Peeling red paint on weather-worn siding of a glorified barn—not an auspicious first impression!

We wait to be seated. The décor is both trendy and quaint: Dim light, dark paneling, streamers with various-colored lights, Sombreros on one wall.

Seated at last, we order. My enchilada is as good as any I had at home. A delightful surprise!

  1. Nice travel commentary! Fun to look for the out-of-the-way non-corporate, ma-and-pa looking places to eat. And always fun when their food turns out to be deliciously delightful — as is your haibun! 🙂
