These JSS Bee gals really know how to eat. I think we’ve already proven that over and over again on this blog. And apparently we know how to find great new restaurants too.
Lani came to town!
This is Lani and Judy at the restaurant tonight. I am really glad I took this picture so I could tell you what the name of the restaurant is. The Yucatan Taco Stand! It says so on the wall right behind them.
Lani is a JSS Bee member who recently moved to New York City on a great adventure with her dear hubby. They will be in NYC for about two years. We absolutely, positively refuse to let her stay there longer than that. And Lani is blogging about her experiences in big city life. We thought Dallas was a big city! Maybe – but NYC is very different. And we actually want Lani to stay there long enough so that we all have an opportunity to go and visit. At least I know I do! If you’d like to read about Lani’s adventures in New York, check out her blog, Lani’s Lyric-al Blog.
And now…… on to the important stuff…… the food!
This was the tortilla soup that Lani ate. And we actually thought the shape of the bowl was really very cool. We are highly entertained by the simple things.
Karen and I shared these nachos. There was enough for Judy and Lani to share them too. Do you think they could have piled them any taller? And they only cost $8 – a bargain when you consider that four people ate them! Karen and I were happy to share. We were saving room for dessert. (Notice Lani’s very cool bowl just to the right and behind the nachos. Again…. easily entertained we are. And apparently I just turned into Yoda from Star Wars.)
One of the gals had this to drink. I don’t even remember what it was called, but it sure was pretty! And she said it was pretty tasty too.
Even the kids’ meals were really well presented. I believe this is an enchilada with rice and pico de gallo. We had a couple of cute little girls with us for dinner. They were old friends who hadn’t seen each other in a long time. They were excited to be reunited!
Meet Grace and Peyton. Aren’t they just the cutest little things? And very photogenic too! When I told them they were going to be on my blog, they were even more excited. Do you think they even know what a blog is? Maybe. I think the kids are better informed about these things than we are. But maybe these gals were just a little too young to know all the latest internet jargon. One of them asked me later when they would be in the catalog!
And perhaps this is their true selves coming to the surface? Cute, nonetheless…..
And this was dessert. It was very decadent. They called it Deep Fried Cheesecake. For those of you who have had Karen’s Cinnamon Cream Cheese Thingie (what exactly do we call it, Karen?) – this was similar, only deep fried. With a big mountain of whipped cream on the side. And aren’t the drizzles on the plate pretty too? They brought us four spoons, but Karen and I just picked up a spoon in each hand and attacked the plate. It was a good thing none of the other ladies got in the way of the spoons.
And this is what the plate looked like exactly 19 seconds later when Judy came from the other end of the table to get a bite. Sorry, Judy! Karen and I don’t let any grass grow under our spoons when it comes to chowing down the dessert. Maybe we can go to this place again next week? We’ll share our dessert. Honest we will, Judy.
But you gotta be quick.
Still savoring the Deep Fried Cheesecake,
