Dined here with the hubby and Tom and his wife.

We were able to get a list minute reservation on Open Table. This place is located in the hip new area of San Jose and you definitely get some good people watching if you ogtain a coveted outside table. We started with the tableside guacamole – mmmmm…  And Sangria for me. It was a pretty tasty beverage and I think I might have been able to thoroughly enjoy a pitchers worth with ease! Next hubby and I split the chicken Pipan – Chicken in a delicious green mole made with pumpkin seeds, tomatillos, nuts and spices. Super tastey. We also ordered up the fried plantains, and the Torta de elote – Savory corn bread, chile pasilla, onion, bacon with poblano pepper cream sauce

Of course I totally enjoyed the plantains – mmmmm…..  hang on, still savoring them….

We ended with chorros and some great conversation!

The only weird thing was that they had tortillas as opposed to chips so it did keep me from over eating, but it was not as fun or enjoyable with the guacamole.
