las tortugas: deli mexicana

Ok, I'm going to make you drool.
I took some time off today amid all the errand-running and accounting (the less glamorous side of the bakery!) to get lunch with my mom at one of our favorite spots, Deli Mexicana. It's quite a drive for me and I haven't gotten to spend much time with Mom lately, so it was a real treat!

We had some delicious queso with avacado and cilantro and the best drink ever, their limeade! Mom had the tostadas de tinga de polla (a chicken thingie that she gets every time) and I had my favorite, de huachinango (red snapper/tilapia tacos).

Y'all, this is REAL Mexican food, not Tex-Mex. The food is crazy good, made with super-fresh ingredients, and the owners, Jonathan and Pepe, are so fabulous. Jonathan knew I'd be in a hurry and he so sweetly kept my order on "stand-by" so it'd be made the instant I stepped in the door.

Mad props to Jonathan and the deliciousness that is Deli Mexicana! Check the website HERE.
