Finally made it to Tu Y Yo last night

Service was a bit slow, but not a big deal since we were not in a rush. Very friendly service, just intermittent.

Shared the Jalapeños Maria Luisa appetizer ($6.95) which was 3 Breaded Jalapeno peppers filled with shredded chicken served over a bed of tomato sauce (from website). I liked them, but I would have expected another one. Very tasty, some heat, the shredded chicken made them hard to cut with a knife so it was basically fried finger food. I'd order them again.

For an entree I ordered the calamari in a thick, rich tomato sauce. Very good, with a bit of spice. I cannot find it on the menu.

My friend had the Salmón Criolla. $17.95 From the menu: Fresh pan fried Atlantic salmon in a creamy Guajillo sauce served with chipotle potato cakes. What they don't mention is that this came with a small tamale type thing that had grasshoppers in it. yes, real grasshoppers. The waitress said they taste sort of like shrimp. They tasted like weird to me but that's my fault not theirs. The salmon had a nice crunchy exterior. I didn't try the potato cake. She ate most of it so everything must have been good.

The mixed rice and beans served with each dish were excellent. I could have just eaten those alone. Portions were substantial.

With two glasses of sangria the total was like $62.

I'll be back, but maybe next time I'll research the board's favorite dishes first.
