Oh hey there my neglected friends of the fridge!
First things first, a very happy holiday season to all of you - please don't be mad about my absenteeism.. here's to more empty fridge action in 2012. Its been a busy fiesta season but lets hit the ground running shall we? And what better way to do it then in typical and true Empty Fridge style with
DEEP FRIED BURRITOS
For anyone that enjoys a little viva la mexico in their life, then man have I got the place for you! I first came across this little pocket on Victoria road Gladesville while I was stuck in life sucking traffic. There he was, a jolly man - donning a poncho and shaking his hips to the strums of his own guitar. There and then in the life sucking traffic of Victoria Road, I knew I had to visit Dos Senoritas.
What perfect excuse for fiesta time then a burrito throwdown with Demos and our favourite fiesta buddy the Goose Man (long story short..the name came from the numerous sessions we've had emptying bottles of Grey Goose) Since we all lived within a 2km radius from Dos Senoritas, the three of us were keen to engage in some sillyness with the option of stumbling home.
After the complimentary corn chips and salsa are rolled out and line our stomachs we were keen on throwing a couple down. My margarita ($12) was strong, salty and sour..definitely emphasising the strong part and their generosity with the tequilla and thats coming from me! But there were burritos to be had, and I had to limber up. The boys refused to partake in margarita madness and drink from girly glasses settled on some local mexican cerveza - bottles of Pacifico at $8
Dos Senoritas claim to be the only authentic Mexican food in Sydney, pretty heavy call right? But I'm on their side in this one. This restaurant is very casual, colourful and fun..no air of "cool-ness" and just straight up Guadalajara-n heart. The menu covers all the mexican dishes we Sydney-siders have grown to love during this recent mexican cuisine explosion..Taquitos, Quesadillas, Enchilladas, Guacamole..The "specialties" section of the menu however is where the real excitement is.. its where the real mexican dishes like Mole (the green Poblano kind and the Dark Chocolate Oaxaca kind) and Tamales are listed.
Hello, Guadalajara indeed!
Considering all the choice we had..(there are a whopping 8 varieties of burritos on the menu) we did something never seen in the history of The Empty Fridge. I would go as far as saying that this breaks the main rule of food blogging, but hey - the three of us ordered the same dish despite all the choice. Why?
Yes, that was the name of the game. How can you chose anything else (despite every item on the menu being so damn tempting) when the supercheesygoeychimichanga was up for selection. And THREE supercheesy's it was ($23 each). These were deep fried burritos with Pork Chille Verde, Jack and Cheddar Cheeses all wrapped up in a flour tortilla topped with jalapeno cream cheese and more jack and cheddar. To add to that, there was also mexican rice and beans on the side.
The beauty/beast of Dos Senoritas is that you can get any of the other burritos on the menu "chimi" style -- which means, you guessed it - Deep Fried. Burrito flavoured kisses all the way.
Our corn chips were topped up throughout our meal as we battled each of our burritos. The tangy salsa provided some fresh respite from the creamy richness of the supercheesy.. we were loosing a batte of epic burrito proportions.
Yep..thats the white flag of surrender, signalling defeat in the hands of the supercheesy. We had the dreaded burrito sweats and unfortunately it was the end for us.Let the record show however that yours truly won against the margarita.
So if its an Authentic Mexican fiesta you are craving, get your pretty culo's down to Dos Senoritas for some genuine good times.. who knows, you may even find yourself standing roadside - singing and swinging those hips to your own spanish party song..or even some cervesa showers. Arriba x 100. On a seperate note, No empty fridgers were harmed in this post..we actually walked home that night
