I knew that I'd be spending more than $50 though, which is one of the conditions that makes it worth it for companies to go the Groupon route, and so I didn't get around to this until my last week or so of living in NYC.
It was a cold day, and they took out coats from us. Then I realized that I had left my coupon and my Lactaid in my pocket, so I had to ask for it to be brought back to me. I tried rooting around in one pocket after another to find these things but wasn't having any luck, and so I eventually just started taking every item out one at a time, Mary Poppins style: gloves, keys, wallet, phone, pack of gum, matches, ah here we are.
After ordering the cheapest drink drinks available ($6 Negro Modelos), which I'd also actually enjoy and that might accompany my food nicely, we set out deciding how to get the most we could out of this menu for the least amount of money.
Our plan led to our ordering, for starters, the Plato Maya:
|-Chile Relleno chile poblano, shrimp, scallop, calamari, gouda cheese, black bean purée, chile de arbol sauce.||15.00|
|-Quesadilla Surtidas corn masa, oaxaca cheese, chile poblano rajas, zucchini, tomatillo and tomato salsas, crema fresca.||9.00|
|-Tamal Al Chipotle steamed corn masa, shredded chicken, sweet chipotle sauce, crema fresca, avocado, chive oil.||10.00|
And then we split the Mahi Mahi entree, or "Plato Fuerte" as the menu lists entrees.
|and the beans, with a sprinkle of cheese|
|Rice that comes with it|
I'll be in Texas in a week and a half. Hell yes.
