Keith took me to Cantina Laredo, a new (to us) gourmet mexican restaurant for my birthday last night. It was WONDERFUL!!
We had Queso Laredo and chips and salsa for an appetizer. It was quite tasty. It was queso that had taco meat, pico de gallo, and tomatoes. It was a serving big enough for the both of us and then to have some left over to have with dinner (I like to put queso on my tacos, fajitas, burritos, you name it : )
For dinner Keith ordered the Fiesta Grill and I ordered Beef Fajitas (adventurous, I know). When our food came out it was like heaven….
Keith’s Fiesta Grill had enough food for 3 people (literally!). It had shrimp, costillas (beef short ribs), quail, beef, and chicken fajitas! All of which was AMAZING (Keith let me have a little taste : )
My Beef Fajitas were delicious. The best flavored beef I’ve ever had, actually. Seasoned just right and cooked to perfection. And I had more than enough queso to top them off!
And on to my favorite part…..DESSERT!! They had a great selection of desserts, but we decided to go with the Mexican Apple Pie, which was sizzled in mexican butter (you can actually see it sizzling in the picture) and topped with cinnamon ice cream. It was by far the best apple pie I’ve ever had. Keith would have licked the skillet if he could have, I think. Our waiter even put a sparkler on it for my birthday : )
We had a wonderful time at Cantina Laredo and will definitely be going back! Everything from the atmosphere, to the food, to the waiter were just perfect.
It was the perfect birthday, dinner. Thanks for a great night, honey. I love you!
