|Raspberry Margarita! Drink up!|
The lady had a snippet to write about the Margarita:
"The drink menu offers traditional cocktails with a variety of options. There are several tequilas to choose from and margaritas can be made in different fruit flavors. You can even add strawberries to your mojito. I tried the frozen raspberry margarita. This wasn’t a thick-frozen style drink, and I think I preferred it that way; the alcohol and flavoring didn’t settle out of the slush. It was balanced, not too alcoholic and not weak, either. The gentleman lamented the lack of orange flavor, but not being a fan of the traditional margarita I have to say I liked it without it."
|What a cute molcajete!|
|This molcajete is shaped|

|Fresh Guacamole served in the molcajete. Delicious!|
"Enchiladas de Mole Poblano – this is my go-to dish when I eat at Maya. It consists of three soft corn tortillas filled with shredded chicken and covered in a lovely dark mole’ sauce, then smattered with cheese. This is pure comfort food. Factor in the side of rice and beans, then the guac and crema,and I can usually only make it through two of the tortillas, tops. Luckily, it reheats well for lunch the next day as long as you don’t mind forsaking the enchilada format and going for something a little closer to chicken mole’ hash."
|Enchiladas de Mole Poblano - dig in!|
The lady actually took one the enchiladas home and had it for lunch the next day. Score!
For my own dish, I got the Carne Asada. This came out as advertised, and I have to tell you - they did it pretty damn good. This was basically pretty simple - a marinated, grilled piece of skirt steak, served with rice, beans, and some guacamole on the side.
|This pic doesn't do the steak justice - this Carne Asada was awesome!|
|More lovely wall hangings!|
|Come enter the cantina! Hey, who's head is that in the corner there?!|
