Viva Michoacan

My husband and I were on our way to eat at Outback Steakhouse (since it has been a while since we've had dinner there) when we passed Viva Michoacan Mexican Restaurant and decided to take a detour.
It's always fun to sit at the bar of any restaurant, in my opinion, but we passed up on it.
We were promptly seated at a booth and it must've been early for dinner because we were one of the few but not for long as other guests started to arrive. The mariachi band made an entrance to provide music for the evening. They played everything from La Cucaracha to La Bamba and Beseme Mucho, beautifully performed by the 3-man band.
The restaurant has a really big menu, it was hard for us to decide on what we wanted for dinner.
Margaritas are always a great start...LOL.
There's a quote on the back of these glasses, which I would love printed on a bumper sticker or tank top that says, "Save Water, Drink Margaritas".

Then our dinner came. Johnny ordered the Pollo Amador. YUM!!
I picked the Polla al Chipotle (Parangaricutirimicuaro). Say wha..???

The menu stated, "If you are "gringo" and can say this word without stopping you will win a free margarita or a tequila slamer." I've been practicing and it is pronounced, paran-gari-cutirimi-cuaro. Simply delicious; nice and spicy.
We left happy and satisfied. What a great evening and we were glad we took a detour.

I don't know if I can visit here anymore. lol (Joking) You keep showing me tasty food and I'm on a diet. :(

Daly said...'re too funny Rose. Well most of what I eat on a daily/weekly basis is really boring and I doubt anyone wants to see protein shakes or grilled chicken and fresh veggies. So when I do get to eat good food, I love taking photos so I can remember (and drool over) them. I definitely don't want to sabotage anyone's diet when I am being bad myself.
