I ordered gorditas rajas con queso but was told they were out. Bummer. I settled for just veggie gorditas, which means beans, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and sour cream. I wasn’t sure what to expect, because what I consider gorditas are actually sopes. These were more like sopes in sandwich form. I loved the beans but wished for a little more flavor in the gorditas. I wished there was cotija cheese on the beans or in the gorditas.
Graham chose the fish tacos with extra rice and no beans. How a person could not be a fan of beans I will never understand, but to each his own.
I am told that to find good Mexican food I should go to the Pilsen neighborhood. Sadly, that part of the city is a bit of a drive from our place. Perhaps we’ve venture there sometime soon. In the meantime, I will look for other Mexican restaurants to try and ask my mom how to make some of her best dishes. I just hope I can do the recipes justice.
