NOTE: The Mexican has since closed.
There are so many great little places all over South Florida, it’s impossible to go to every single one. But McKenzie and I do get around, that’s for sure. Whether he’s introducing me to one of his favorite local hidden gems, or I pick a place that’s been recommended to me, we always have an awesome time whereever we go. The best part is that he constantly gets me to try different kinds of food and drink that I may not have tried on my own. As a food blogger, it’s pretty important to have an open mind and an even more open palette. He has helped to expand mine — especially in the drink category. Who knew I liked gin and bourbon? Well…only when mixed in some kind of crazy cocktail, but still… You get the point.
I recently went back there with my cousin Leah. This time I had the enchiladas del tierra with roasted mushrooms, caramelized onions, spinach and Mexican cheeses. Oh. My. God. Sooooo good. I tried one of their classic house margaritas and it was deeeelish. As I’ve said many times before, give me a good margarita and guacamole and I’m happy. Needless to say, both of my visits to The Mexican left me very happy.
