La Fiesta

La Fiesta

Taco platter ALMOST sways lunch order

It was a perfect day for lunching out on the veranda of Jesse, Lupe, and David Castro’s La Fiesta Mexican restaurant just off of I-75 on NW 39th Ave.  The vibrant blue sky and the warmth from noon day sunshine made the cool winds creeping in from the north tolerable.  Lunch pal Jules Gollner was trying to convince me that the La Fiesta taco platter (image at top) would be a better choice for the GLOB Master than my usual chili relleno, hard shell taco (image underneath) Mexican lunch.  I must admit Jule’s tacos looked mighty tasty.  I like the idea of two hard shell and one soft shell taco on her plate.  The idea of having a chicken, beef and also refried bean taco was enticing.  Mexican cuisine for me is the crunch of the taco, the spice of the peppers and other Mexican spices and the creaminess of the refried beans.  Jules asked for a bite of my excellently prepared chile relleno and afterwards had to agree that the La Fiesta chile relleno is one of the best entrees, in any cuisine, in the GLOB.

    Kudos to Pammy H for clearly stating why being a Mexican cuisine lover involves a certain discretionary sense of taste, refinement and love of bold flavors and textures. Everything shouldn't have to taste like mashed potatoes . . .

    Every 'damn' Mexican restaurant is the same thing ... but everyone has some small differences in the food and the ambience is usually somewhat different. If there were 100 Mexican/Latin restaurants in GVL, I'd have to try every 'damn' one of them!!! Love me some Mexican food!!!

    Every damn Mexican restaurant is the same thing and I understand a new one has just opened in the old Hooters. Just what G'ville needs!
