I have to admit that while I have had Lolita’s Breakfast Burito a few times in the past, often times the thought of Mexican food for breakfast was a little too much for me. Yet there is always a line at Lolita’s so I was intrigued to give it a try this past Saturday. When I explained that I wanted to write about her food, Delores, the owner, recommended the steak taco. While I waited patiently, I took advantage of the time to chat with the other customers in line. A young couple was thoroughly enjoying a Lolita’s Raspodo.
They explained that it was Mexican Shaved Ice and it was delicious! With a multitude of flavors including lime, strawberry, raspberry, coconut, cherry, hibiscus, tamarind, blueberry plus the option of endless combinations, it was the perfect drink for a hot day!
Another patron, Henry, told me he comes to the market, just to get his Lolita’s fix! Henry said I also had to try one of the fire roasted jalepeno peppers. I normally would have passed, but he insisted and I’m glad he did. After just a few more minutes, the wait was over.
I took a small bite of the pepper which seemed sweeter and not as hot as I expected and then tried a bite of the taco. I was delighted by the taste explosion in my mouth: avocado, cilantro, beef, cheddar cheese…..mmmmm
I know I’ll be back to Lolita’s booths at Houdini Plaza again soon!
