After trying for about 3 months, Pedro and I finally were able to get together. My knee was even cooperating, so we went up to Albany Park. Our first stop was the Supermercado Lindo Michoacan, where I wanted to check out their baked goods.
We passed their boxed cookies, which were interesting since they were not brands we usually see in stores like Jewel or Dominicks.
I was on a hunt for churros, and there were none on the trays. There were some chocolate donuts which apparently are big sellers, judging from the quantity that were already gone.
It was difficult to browse because the line going to the meat department traversed completely across the distance of the store and went as far as down the produce aisle, so we kept our trip there relatively short, and moved over to Lindo Michoacan Restaurant.
One of the things I love about Mexican Restaurants is that most offer fresh juices. I ordered a cantaloupe juice, which came in a very large glass. It was delicious, and just what I needed.
For lunch, Pedro ordered enchilada suizas and an horchata. He said the enchiladas were very good.
A good friend of mine mentioned having some great Red Snapper, and it had been awhile since I ordered this. Their menu included two types, which included either the Vera Cruz or the Ajo (garlic). I opted for the Huachinango con Ajos. It was very good; next time I’ll go for the Vera Cruz for variety. The food was great for both of us, as was the service. The only thing we had a problem with was that the music was so loud we couldn’t really talk.
