Often there’s pork, sometimes mushrooms, and the amount of gravy can range from none to tons. This recipe features plump shrimp, seared mushrooms, crispy bacon, and rich cheese grits infused with layers and layers of flavor.

Walking through one of my favorite local international grocery stores recently I noticed a small Mexican sandwich shop in the back of the store. Since it was lunch time I thought I would take a chance and try something.

They have an extensive menu of authentic Mexican dishes.

I ordered the steak, cheese, onion, and cilantro Quesadilla. Not sure why they spell it with a z on their large menu board but it was definitely one of the best  quesadillas I have had. Simple, but packed with flavor and only $6.50. The fries were cooked in vegetable oil and a dead ringer for McDonalds fries with less salt.

They have a limited drink selection but it was fun having a Coke that brought back childhood memories.

Like the old adage don’t judge a book by it’s cover, don’t judge a restaurant  by it’s location. People tell me all the time about hole in the wall places that have amazing food. Most of the time I find these small out of the way places when I am not hungry. I’ve started to take a picture, do a little online research, and make a point to return later. Sure you’ll be served prison food in a few places but if you find a gem like Taqueria Yazmin2 it will be worth it.
