Mi Lindo Yucatan brief report

Last night I went with two friends to check out this place on Valencia and 15th in the Mission. For appetizers we had the Platillo Mi Lindo Yucatan, a spread of most of their appetizers (2 small each): Polcanes, Empanadas, Panuchos, Salbutes, Tamales, Flautas and Chilindritas. I can't say how these compare because Ive never had them before, but they were very, very tasty. A huge platter was $10.75 I believe. We also had the house salad which was pretty underwhelming but had a good lemon lime dressing and some kind of cheese sprinkled on top. The salsas that came with the chips were good - one was REALLY HOT. Whew.

We shares the following main dishes: Cochinita Pibil, which was a slow-roasted pork wrapped in banana leaves with achiote seasoning. This was YUMMY. Very tender, moist pork, and a delicious sauce, like a stew almost. The other dish we shared was the Poc-Chuc, charbroiled, marinated pork, came in small pieces with chopped radishes, beans, etc. Not as good as the first but also really good. The tortillas were OUTSTANDING - almost overshadowed the rest of the meal!

Those dishes, along with 4 beers, for around $50. Great little spot, and very friendly staff that cares that you have a nice time there! I'll definitely be back for more latino comfort food soon.

    I haven't been to this restaurant yet but a very nice guy who works at Fisherman's Wharf and who is from the Yucatan Peninsula originally tells me this is the place to go for authentic food. From what he says, the food is great so I'm planning a trip to this restaurant soon and I'll post a review.
