We had attempted to go a couple of previous times but the wait on First Friday is absolutely horrendous!
We went Saturday night on a whim! We figured if they are packed – back to the Ethiopian place!
We were in luck, we got to sit on the patio, be serenaded by Peruvian pipe players.
I had a Margarita – those bartenders are heavy handed! Woohoo!
We really liked the chips and salsa!
Hubby ordered the grilled chicken quesadilla.
I decided to be good and ordered the shrimp dish – then I could splurge and have flan for dinner.
Well… it was called camarones a la diabla
Said the sauce was extra hot, and came with rice, lettuce, tomato and a tortilla.
No biggie, nothing is usually too hot for me, and besides the rice can cool it down if need be.
The meal arrives – hubbies looks a little less than stellar, but ended up being really really good!
The chicken was on top of the quesadilla not inside…
Mine arrived, looked yummy! Waiter asked if I wanted a tortilla – I said, nah, more flan for my belly that way! Well… IT WAS HOT!!!! I started turning colors, had to drink all of hubbies water and even had to flag down the waiter for that tortilla!
It was just a smidge too hot for comfort which was unfortunate since it was really good.
Next time I’d get a side of plain rice since the rice that was with it was smothered in this sauce!
Hubby took a bit of the sauce to “spice” up his beans, he was feeling it!
So all in all – El Noa Noa is a fun place to go, the patio was lovely, although can be a bit noisy since it is right on the street! Salsa was excellent, I was tempted to get a bucket to go!
