Restaurant Roundup:Mexican restaurants I've visited since the last roundup that I already have reviews up for include Taco Rosa, Azteca's, Taco Factory, Javier's, and Taleo Mexican Grill. Each one of these may still get a review here again but sometimes I have to go to a place and just eat and not review.
Azteca's Takeout - Chicken Mole Enchiladas
Non-Mexican restaurants I've been to since the last roundup include, but are not limited to, Kabuki (yes, Kabuki . . . again), Lee's Sandwiches, Cento & Fanti, Ruby Palace, Lotus Chinese Eatery, Crescent City Beignets, Wasabi, Pei Wei Asian Diner, King's Hawaiian (da Local Place dis time), Club 33, and Lucca Cafe.
Updated entries:I've updated the Salsa Extravaganza and Salad Wars entries.
I recently found out there is a place in Texas called Speedy Gonzalez Mexican Food. Does anybody know more about this? Do they use the actual Warner Bros. character in their brand identity? There's also a Taco Cart in NYC with Speedy on the sombrero. Speaking of Speedy Gonzales, there is also a site that imagines a Grudge Match between him and the Taco Bell chihuahua. Is there any doubt who would win?
