Short story: Best Mexican place I've been to in Minnesota. I feel terrible for not visiting Las Mojarras sooner. Well, not THAT terrible because I haven't been working; only went there last night because a friend owed me a drink and that was the closest place. We were there during dinner hours - 6 pm to 8 pm - and in all that time only one other table came in. Highlight: Absolutely the best Sopa Azteca I've ever, ever, EVER had. Even though my lips were burning, I couldn't stop eating it. My friend had a spoonful and said it raised her core temperature two degrees. But it's not too spicy. It is spicy, but it's mostly flavorful and tangy. Food: We had an appetizer of some kind of fish tacos (I can't remember what they called it) with a really spicy red sauce, fresh veggies, beans, sour cream, and Mexican cheese. My friend had the chicken enchiladas with mole sauce, which she said was delicious. Everything on the menu looked delicious - it took us forever to decide! Drinks: Very limited wine selection, but it was only $3/glass or $11/bottle and very drinkable - which is outstanding at those prices. I think my margarita was made from a mix. I tried to ask about it, but he waitress didn't understand enough English and thought I was asking about flavored margaritas - which they don't have, which I consider a plus. Anyway, it was either very good for a mix margarita, or so-so for a scratch margarita, I'm not sure which. Atmosphere: It's hard to judge the atmosphere of an empty restaurant. I liked the decor a lot. They kept the interesting paint jobs from two restaurants ago on the walls and ceiling and added tropical fish murals on some walls. There's a tropical fish tank that could be better-placed. The music was not too loud, which I'm starting to think of as an extreme rarity. Service: Our waitress tried hard, she really did, but without her being able to understand us, it was frustrating. The menu was entirely in English, so it was kind of odd to have a non-speaking waitress. But she did make a good sales pitch for the special and told us all her favorite dishes. Price: Extremely low for the quality, but high for this neighborhood. Most entrees were under $20 but the house specialties were mostly $20-$30. As I mentioned, the wine was unbelievably cheap and good for the price. My soup was about $7. I would have paid a helluva lot more. My friend's enchiladas (a platter with beans and rice and all that) was about $12, I believe.
Today was my first visit to this location and I was impressed. I went for lunch and ordered the blackened catfish sandwich. The waitress took my r…
I love Anchor Fish & Chips! I'm a fish and chips connoisseur. If there is fish and chips on the menu, I will always order because I love it that much. Anchor has the best I've ever had and I've been iving on the east coast for a few years now. Anchor's fish is large, crispy and flavorful. The batter isn't soggy ever. The portion of fish is always generous and it's reasonably priced. In jacksonville, FL and Charleston, Sc, some places charge up to $20 for fish and chips. Anchor makes their tartar sauce here and that compliments the fish nicely. They have large steak fries that are pretty good. I always order a side of curry sauce to dip them in. They changed their curry sauce recipe a while ago and the old recipe was better. I'm not sure if anyone has noticed but I did and was a little disappointed even thought it was still good. I've tried their shepherd's pie here and that was ok. I won't be ordering that again when I know they have the best fish and chips. Every time I go back to MN, I always make a trip out here to remember what delicious fish and chips tastes like.
Simple yet very satisfying! The food was cooked fresh and tasted great. I loved the fish taco. I have been there a couple times and always try something new. I was told that they have a new owner and will be adding more menu items.
