Last week, Mumra and I were driving around 28th street when we passed this little Mexican restaurant and decided to check it out.
Lindo Mexico Restaurant. It was at an odd hour on Monday, so not many people around…
Chips and salsa (mild & hot) were free! We ordered a small bowl of guac, and bean dip – refried beans with onions and cilantro on top. The beans are cooked with vegetable oil, but you’ll have to ask for no cheese to keep it vegan. If you’re a salt person, you may have to add salt to both the beans and guacamole. I did…I love salt.
The one in the foreground is mine, with a mild red sauce. Mumra’s in the background has the spicy green sauce, and is topped with onions and jalapenos. Once again, to keep it vegan ask for no cheese and no sour cream.
The burritos were really filling because of the rice. We added avocado to kind of replace the dairy, but it wasn’t necessary at all. The veggies inside were more traditional: carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini. They were nice and tender, the cauliflower was my favorite. The mild red sauce really was very mild, I ended up adding a little hot sauce. Adding a bit of the red salsa was good, too.
We liked everything about the place. Our waitress was very friendly and happy to answer questions about the menu, and make whatever changes we wanted. The prices were reasonable, the portions big enough for Mumra to bring leftovers home. I shamefully ate all my food even though I should’ve stopped halfway through the burrito.
Hopefully we’ll be back sometime for Happy Hour, or the Tuesday night drink special featuring a bucket of Coronas 🙂
