cabo san lucas, mexico : mi casa restaurant.

ah, the final post from mexico (we made it! 6 of 6) ... 

on our last night in cabo san lucas, we ended up at mi casa restaurant, where "they entice all the senses, not just the sense of taste." very. very. very true.

lots of bright colors ... lots of singing & other special performances ... lots of margaritas ... i can't really describe it ... it's more of a "you've gotta see it to believe it" situation.

the most major win of mi casa, you ask? delicious salad options. 

here's what i had ...  

la mixta de la huerta :
all ingredients from local, organic farms ... mixed lettuces & a grilled mix of zucchini, red onions, corn & colored bell peppers. topped w/ crunchy tortilla strips and pineapple-cilantro-jalapeno vinaigrette. no cotija cheese.
at this point in the trip, i was ready for a salad. and this one was super awesome. i loved it for so many reasons ... local, organic ingredients being the main one(s). everything really was sooo fresh. and the dressing was weird, but surprisingly good. yum.

mi casa does have a vegetarian menu ... but the items are almost entirely cheese based (i mean quesadillas, chiles rellenos, stuff like that), so nothing that can be vegan-ized. 

but that is a-okay. because the salad i had was perfect. easy & light ... just what i needed after a week of guacamole & fried chips. mmm.
