It was out-of-the-way place I would never find if Nat hadn't showed us the way to this favourite of many Richmonders. There were right many folks inside on a Thursday night. As usual in the USA we had to wait to be seated by the restaurant staff, all of whom know Nat.
The first thing I noticed were thousands of Christmas lights put both outside and inside (under the ceiling). They were shining and blinking and made the festive atmosphere.
There are typical Mexican meals available:
- Carne Asada
- Taco Dinner
- Fajitas Dinner
- Enchilada Dinner
Menu here: 1, 2.
La Casita offers also combination plates for those who can't decide. They include basic Mexican dishes like taco, tostada, enchilada, burrito. All dinners include La Casita's homemade Mexican Rice and Beans - made fresh daily. All meals are served with three homemade Mexican sauces:
- red medium,
- white hot,
- green very hot (warning: it's terribly hot!!!).
Favorite Dish: Nat and Urszula had the combination. I had a beef fajita - my recommendation.
Beef fajita served with sauteed onions, red and poblano peppers, guacamole, sour cream, rice and beans (recipe here) tasted great and cost only $9.00 (add 4.5% Virginia sales tax and 15% tip = almost $11.00).
If you don't like beef there is chicken ($8.50), shrimp ($11.50) and Porta Bello ($8.50) fajita dinner.
The combination Dinner of Urszula included one taco, one tostada and one enchilada, topped with lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. Everything tasted delicious, believe me, and cost only $7.00 (add 4.5% Virginia Sales Tax and 15% tip = almost $8.5).
