Chicken enchiladas – La Tortilla

Project 365: Day 116

Oi vey, it was another difficult morning, lol! Last night, we had gone to my “cousin” Kris’ apartment to celebrate his birthday with some of his friends. Then we headed to Soho and went to several bars – I remember Ku Bar and Lo-Profile. 🙂 A couple of D’s friends met us out and we ended up at one of their apartments and doing more shots, ouch! It was a great night.

D went into full-on tour guide mode today and we walked around central London to see many of the touristy sites: Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, St. Margaret’s Church, Trafalgar Square, National Portrait Gallery, Hungerford Bridge, London Eye, Westminster Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Millennium Bridge, Tate Modern, and Shakespeare’s Globe Theater. PHEW, that was a lot of walking and Tube riding! Even though it was rainy and dreary most of the day, I have to say that I LOVE London!

We also got to meet D’s boyfriend Alex who was really cool. Tonight we’re gonna head to a restaurant closer to D’s place. He lives in north London near Burnt Oak Station on the Northern Line.

Mmm, chicken enchiladas are my favorite! This one at La Tortilla is ok, but I do like their (limited) salsa bar so I can get more to put on top!

Chicken enchilada – Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant

One chicken enchilada topped with plenty of enchilada sauce and cheese. Served with rice, refried beans, salad, and corn tortilla. $8.95
Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant, San Francisco

Now this was good! I loved the enchilada sauce. It was dark and rich and very mole tasting. The refried beans were also delicious as was the rice. I only order the single enchilada and I’m glad I did because you get a lot of food. It also came with a side salad and a corn tortilla. Add all you can eat chips and salsa and you’ve got a filling meal! Noms!

Side salad Tommy's Mexican Restaurant

Side salad of lettuce, carrots, cucumber, radish and salsa. Complimentary.

One carne asada (grilled beef) and one pollo (grilled chicken) wrapped in corn tortillas and topped with enchilada sauce and white cheese. Served Mexican rice, refried beans, lettuce, sour cream and guacamole.
Taqueria San Jose, San Francisco

Omg, SO good! This plate totally hit the spot and it was pretty big! I also loved their refried beans, nice and rich and flavorful. You can definitely taste the fatty goodness in them. I would order this again in a heartbeat!

Sangria Taqueria San Jose

Sangria. I’ve never had sangria in a paper cup, but the nice girl at the counter told us that you get way more sangria in the paper cups versus their wine glasses and you get charged the same price. Score! And they tasted pretty good, too!
