Having read your many kind words, and armed with the street number from your last post, we made it to Mi Tierra Friday night.

My husband is Guatemalan and has truly missed "home"cooking. We sampled the pupusas (natch), tamale, grilled steak, refried beans, fried plantain, beans and rice, vegetables in garlic sauce, enchiladas, tortillas and flan. The only disappointment was the steak. He has spoken many times of the specific flavor he misses in the Guatemalan preparation of steak, and was hopeful that he would find it with Mi Tierra's. He didn't, and quickly discarded his for more promising offerings. I thought it was yummy, though not the kind of cut to which I am accustomed. The flan, too, he thought was a little odd. To be sure a half an hour in foam carryout containers probably didn't actually *help* anything, but we really were quite happy overall.

The surprise homerun was the tamale-that he pronounced as being just like what his grandmother would make. The acidity of the enchilada was also appealing and authentic. He is a conservative eater, so I was delighted to hear him say that he wants to go back and try everything else on the menu.

Thank you for tipping us off to this place. I always look for, and enjoy, your postings.
