How To Find New Mexican Food Restaurants

May 3, 2008
When the time comes to spend a night out on the town, chances are good you want the experience to be a good one. Knowing before hand where you will be going, how much money you will spend, and what to expect will go a long way in insuring your evening out with a loved one or a business partner is going to meet your expectations.

Finding a favorite, new Mexican food restaurant is not generally something you want to do for a special evening. That is why you will need to make preparations!

Exploring the new Mexican food restaurant down the street may be a great way to spend the afternoon. Stop in for lunch and really appreciate everything the establishment offers. Does the establishment meet with your expectations?

One of the things I always look for when I visit one of the new Mexican food restaurants is the quality of he chips. Personally, I like my tortilla chips warm, fresh, firm, and only lightly salted if salt is present. The chips are one of the first thing you will experience in this establishment. You should be pleased with the presentation, the number of tortilla chips, and the quality of the tortilla chips.

Are the chips broken, old, stale, cold, or overly salty? If my first experience with this establishment leaves me wanting a bag of store bought tortilla chips, something is definitely wrong. That is generally the first sign I may need to find someplace else for my next important dinner date.

The next thing is none other than the salsa. This is a personal preference. Some people like extremely hot and spicy, some people like something milder and with a hint of sweetness. Many establishments will offer you a choice between spicy or mild. If this is not offered, ask. You may be surprised.

One thing I look for in the salsa is the quality of the ingredients. Regardless of what the ingredients actually are, they should be firm, fresh, and taste good separately. Personally, I do not like running salsa, but my husband loves his runny as he can get it! It is all about personal choices. The restaurant will have their own type and style of salsa, but again, if you think the store bought salsa is heaven comparatively, you may need to step away from the table and skedaddle.

The service should be exceptional and polite with fresh water, chips, and salsa brought without a long period of waiting. In addition, you will want to insure that the ingredients are fresh, and that the meal arrives in a timely fashion. The meal itself should be hot, and having the wait staff remind you of the burn factor is a nice addition.

When it comes time to find a new Mexican food restaurant, you will find you have a lot of options to choose from. Sometimes, you will find something great that meets or exceeds your expectations, but other times, you may want to remind yourself not all meals come from a box. Good cuisine coupled with good service is always a welcomed relief, and if you appreciate lunch, your next dinner date will be a pleasure.
