We took a drive to the Mill Creek Town Center to have lunch at La Palmera. It’s a mexican joint, in case you couldn’t tell. It was doubly gawdy as it was decorated in over-the-top mexican kitche, along with valentine’s day decorations. It was a garish combo. But there was nothing garish about the chips and salsa. Good stuff. The salsa was just spicy enough, but not too much so. I got an enchilada and taco combo, both with beef. It came with beans and rice, both of which were pretty good. I liked the enchilada, the taco was only ok. It wasn’t particularly authentic, and the taco would have been much better with a soft corn tortilla and real fixins, like onions and cilantro, instead of lettuce, cheese, and tomatoes. Enchilada was pretty good though. B got the gordita combo. EEG. Take a look at this humongo thing. It’s like an enormous taco. Or a taco salad served in a big shell, instead of a bowl. It’s daunting, isn’t it? Service was just fine. Pretty decent food at decent lunch prices.
