If you’re going to visit Las Delicias, there’s one thing you need to do as soon as you get there: get the guacamole. Seriously. Even if you think you don’t like guacamole, you should order some.
The guacamole is served with a spoon, which you’ll need. This isn’t a bowl full of mashed avocados that are easily scooped onto chips. The menu isn’t lying when it says that the guacamole is made fresh to order. It was clear that after I ordered, someone in the kitchen cut an avocado into chunks just for me.
After looking for a lunch menu (Las Delicias doesn’t have any lunch-specific offerings), I ordered the chicken enchiladas verde.
When the server set it down in front of me, I was sort of amazed. The dish was huge – there wasn’t a part of the plate not covered in food or verde sauce. It also looked insanely fresh. Somewhere under that mound of lettuce, tomato, avocado and sour cream, there are three corn tortillas filled with chicken.
While the food was absolutely gorgeous, the interior of the restaurant was a bit odd. The walls are bare, and fancy red upholstered chairs (like you’d find in a really nice home dining room) are pulled up to regular restaurant tables. All of the effort has clearly been put into the food, which isn’t a bad thing at all.
