Dishes to Order in a Mexican Restaurant
Going out for Mexican food always feels fun because even an ordinary dinner turns into a fiesta. That's because Mexican food is so flavorful and lively, a perfect reflection of the Mexican culture. Navigating a Mexican menu can be tough though because there are so many options. How do you choose the best one? Here are our suggestions!
Guacamole and chips
You'll need something to munch on while you enjoy your cervezas and margaritas so go for some guacamole and chips. As a bonus, if you have any leftover guacamole after this, you can use it to top your entree.
There are enchiladas with red sauce, white sauce too. But the most traditional are the ones with green (verde) sauce. They are corn tortillas filled with shredded chicken, pork or beef that are then covered with a green salsa, a dollop of sour cream and sprinkled generously with white cheese.
As an added bonus, tamales are pretty! They're like little gifts you have to unwrap from the corn husks they're steamed in. You can order them with chicken, beef or pork filling, and good ones will also include an olive in the filling because traditionally, this is food luck.
Think of it as a cousin of creme brulee. It's a caramel custard but it's not torched on top to caramelize the sugar. It's a great way to end your Mexican meal.
