La Casita Mexicana - A Journey Through Mexican Cuisine

La Casita Mexicana

A couple of weeks ago we received an email from Javier (Teenage Glutster) asking some friends to join him for dinner at La Casita Mexicana.

"It will about 18 courses, covering the barren desert bounty, the humid coastal concoctions to the ways of the tropical wetland--Mexican gastronomy at it's tribal finest."

We quickly replied, "Hell yea."

Ooops....erase, erase, erase.

I mean, "Yes. Please count us in."

This 18-course meal from Chefs Jaime Martin del Campo and Ramiro Arvizu of La Casita Mexicana was nothing but a BEAST.
