I set a goal at the beginning of 2023 to visit one “new-to-me” Mexican restaurant each month. These restaurants have been around for years, but for some reason, I’ve never visited. 5 Rabanitos is number three on the list.
I must say, the hubby and I were greedy and tried a few items! Everything was spectacular. The portion size is nice, so I had a few leftovers. On the menu we tried:
- Taquitos Ahogados
- Pork Belly Chorizo Taco
- Green Chicken Tamale
- Carne Asade Taco Dinner
- Crispy Chicken Milanesa with Garlic Mash Potatoes
You could taste the passion in the food. Everything I tasted felt like a nice warm hug. My tastebuds were very happy!
If visiting on the weekends, I highly recommend making reservations. We went during the weeknight with reservations, and the seats were filling up pretty quickly.
