My last day in New York for this trip and it has to be Mexican food.This time it was El Toro Blanco in West Village. These were the last few days of summer so the New Yorkers were making most of the Alfresco dining. Most of the restaurants had patio seatings. We cannot enjoy this kind of dining in India.Its fun sitting outside and enjoying Margaritas with yummy nachos. So we sat outside enjoying the lovely weather. I had to have my Margarita. We ordered the Sonoran Cheese Crisp, which is kind of a Mexican pizza as it is an open faced quesadilla baked crisp with tonnes of cheese and spiced to perfection.It was sinful with all the cheese on it, but definetely worth trying. I decided to binge on it keeping all my diet resolutions aside. Doesn’t the picture speak for itself.
Well, this was so filling that there was not much room for the entrees so just asked for the Enchiladas which was stuffed with roasted corn instead of the usual filling of either black beans or mushrooms. The portion size was just right. I would have devoured the whole dish but had to keep room for dessert.
Desserts are my weakness. I can survive on them. Wish I did not have to count my calories. Whatever….I did order the dessert, though Pooja and Vikram just nibbled at it and I finished the whole dish of course.How can I waste a dessert? We ordered the Mexican Chocolate Cake which was decorated with matchstick churros and served with dulce de leche ice cream. The cake had a dash of spice added to it. By spice I mean chilli spice. But it tasted good.
