Steak Tacos at Tacos and Tequila
,

Sometimes we go away to have good food, to be removed from the stress of life, to celebrate, or to take a second to take it all in. To do all of the above, I escaped to Cancun for almost a week, life still followed me there but I knew going to Cancun would make it alright. Though I was disappointed with many of the flavors or lack there of, I came across some great food experiences  as well and I plan to share them all. First stop was Tacos and Tequila which is in the hotel zone of Cancun inside the outdoor Mall titled La Isla.

They had Wi-Fi there and my need to connect with back home was enough for me to order this huge margarita with chili powder on the rim. The flavor of the powder is really difficult to describe because it tasted familiar but I knew it was a stranger to my taste buds. The kick was very light and it was sweet as well, something that the locals apparently have here often. My waiter even gave me some to go since I was so intrigued but that wasn’t getting past customs. The Mango margarita was not exactly the frozen drink I was expecting but it didn’t matter because it was pretty good and if I can’t taste the tequila then you can be my friend.

I went for an order here which consist of three tacos of your choice and a side. I opted for the Mexican rice which was bland but I also tried the cactus for fun. I never heard of cactus on a menu and my waiter agreed to bring some out for me. The cactus was bitter and tasted like a string bean almost. I couldn’t believe people were eating cactus tacos; this thing needed some pepper or something.

The shrimp tacos caught my eye, as well as the pork and the steak. They poured onions into the shrimp and the pork, which I had to handpick out. I can’t stand onions but I will tolerate them. Unfortunately, I wasn’t going to tolerate a whole tablespoon of them. The shrimp needed something to accompany them in the taco to truly make it filling, like some guacamole. Instead I ate them alone because the wrap did nothing for them.

The Pork was my favorite out of the three just because it sucked the least and actually had some spices to it. I filled this one with the rice to add to the texture and it worked out well.

The steak was filled with chorizo, which really made it tolerable, but still not impressed. I was under the impression that I was in Taco heaven and so far that hadn’t seemed to be the case.

Happy MLK Day!

I’ve been away on a Royal Caribbean Cruise for vacation and I’ve used the rest of my free time during my return eating my heart out… what’s new?

For me, there are few greater feelings like landing in a city or place you aren’t familiar with and trying new things. So for my birthday,  I booked a cruise to the Bahamas, making a short stop in Miami. All Inclusive meals? Sounds like my kind of trip. Every morning for breakfast, we headed to the buffet where I would get two to three plates full of food.

All day long they hosted bars by the pool and drinks on drinks were served. The best part of it all was that at 9pm every night, we got all dressed up for dinner where we were served by a woman who had to be the best waitress on the Royal Caribbean Cruise ship. There’s nothing like a pleasant service and menu options that changed every night!

When I was in the Bahamas, I was extremely anxious to try the local food and I was granted the opportunity to try Conch (pronounced Konk) Fritters for the first time. They were so delicious, I wish I could had more days to spend there eating.

On our last night, which was my birthday, I had to have the Surf and Turf which was a little extra and completely worth it. We were all beyond full but aside from the sight seeing, excursions, pool fun, and the awesome moments never to be forgotten, the food was more than I could have hoped for.
