I’m pretty sure it’s a general rule if your boss invites you out to lunch you have to accept, right?
At least that’s the thought that went through my head when the VP of marketing extended an invitation to join her for a bite to eat. I mean, who am I to turn down the VP? When she says jump – I say how high. 😉
Truth is I had this amazing lunch planned out in my head involving roasted figs and arugula that had me drooling most of the morning. Plus, I am a little burnt out on going out, but when she mentioned Mexican and the term ‘lunch meeting’ I couldn’t say no. I guess now I have an amazing dinner to look forward to. :)
We ended up at PR Tacos, which is a really great hole in the wall Mexican place down the street from our office.
I honestly can’t believe I’ve never been here before. The place was covered in signatures from thousands of customers over its 30 years in business and had a great hole in the wall charm to it that immediately made me think of my dad and how much he would love this place. Dad- next time you’re in town for lunch we’re heading here!
The food wasn’t bad either!
The table started with chips and salsa.
I’m not a big chip fan, but I had two hot chips with the medium salsa.
The menu was typical Mexican fare with a few twists thrown in. I was the most interested in the veggie options and how every menu item had the choice of containing chicken, beef, or veggies. When I asked the waitress what their veggies consisted of I was pleasantly surprised to hear the terms broccoli & cauliflower as opposed to the typical peppers and onions you find at more Mexican restaurants.
I ended up ordering the lunch combination with black beans & rice, veggie enchilada, and a veggie taco.
Everything was perfectly portioned and tasted fantastic. The veggies were right on target – plentiful and green. My one gripe was how cheese covered everything on the plate. Next time I would ask for no cheese on the enchilada or on the black beans. Besides that, I can’t wait to return.
Earlier in the morning I snacked on a Peach.
