Kalamazoo, MI - old SW/TexMex restaurant...
Anyone remember a Southwestern or Tex Mex type place on the north side of Kalamazoo? I swear the building was green. We're talking about maybe 1995? They had an appetizer called "Dinosaur Eggs", which were just stuffed jalapenos, but they were real good and I want to find a copycat recipe for that dipping sauce.
They had huge margaritas, too. I swear the name was a combo of a typical American name and a Mexican last name, in the vain of Don Pablo's, but that's not it.
Ring a bell with anyone?
At 131 and W.main st. I think it is now a TGIF. Across from the
Burger in Paridise used to be ChiChi's when It was good also. Really
miss those two. My favorite was Carlos Murphy's tho..
What you are looking for is the iguana eggs with chili dip.. Specifically the
dip. That Honey chili dip I have been searching for since they went out of
business. Several friends and I ate lunch there every sunday after a late night
of saturday night fun. I would have never described it as a sweet chili dip, but that's
what it was called. It was a honey/mustard and I suspect sour cream was in
there.. It completed that awesome appetizer.
Hey, good luck, I've been looking for over 5 years now.. All I know, Is that it was
sweet, and had honey and mustard in it. I suspect it had sour cream because of
it's density, or ability to cling onto the jalapeno crust (Hey, great crust as well that
was no cheap dunk deal, that was good...)
The nachos there will killer too, noone's beat Carlos Murphy's, an exceptional
close given to Flanigan's in florida (deerfield beach florida)
Nachos and Iguana Eggs, almost every sunday
around noon-1 for my entire twenties. Lot's of good times there!!
Well, roniea, thanks for taking me back to those memories!!
<if you ever have any luck, please try to seek me out!!!> Cheers!
