Uptown Whittier - Restaurant Sierra Verde

Located a few doors up from the Whittier Theater, tried it today after a movie. It's a little restaurant, 7 or eight tables indoors and a LARGE patio in back. It's not a full service joint but the typical order at the counter family place. The menu is large, there is two or three so don't be afraid to ask if you don't see something you want.
I had the enchilada de pollo plate, came with three slim enchiladas, rice beans and a small-ish salad. The rice, fluffy wasn't the typical Spanish rice I was raised on and used to. But was a good complement to the beans. The beans were a little wetter than I was used to but tasted very good with the qeso de fresca on top. The enchiladas are slim, not the typical Norte enchi's Angelenos are used to but there are three of them. The enchi was well filled with chicken, moist and tastey. The enchi sauce was tasty also, a little spicy but complemented the dish well.
All in all a very good meal and I would recommend a visit if your in the uptown Whittier area.
