So I've been craving Mexican food for weeks. Not South Beach Diet friendly. After a morning of running errands, no workout, blah, blah, blah, my husband suggested to go to a Mexican restaurant in Seattle, Barrio. We finally got going to lunch at 1:30 pm.
Chips & salsa doesn't come to the table "free", which was good, since I am not eating carbs. Of course, the menu looked GREAT! When I get into Phase II, I am going back for more. OK, I ordered the Chopped salad and Pozole. I asked if they could keep the corn out of the salad. A little hard to keep the hominy out of the Pozole, so I just waited for the food to come. John ordered guacamole which came with tortilla chips and a Modelo Negro (beer). I used the chips as a tool to get the guacamole from the bowl to my mouth...delicious. No beer for me, just water.
John & Tyler got tacos with chorizo and flank steak served with rice and drunken beans. My salad was good, chunks of avocado and toasted pumpkin seeds. The pozole, if I wasn't on the South Beach Diet, would have been awesome. I couldn't get around the hominy, a couple might have accidentally gone down my throat. Dessert, dessert, DESSERT. I ordered french press decaf coffee. John & Tyler shared "Churros and Xocolati Chocolate". John said the churros were the best he's ever had. Hmmm. I dipped my finger in the chocolate, delicious. I am definitely going to go back to Barrio, however, I need to check my Phase II food list to see what I can get.
