Las Teresitas, what a glorious hole in the wall, located at the 34th avenue north exit off of Crosstown Highway 62. LT is a gem which you won’t just happen to drive by if it’s not on your agenda. My long time great friend, Michael Smith (Smitty), and I recently enjoyed a feast of authenticity at LT, with one special dish which can’t be duplicated. Yes they serve tacos, burritos and enchiladas and not like that chain with the tiny talking chihuahua, and it’s what else they create in their kitchen that will astound! #46 Molcajete Mexicano, served in a screaming hot stone bowl that’s larger than Smitty’s head, this menu feature is designed to serve 2-3. The bowl is filled with marinated and grilled chicken breast, steak and pulled pork, along with Mexican sausage. Then rice and beans are added along with whole grilled jalapeños and whole grilled onions. Finally, it’s topped with halved avocados, grilled cactus leaves, ranchero cheese and cilantro. I have eaten at dozens of Mexican restaurants throughout MN, FL, CO and South of the Border, some are good and a few have been great but none have #46 on their menu. The balance LT’s offerings are great with 14 varieties of platters, appetizers, combos and even breakfast options, and they even have a salsa bar with a dozen of their homemade delights. Get your Gringo out and sample LT’s favorites, bring friends and order #46!
Bill’s Beverage of the Month
Zeelander by Toppling Goliath – Single Hop IPA- 5.5% ABV, 80 IBUs. Notes from the brewers website: “This zeelicious single hop IPA showcases the rare Nelson Sauvin hop from New Zealand. Delightfully confusing aromas of citrus and mandarin oranges give way to an incredibly complex body of earth tones and marigolds. This is truly unlike any hop you’ve ever tasted.”
“ZeeLander is part of the TG Hop Patrol Series of aggressively hopped IPAs that showcase individual hop varieties and complex blends.”
