Anita's - New Mexico-style cuisine - Fullerton

JBinOC | Aug 16, 2009 03:41 PM

Dined at Anita's on Harbor Blvd. in Fullerton for breakfast/brunch.
Was o.k....
airy, pleasant atmosphere in the dining room (at least at about 10:30 a.m.) and rapid, attentive, courteous service from 'Alex,' as he was identified on the check.

Carne Adovada con Huevos was just slightly disappointing. The pork, while fork tender, was somewhat dry and could have been even more spicier. I know it can be a challenge to keep stew from being dry, but I was hoping the seasoning would be potent enough to keep my mouth involuntarily moist. Alas, it wasn't.

The home fries on the plate were above-average, though, and good home fries are one of my benchmarks of a kitchen staff that really does care about everything that exits its doors and is destined for a table.
Would like to return for dinner...maybe to get something with chile verde, which allegedly is more indigenous to New Mexico, instead of the red chiles of adovada fame.
