo and sour cream. Choice of corn or flour tortillas.

The Mouse is torn. There are now two favorite dishes at Don Goyo’s. What a dilemma. And, to add to the “problem”, server said that the chile rojo is also excellent. Decisions, decisions (in a good way). ­čÖé

And just to try.

Mexican Soda

Hibiscus flavor? It was okay, nothing bad, did not knock the socks off. But, try try.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Carnitas and Head Cabbage

A minute in the micro a drop each of shoyu and green tabasco and voila! Kalua pork and cabbage distant cousin. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A former co-worker (thanks M) and a stranger that struck up a conversation with The Cat recommended here.

The Mouse has been avoiding Mexican cuisine due to his age related onset of lactose intolerance to dairy. And since past experience with Mexican food included a load of cheese … well, the best defense is avoidance.

But, The Cat wanted to try. So, with a container loaded with lactase pills, The Cat and The Mouse went to try try.

Salsa had a bit of heat, but not intolerable to The Cat and The Mouse. Off to a good start.

Guacamole

Server suggested a bowl. House-made. Awesome.

Uhm, no. Adventurous but, a little too early for that.

The Cat’s order. Covered with mango and avocado, The Cat’s favorite fruits. The Cat also liked the beans.

Carnitas Plate

Carnitas Plate

The Mouse’s order. Only cheese was a little bit on the beans, easily handled. Came with three small corn tortillas (in the foil). Well cooked. Not pork belly (I think it was shoulder), but very acceptable.

Ran out of flan for dessert. Reason to return. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
