Chili Relleno, black beans and tortillas at Los Cilantros – 12 November 2015

main151112setting151112I went to a talk on “quote mining” at La Pena, and got my dinner at the adjacent/next door restaurant Los Cilantros. I had a chili relleno, which was topped with a squidge of sour cream and swimming in tomato sauce along with some good black beans. Three tiny corn tortillas were wrapped and warm on the side. I like the taste of the chili relleno and all the trimmings, together and separately, and wrapped in a tortilla – every which way – but I thought the cheese inside the chili was a bit dense, and the chili itself could have been roasted longer. Overall, though, quite good.

I spent almost $30 including a 20% tip. The lecture was free and interesting.








For lunch we had another avocado with the rest of the cottage cheese and more of the ketchup-based dressing from D’s Mom’s friend VJ. Delicious lunch!lunchmain151112
