Hey, look who was spotted in Boston last night!
Mal and I ventured into the city to meet friends for dinner at Lolita and a photographer from Boston.com asked if she could snap our pic. Cool!
Lolita is located on Dartmouth Street just off Newbury, so I’ve walked by it a zillion times without ever really noticing it. It’s just a door with a menu next to it, so I’m glad our friends suggested it for dinner. I don’t think I would have dined there otherwise.
Inside was super dark!
We actually joked that we needed little reading lights to see the menu!
Our meal started with a complimentary palate cleanser of shaved ice and tequila. It was sort of like a tequila snow cone!
Then, tortilla chips and salsa/dips were served to our table.
When it came time to order drinks, I ordered a Spicy Cucumber margarita, which was awesome. I didn’t really taste cucumber, but it was definitely spicy! The spiciness actually made me cough a couple of times because it was so intense. I loved it! I guess it was basically a spicy, more refreshing margarita on the rocks.
As an appetizer, Mal and I shared the Queso Fundido, which was melted cheese with chorizo sausage, roasted poblano, mushrooms, and cilantro pesto. It was frickin’ amazing, and we chowed it down.
For our entrÃ©e, Mal and I shared an order of Crispy Shredded Pork and Smoked Pork Belly tacos. They were tasty, but not oh-my-God-delicious.
The Smoked Pork Belly tacos were basically thick-cut bacon with some slaw on top. I guess we were expecting tender pork belly instead of fried. Oh, well, we still ate them.
At the end of dinner, we all ordered another round of drinks, so I got a second Spicy Cucumber margarita. I only ended up drinking about half of it because 1) I didn’t think my colon would appreciate it and 2) because I really wanted to do this morning’s WOD and not feel crappy during it.
The ladies: Jenna, Kerri, and me!
The evening concluded with green apple-flavored cotton candy!
It was fun to eat and play with!
Cruise reunion! Good times!
