YummyBites: What Do You Want for Dinner?

YummyBites: What Do You Want for Dinner?

We have the answer!

It’s the age old marital problem. One spouse asks: “Where do you want to go for dinner?” The other replies: “. . . I don’t know, you choose.” This continues with listing off different places that ALWAYS get shot down. Italian? No. Pizza? No. Thai? No. Indian? No. It usually ends with one spouse getting frustrated and choosing someplace random to which the other will inevitably say: “. . . I didn’t want to eat here.”

Folks, we’re here to save your marriage.

The next time you have a night with an indecisive spouse go to your local culinary safe space: Fresco’s Mexicana. It’s Mexican-Approved (courtesy of MMG’s Liz, who’s from California and of Mexican descent)​, and has yet to let us down. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion, needing some alone time with your spouse or trying to relax with a great margarita, Fresco’s Mexicana is the place to go. If you have time, try making a reservation as this place is extremely popular.

“I don’t like Mexican food.”

Your spouse may not like Mexican food but he or she will love Fresco’s Mexicana. Trust us. You can sit inside at a booth or table, and if the weather is nice be sure to visit their beautiful patio.
We really enjoyed their enclosed booths in the back patio, as it offers a bit of privacy while still letting you enjoy the night air. There is even live music from time to time, too.

Start off with the Queso Especial. It’s a queso dip that is layered with taco meat, sour cream, guacamole and roasted poblano crema (a type of savory cream). You might ruin your appetite, however, no one’s in a rush here. So take your time, enjoy some small talk rather than spending your time looking down at your phone (seriously, stop checking your Facebook). Order a pitcher of their Frozen Sangria Swirl. It’s a frozen sangria swirled with frozen margarita. Try it with the rim salted rather than sugared, since it’s a great compliment to the tart sweetness of the margarita.

Now, let’s introduce you to the Mexican comfort food that is Chiles Rellenos (pronounced Chee-lehs Rey-eh-noes). They are stuffed poblano peppers that are souffle battered and fried until crispy. We highly recommend the one with fajita steak that is covered in the ranchero sauce. It comes with a side of charro beans and red rice, however don’t get that. Pay the extra and instead get Mexico City Street Corn and refried beans. The street corn is grilled corn on the cob that is smothered with queso crema añejob (a crumbly salted cheese) and sprinkled with powdered red pepper. Their refried beans may be a common Mexican staple but it pairs so well with the Chile Rellenos.

After polishing off your dinner pour yourself another glass of the Frozen Sangria Swirl and order some dessert! We highly recommend their flan (ask them to hold the lime). It’s a creamy custard dessert that is light and extremely flavorful. Take your time and eat it slow as you enjoy some great conversation and a nice evening outdoors.

See, we have the answer to all of life’s problems.
