I've Been Unfaithful

There's this one I've known for several years now, but now there's this new, exciting one around, and I haven't been faithful to the old one.

Don't worry, my marriage isn't in trouble. I'm talking about Mexican restaurants.

For several years now, I've been going to La Carreta Mexican Restaurant. It's kinda like my Cheer's. All the waiters know my name, my dad and brother, and have witnessed a lot of my dates with my husband. We speak Spanish together, complain about my fellow American diners who tell them that they don't serve "real" guacamole, and I give every day business advice. When I call in to-go orders, the waiters always know it's me. The only problem is, their food isn't always delicious these days.

I heard a few weeks ago that there is a new Mexican restaurant in town, El Paso Mexican Restaurant. I was intruiged, but I didn't really want to go at first. It just felt kind wrong. But I broke down and went with the esposo one night. The atmosphere is very cool. It is more chic and classy than corny, stereotypical Mexican. And most of the food I've tried is very good. I normally like something a little more "authentic" than quesadillas, but their quesadillas con pollo are to die for.

So after a 2-3 week absence at La Carreta, I just went to pick up supper. The waiters were asking about my job, Christmas, and asking where my brother is since it's been a while since he was in. And to add to my guilty conscience, supper was so good.

I think I'm going to continue two-timing my fave Mexican restaurant. If I were Catholic, I'd probably have to go to confession over this.

Business is business and I say go to where the delicious food is served! Perhaps there is dessert at the first favorite?
