One Little Thing (El Milagro)

Mike G | Jul 11, 200211:59 PM

So business took me to the south side, Back of the Yards or somewhere, and I decided to print out the 26th St. Guide that somebody (G Wiv?) did. (I'd remember but I gave it away. Have to print another one.)

Got down there and there was a parking place right in front of El Milagro so I figured, it's fate that I start right there and work my way down over time.

It's cafeteria style, I got tacos which allowed their fresh tortillas to serve as repositories for assorted stews and moles. The stews and moles were good, although I honestly had trouble telling which was chicken and which was pork (which makes me doubt that white meat has ever been used there, as you might guess at these prices).

But what was really good was that the tortillas seemed to be Krispy Kreme-conveyor belt fresh. (It's a tortilla factory as well as a restaurant.) And so my point is... how one little thing, the utter freshness of a tortilla, makes such a difference that I'm kind of thinking of running back down there tomorrow and trying a few more things.
