Mis Cazuelas, Dallas, 6/28/16 & 8/2/16

Mis Cazuelas is a really small place of about 5 tables and a counter. There is another larger version further down the street but this cozy location is way better food even though it offers a more limited menu (not everything on the large menu is available at this smaller, original location). Their lunch food is fine but it’s the breakfast (served anytime) that’s my favorite there. It is a cash only place and little English is spoken, but you can get by with pointing at the menu. The kitchen is behind the bar seats and the constant patting that is the background sound is the lady making fresh corn and flour tortillas, as well as the thicker ones for gorditas. It feels a  lot like eating in your grandmother’s kitchen.

That alone is worth going for but they also have a very tasty fresh red salsa with flavors of cilantro, onion and tomato and fresh, hot chips with good corn flavor. Spiciness of the salsa varies but it’s never too hot. On the downside their climate control is challenged and the AC vents may drip condensation on your table so place your food carefully and use the paper towels on every table to wipe the chair if needed. It’s all part of the funky ambiance. They have several cooks and they all have slightly different styles but all laid back.
