Last night I went to Castillo's Cafe. It was my 4th AARG experience. I had the pleasure of sitting next to Tamara Z again. We had some laughs about the illustrations on the menu. Tamara is good AARG company. My mother and I shared an order of the Crab Enchaldo. We were both excited to try it. It is one of our favorite family dishes and we wanted to see how it stacked up to my great grandfather's recipe. It was pretty good. It was a red sauce, kind of spicy, with chunks of crabmeat in it. I enjoyed it but when my 'papa' makes it he puts whole crabs in it so you get to shell the crabs and eat those too.I think Papa cooks his longer too, his is thicker and a little richer but Castillo's was good. Very good. It was really close in favor, a close second to my great grandpas. We also shared the black beans and yellow rice. It was very tasty. It was a traditional dish, exactly what I expected and very satisfying. The fried plantains were also very delicious. The whole meal was yum-mainia!
We also got a Flan Bonus! Awesome dessert on the house for the AARG! Yahoo!
I also got to handout 3 blog cards, like business cards. That was fun too.
