San Angel Inn Lunch

We spent the last day of our trip at Epcot and had lunch at a long-time family favorite, Mexico’s…

We scored one of the prime tables next to the water with a great view of the volcano… :woohoo:

Here’s their lunch menu as of May 21, 2015…

The girls and I started with a margarita…

Note that my favorite avocado margarita is back on the menu. :thumbsup2 The last couple of times that I’ve been to SAI it was not on the menu so I had to make a special request for it. The restaurant’s manager then had to walk over to La Cava for it and personally deliver the margarita to my table. I’m sure this was a pain for him, but it sure made me happy to have one of my WDW favorite drinks…and with a 20% TIW discount, which you can’t get at La Cava de Tequila or La Hacienda de San Angel. :thumbsup2

So obviously I had the Avocado margarita, as did Allison. But Emily ordered a different one, the Wild Passion Fruit…

Avocado Margarita – Tequila Casa Noble Blanco, Melon Liqueur, fresh Avocado, Agave Nectar, and fresh Lime Juice, served frozen with a hibiscus Himalayan salt rim
Wild Passion Fruit – Passion Fruit Puree, Ginger Liquor, Tequila, Mango Nectar, fresh Lime Juice, topped with mango foam, served on the rocks with a Tajin chili powder rim

For those who have never tried the avocado margarita, don’t be put off by the thought of drinking liquid avocado. To me (and most everyone else who’s tasted this) it tastes nothing like avocado. Instead it tastes more like melon with a hint of banana perhaps??? :scratchin It’s sweet, creamy and so delicious! Definitely worthy of the 5 rating it received from both Allison and me. Emily though was disappointed with her choice, the Wild Passion Fruit. She rated it only a 3.

We munched on the complimentary chips and salsas (one red, one green) while we waited on our food…

Next came our appetizer, shared by Andrew, Emily, and me…

Tostadas de Tinga – Pulled Chicken seasoned with roasted tomato and chipotle pepper, served on tostadas with black refried beans, green tomatillo sauce, queso fresco, and sour cream

A close up…

I love these chicken tostadas! The chicken is always perfectly seasoned and so moist and delicious. The kids also really enjoyed these. We all rated them a 5, including Allison who got an order of her own as her entree.

For his entree, Andrew chose what I had originally planned to order…

[IMG]

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

He enjoyed this and rated it a 4. Probably would have given it a 5 if the sauce didn’t have onions, which he doesn’t like. ;)

My Plan B was to order the chicken enchiladas but then Emily ordered those…

[IMG]

Enchiladas Verdes de Pollo – Corn Tortillas filled with pulled chicken, covered with green tomatillo sauce, topped with sour cream, queso fresco and onions, served with black refried beans

She loved her entree and gave it a perfect rating of 5. :thumbsup2

So I had to quickly come up with a Plan C. I first considered the snapper, but then changed my mind and ordered the…

And a close up...

Tacos de Carne – Grilled New York strip on flour tortillas, topped with chipotle pepper sauce, scallions, and avocado, Served with rice and beans.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this. When it comes to tacos, I generally prefer chicken or shrimp but the steak in these tacos was of a good quality. It was lean, tender and well seasoned. Combined with the rice and refried beans (both good), I gave this entree a 5.

We were all too full for dessert but I did get a photo of the dessert options here…

And one more pic of my happily full kids…

So this was nearly a perfect meal of 5’s, with only the Passion Fruit margarita and my son’s chicken entree receiving a lesser rating. San Angel Inn turned out to be a great choice for lunch on the final day of our trip. :thumbsup2
