Angela's, Christina's

Bob Dobalina Jun 1, 2010 08:28 AM

We four dined at Angela's on Memorial Day evening - all was great, per usual. Guac was generous portion that the four of us could not finish. I had the special chicken Angela, which was two large pieces of boneless breast, stuffed with shrimp and jalapeno, sunk into a pool of chipotle cream sauce - side of rice - sauce was watery, but delicious - big entree, chicken tender, more jump shrimp on top. Good way to cheat on the ol' summer diet. FYI, sign on the door looking for experienced cooks and waitstaff.

And since I was cheating already, stopped by Christina's for a scoop - they have the rose right now, but I went with the licorice - more creamy than licoricy bite, which was what I was looking for. Imagine some of you might want them to bring it more, but yay for gray ice cream!

    Great to hear that Angela's is still on top of its game. How was the moisture level of the chicken? As much as I love Angela's, I find that their one weakness is that they often dry out the chicken and the pork that's the vehicle for all their great sauces.

      Finally made it to angela's this weekend and both of us had *extremely* dry pork, to the extent that in was almost inedible in some places. The flip side to it was that the sauces were absolutely amazing. If they had even halfway decent pork on our plates, it'd have been phenomenal

        The chicken was a tiny bit dry on the outside, but overall it was very moist I thought. Not like the pork, which apparently defies improvement - those cutlets have been like leather since day one - the one bad apple at the place.

        Also keep in mind that this was a stuffed breast, so a thicker cut of meat than the usual chicken cutlets, if that's what has been dried out in the past.

          Agree on the pork- dry but delicious sauce. I should try the chicken next.
          The guac is always a good bet though.
