I have a bit of an aversion to eating at high end shopping malls like la Encantada. Generally, I think the restaurants there serve overpriced subpar food in atmospheres where people come to see and be seen and it doesn’t matter how the food tastes as long as it’s pretty and expensive. I’ve found this to be true at NoRTH and Ra particularly.
However, I like Blanco Tacos and Tequila, which is all the more surprising given that it’s a chain Mexican restaurant in the land of bonafide real spectacular Mexican food. However, it’s hard to argue with good food, no matter the package in which it comes.
Their salsa and guacamole are great
As are the carnitas tacos
A little taco of pork, pico de gallo and cabbage
All good simple quality ingredients.
The baby cleaned up all the dipping sauces and ate 2 cobs of corn
And then did a little shopping
She’s one of my favorite kids
And not just cuz she dresses like me :)
If you find yourself hungry at La Encantada, eat at Blanco.
And bring along a cute baby for company!
