For M.'s birthday dinner, we went to Margarita's, our neighborhood Mexican chain restaurant. God knows why, alcohol may have influenced that decision.
M had fried jalapeno poppers (which were really tortillas stuffed with jalapeno cream cheese) and queso dip as his entrée. Really. It's as if a 12-year-old was allowed to order his own dinner. What can I say though, the man loves cheese.
I tried the fish tacos, which were all right. The fish was a little dry and over seasoned. There was, however, a good amount of veggies on my tacos, and I particularly enjoyed the roasted corn. All in all, Margarita's doesn't get my recommendation for good Mexi. food in Portland. And if it's a good 'rita you're after, you should head down the hill to Amigo's.
