I made the mistake of watching Bourdains' No Reservations episode last week with Kelly when he was in Tijuana eating some amazing Mexican food. Meal after amazing meal had as watering at the mouth. Kel saw that and just decided we had to get some good Mexican for ourselves. For a while now we've been saying we should check out El Vez on 13th Street so we made a reservation to head over once she got back from her day-trip up to NYC on Monday night.
That El Vex Original Guacamole tasted just as good as it looks. Even the the chips were great on their own. Perfect way to start off a Mexican dinner. A few bottles of Pacifico, for me, didn't hurt either. Of course Kel was pissed to see that they had a michelada on the menu...so we'll have to come back again when she can drink!
I went with the Taco Sampler for the main course. 5 little tacos that didn't look like a lot of food at first, but I actually struggled to finish everything. Chicken, Pork, Sea Bass, Mahi Mahi, and carne asada. Oh man. I couldn't pick which one was my favorite if you put a gun to my head....they were all awesome. Each one had a sauce that just made them so flavorful.
Kelly had to avoid the seafood since she was already at her weekly pregnant person fish quota, so she chose the El Vex Enchiladas Mixtas. Chicken, beef and pork. She reported that they were all great, but the sauce on the chicken enchilada stood out the most.
So...for those KN.com readers in the Philly area...get over to El Vez for some really good Mexican food. Go now!
Have a great weekend everyone...we'll be maxin' and relaxin' here in Newport for the big Seraphin wedding!
