Lunch special - $10- soup and plate

I know very little about Mexican food and had no desire to learn more. I had gone to a Mexican restaurant under the bridge in Detroit about 20 years ago and it was disgusting and even worse there was far too much of it. I should have known better. It had been enthusiastically recommended by someone Czech who cringed at the thought of eating vegetables. I thought that I had an obligation to try because the guy was my banker.

La Mexicana had a lunch special sign out so I thought, what the heck.
Soup and a plate, $10. The soup was a veg black bean which I chose in preference to the veg veg. Delicious and ample.
The plates were tacos-enchiladas- burritos-flautas-chimichangas -quaesedillas etc. Choice of chicken, beef, veg.
I went veg and had the bean soup and a veg whatever combo.
The food had been made with talent and care. Little touches of things everywhere and good control in the flavouring. Lots to eat. I still don't know much about Mexican food but I thought that what I had was delicious and satisfying. And cheap. Cost was about 50% of the dinner cost.
