Here's a nice little place tucked away in the Newport Hills Shopping Center and I didn't even realize they had Mexican items on their menu until recently. In fact they have a whole section of Mexican items for breakfast and another whole bunch for lunch or dinner.
On Monday from the "PM Ole" menu I tried the Grilled Vegetable Quesadilla stuffed with "Pepperjack Cheese, Zucchini, Yellow Squash and Sweet Bell Peppers." I liked that the quesadilla was not greasy on the outside, making it easy to pick up and eat. Good blend of flavors inside and the green tomatillo/avocado sauce helped.
Early this morning I tried out the interesting sounding Breakfast Potato Nachos, made with "Red Rose Potatoes Smothered in Cheddar Cheese, Pico de Gallo, Avocado and Sour Cream." This is the first time I've ever heard of breakfast nachos so when I find something unusual like this I have to try it out. This really is nachos with fried up potato slices in place of corn chips. Overall I enjoyed it but wish they could've followed the quesadilla's lead and made the potatos a little less greasy.
Both entrees were $7.95 and the Sunkist protein drink thing I got each time was $3.85. Slightly pricy, but when the opportunity presents itself I'll be trying more of Pacific Whey's Mexican items. And they have lots of good bakery items too that I've tried before.
