San Angel Inn Lunch

For lunch on my arrival day, I met up with Rachel (rachel09985) and Beth (Couchy) at Epcot’s…

 

 

 

We were seated at a table next to the water, with a great view of the pyramid and volcano…

 

 

I of course had to start with an…


Avocado Margarita
El Mayor premium silver Tequila, melon liqueur, fresh avocado, agave nectar and fresh lime juice, served frozen with a hibiscus Himalayan salt rim

Though not listed on their menu, I had learned from Brenda that you could still request for one to be brought over from La Cava de Tequila. (Thanks for that great tip, Brenda! :thumbsup2)

And we were given chips and salsa…

 

Since I wasn’t very hungry I got only an appetizer as my entrée…


Tostados de Tinga
Pulled chicken seasoned with roasted tomato and chipotle, served on tostadas with black refried beans, green tomatillo sauce, queso fresco, and sour cream

I absolutely love these and get them every time I dine at San Angel Inn. Once again they did not disappoint!  :thumbsup2

 

As for my two dining companions, Beth really enjoyed her entree…

 

Pollo a las Rajas – Grilled chicken breast served with red peppers and onion cream sauce, poblano rice and queso fresco

 

And Rachel decided to have the traditional Mexican lunch:

Traditional Mexican Lunch $28.00

Sopa Azteca – traditional tortilla soup

Enchiladas Verdes de Pollo – Corn tortillas filled with pulled chicken, covered with green tomatillo sauce

Crema Bavaria – creamy Bavarian mousse served with mixed berries, cinnamon and orange liqueur

Includes soft drink or iced tea. No substitutions on the Mexican lunch.

 
Sorry no photo of the tortilla soup but Rachel said this was very good. The broth was “tomatoey” and thin! It was good though. She loved the thick tortilla strips and the avocado!

Rachel’s entree:

Enchiladas Verdes de Pollo – Corn tortillas filled with pulled chicken, covered with green tomatillo sauce, served with rice and refried beans

Rachel said this was good but not any better than her local Mexican restaurant. She did enjoy it though with the exception of the rice. It was sooo hard that she couldn’t eat the rice! The beans were decent though. Her favorite part of this dish was the tomatillo sauce.

Then for dessert she had the Bavarian mousse…

Rachel said, “This was SOOOO good! I loved this mousse. It was so creamy but still light at the same time. I loved the berries with the mousse. I also loved the cinnamon. I am a big cinnamon lover and the cinnamon was very prevalent throughout the entire mousse. The orange liqueur wasn’t too noticeable.”
