I got a call telling me that two friends were landing in San Diego tonight, and that they were all meeting up for dinner near their hotel at Old Town Mexican Cafe. Being from Canada, real Mexican food is hard to find, so naturally, I accepted the offer.
My main meal was the trio enchilada: shrimp, chicken, and beef served with a side of beans. The shrimp enchilada was my favourite.
S also ordered the trio enchilada, but I honestly don't know how his ended up looking so different from mine. He said that he asked for his Sonora style but from what I've read, the only difference is that one is baked and the other is pan fried. I sent him a few emails afterwards asking about how he got his enchiladas to look the way it did, but his answers were vague, and he jokingly called me a silly gringo for all my questions. Gringo is a Spanish term used in some Latin American countries for 'foreigner'.
