Food Fiesta

in All Posts

I had THE most satisfying dinner tonight.  It’s been months since I’ve had Mexican… in fact, since *before* the blog! I will never go this long without Mexican food again!]


To hold me over in between lunch + dinner, I snacked on a small orange + a random handful of almonds.


OK — onto dinner… this place is a-maz-ing!


I got there before Meghann and had a beer while I waited.


Plus I attacked these delicious, salty, crunchy chips and salsa!


Meghann and I gossiped the night away, as usual.  We finally had to choose our meals, and I went right for the Verde Chicken Enchiladas.


Um, the 3 enchiladas were totally smothered in sour cream!! I totally pushed off 90% of topping, and it was still delicious.  The whole thing would’ve been a little overwhelming.

Beer number 2!


I really need to go get Mexican food more often! Again, it was just such a great meal.


What’s your favorite type of ethnic food?

  • Mica February 19, 2009, 7:22 pm

    I love Indian food, so much so that I worked at an Indian restaurant in college.

    …Now, I’m getting into Korean though. We shall see if my tastes shift.

    That said, Mexican is always delicious, especially chips and salsa!

  • Brandi February 19, 2009, 7:26 pm

    I love Modelo! Good beer choice 🙂

    I like Mexican and Thai the best, probably

  • Ryan (chasing daylight) February 19, 2009, 7:26 pm

    I LOVE mexican food! I think I had it at least once a day in HS and in college:)

  • jaimejoy February 19, 2009, 7:39 pm

    Being a vegetarian, Thai and Indian are most accomadating AND delicious! Less accomadating but another favorite-Greek!

  • talieworld February 19, 2009, 7:44 pm


    My favorite mine have to be Chinese. 🙂

  • Amanda February 19, 2009, 7:48 pm

    I LOVE Vietnamese food!! They have awesome rice paper rolls (healthy spring rolls in those see through wrappers) and the most amazing peanut sauce!!

  • Anonymous February 19, 2009, 8:09 pm

  • Nicole ( February 19, 2009, 8:10 pm

    I love the picture of Meghann being a food blogger!

    Hmmm, I can’t decide. I like all food!

  • Hallie February 19, 2009, 8:24 pm

    Even though I’m a picky eater, I LOVE most ethnic food. Isn’t that weird? I love Mexican, Thai, Japanese, Vietnamese, Middle Eastern, Filipino, Spanish…pretty much everything from a country outside the US! I don’t even know if I could pick a favorite, Thai perhaps.

  • Victoria February 19, 2009, 8:30 pm

    Mine is without a doubt Japanese, but Mexican just totally hits the spot sometimes!

  • Madeline February 19, 2009, 8:46 pm

    I’ve been reading your blog for a few weeks and feel so inspired by your dedication to running and healthy eating. As a college student, it’s sometimes hard for me to avoid stress eating and running across the street for a pint of Ben and Jerry’s!

    Is the contest for the Run ID still going on?

  • redheadedjournal February 19, 2009, 8:46 pm

    I love Thai food!

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point February 19, 2009, 8:50 pm

    madeline – thank you!!! yes, the contest is still going on until 8 AM tomorrow. put a comment on the road ID post to enter!

  • elise February 19, 2009, 8:55 pm

    indian or thai…its hard to choose, i love them both!

  • Heather McD (Heather Eats Almond Butter) February 19, 2009, 8:57 pm

    Caitlin – that is waaaay too long to go without Mexican as it is my favorite! I’m also a big fan of Ethiopian.

  • Sarah (lovINmytummy) February 19, 2009, 9:08 pm

    1. Greek
    2. Indian
    3. Lovinmytummyian

  • Laura February 19, 2009, 9:16 pm

    Mexican food is so good!

    I am totally in love with Persian rice, but rarely have it.

  • Bec February 19, 2009, 10:37 pm

    Indian is probably my favorite but Mexican is a close second!

  • One Healthy Apple February 19, 2009, 11:49 pm

    I love Ethiopian and Russian (mostly Russian desserts)!

  • Thinspired February 20, 2009, 3:36 am

    I love Negra Modelo beer! 🙂
    I also love Chinese and Japanese food!

  • imadedinner February 20, 2009, 5:10 am

    Japanese food is my fave hands down, though my first date with my now-fiance was at a Mexican place!

  • ksgoodeats February 20, 2009, 5:46 am

    ANY kind of Mediterranean food! Falafel, pita, hummus, yum!

  • lauren February 20, 2009, 7:36 am

    yummm…mexican. I would say mexican and japanese and indian and italian and…ummm yeah – i like ALL food. 🙂

  • Amisha February 20, 2009, 8:27 am

    Indian, followed by mexican. YUM. Your enchiladas look so good, but that sour cream is gross. I always ask for no sour cream because I can’t stand it. It just gets in the way of the awesomeness of the red or green sauce.

  • HangryPants February 20, 2009, 9:01 am

    I’ve never actually had an ethnic food I didn’t like, but I’ve never had fun or interesting things like Ethiopian or Vietnamese.

  • TinaGirl February 20, 2009, 9:43 am

    absolutely without a doubt mexican food. We have so many great resturants here in California. I do have a thing for Thai food but the rest of the family does not. So I try to make plans with the girly friends to enjoy that every few months.

  • eatingRD February 20, 2009, 10:36 am

    This is a great question because I LOVE ethnic foods and trying different cuisines! I’ve posted some attempts at different greek favs. I would have to say my ultimo favorite is good ol’ american Italian food (which isn’t too ethnic, but) Second my fav is Greek and Mediterranean food. They have so many wonderful spices and everything has such fresh flavor. Yum!

  • Wendy February 20, 2009, 11:55 am

    Mexican is/always will be my number one! I could eat it every day!!!

  • Sarah February 20, 2009, 2:13 pm

    Love Mexican food! We eat it several times a week here in Texas. I’m also a huge fan of Thai food.
