Texas on my mind!

Mi Cocina has come to D.C. ladies and gentlemen! For those of you that don’t know what Mi Cocina is, it is a Dallas-based (that has most recently expanded to the Beltway) Tex-Mex restaurant. All of the dished served here are handmade from scratch using the finest and freshest ingredients. The food here is incredible and the frozen drinks even more so. 🙂

If there is one thing I would have to say D.C. lacks, it is good Tex-Mex. Thankfully Mi Cocina has decided to grace the district with its presence. It is conveniently located near the Friendship Heights metro in Chevy Chase.

A few of my Texas gal pals and I decided to end the week with a happy hour/dinner here earlier this evening. Best decision we could have made!

To start the night of right I ordered a Mambo Taxi, Mi Cocina's signature drink.  The classic frozen margarita featuring Sauza Blanco tequila with Mi Cocina house-made Sangria

The four of us noshed on chips, salsa and yummy queso while we decided what we wanted for dinner.

For dinner, I went with an oldie but goodie.

Sunset Beef Enchiladas. Two to an order served with Rice and Beans.

Happy (Texan) girls! For those that couldn’t make this trip, next time – there will be a next time. 🙂

So stuffed!

One thing that Mi Cocina does at this location (I don’t remember this at the Dallas locations), which can either be a good or bad thing depending on your mood and viewpoint, is they list the calorie count for everything on their menu. I can’t speak for the other ladies, but seeing how many calories I was consuming did influence my ordering decisions a little bit. For instance I decided to go with the 700 calorie enchilada dish, as opposed to a different 1100 calorie entrée…

If you have never been to a Mi Cocina restaurant before I strongly encourage you to go. If you have, go back!

Have a wonderful weekend!
