    Ooh I would be all over that queso fundido, too! And the flan! Actually everything you had! 🙂

      Hi Jinxi – The queso fundido was so good with the fresh tortillas! I bet it’d also be good if you put some of the meats in it, but we ate all the cheese before the meats arrived!

  2. So many delicious meat choices… I wanna use those chips to make some carne asada tacos. 🙂

      Hi Soo! Oooo, I think that’d be a great idea! I’d want to pour that queso fundido all over the chips and make some super cheesy carne asado nachos myself!

    Great lunch menu! Will try it!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Those beans sound interesting. I don’t like mushy things and since those beans are whole, they are more appealing to me. Melted cheese makes everything better too! 🙂

      Hi CC – I generally don’t like beans either but I actually liked these and how once you started eating them, it felt really smooth instead of weird and mushy. Melted cheese is a beautiful thing! 😀

    That queso dish looks dreamy. I don’t think I’ve tried Guadalajara-style before. I love how everything is made to order – esp the tortillas. I think we drove by this restaurant last week when we were downtown. Will have to check them out soon.

      Hi Faye – It was really dreamy. I can imagine adding chorizo to it (though it’s excellent on its own). Definitely try the creamy extra dreamy flan if you visit! It is THE BEST.
