Hi all -

I am frequent user of the chowhound message board and when I had one night to spend in Orem- I went directly to this site.
This directed me to Las Tarascas on University Parkway in Provo (near Albertsons). I am a Mexican food freak and this restaurant made me want to move up here. I had a cheese enchilada which was not served in what we Americans think of as enchiladas. They dip the corn tortilla in a wonderful roja sauce and fold it than top it with cojita cheese, a sour cream sauce and lettuce. SCRUMPTOUS. I was also given a special salsa to go with the enchilada and it was not too spicy and lots of wonderful flavors. I also had a fish taco which was fried but crispy/light and not greasy. Pickled onion on top and a wonderful sauce that I can't begin to describe but it was delicious. The dish is served with the traditional Mexican potatoes not rice and beans. The owner Alfonso and his wife bring everything in fresh and what they can't find in the States they fly in.

So please go try it out. I hope you enjoy it!
