We recently visited San Angel Inn when out of town friends came to visit. I had never been but was open for anything! I had been inside the Mexican Pavilion many times and of course love the Grand Fiesta Tour with the Three Caballeros. I love the atmosphere as it feels like you are in small party town.
We started with the Sopa Azteca. The tortilla strips, avocado, cheese and peppers are brought in a dish and then have the soup poured over at your table. This was so fresh and so yummy, I would eat this every day! It’s not overly spicy but has just a hint of a kick.
For our entrée, we had the Carne Asada. This is a New York Strip, cooked to order with rice, guacamole, refried beans and a small enchilada. This is definitely a generous portion! There was definitely some heat to this dish but the guacamole cooled it down nicely. The meat was a tender as can be and the enchilada was a pleasant surprise.
Even after all that food, we went in for desert. My husband (Joe) and each got one and shared. We had the Crema Bavaria, which was so rich and decadent and the Mousse de Chocolate, which totally satisfied the urge for chocolate! Sharing is a strong word, you’ll want one of each for yourself!
So we left the restaurant full and happy and ended our trip to Mexico searching for Donald! Definitely give it a try and you won’t be disappointed. If I have one complaint it would be that the lighting is not great.
