So after 12 hours on the road from Houston, TX, I have finally rolled into Las Cruces, and I didn’t think that I would be on the mood to go out of the hotel room let alone eat anything. But I have found a little cafeteria style place called Spanish Kitchen.
I was pretty hungry, so I got a couple dishes.
Tamales in red sauce
Never had a tamale, must say, not bad, but nothing special. The tortilla is made from Mazas, filled with pork and cooked in a corn husk, and has a rustic taste to it. I had this topped with chile con carne and I think that the most striking thing about this was the texture. Everything was pulled or roughly cut into generous chunks which uncoils imagine being hand made in mothers kitchen.
Dinner # 5 (I think this is an authentic Mexican name meaning, “dinner #5″)
Yeah, I’m not funny all the time.
An enchilada, tamale, taco, and chile relleño stuffed with cheese. Again, nothing mind blowing about this dish, but a couple things I notices were the hand made tortillas as well as the hot pocket style on the chile. Again nothing special, just a nice presentation.
All in all, I was hoping for more of a mexican experience, but I’m still haven’t found a difference between this and Tex MexRead More
