La Costa Azul
La Costa AzulI visited La Costa Azul a long time ago and commented on Hack Bend about my experience. I ended up never writing the review for some reason though. So I recommended to some friends that we should give it a try. After being seated and snacking on the chips and salsa we ordered drinks. Everyone but "watching my calorie intake - Lucas" kept it real by ordering Negra Modellos or Pacificos.
The salsa had an odd flavor. I can't quite put a finger on it but it tasted weird. It was slightly spicy but lacked the traditional tomato salsa flavor. I still ate it cause I was hungry but it wasn't my favorite.
We ordered lunch and another round of beers (and a diet coke). And then we waited. And waited. And waited. While we waited the hot hostess kept coming back to our table, looking at us through her Lisa Lobe glasses and explaining why it was taking so long. I felt bad for the top half of her sweater as it was stretched out to capacity. She must have back problems with how off balance and top heavy she is. Best part of "diet coke's" lunch was when Miss Mammaries had to reach across the table to the other side and totally encroached on his personal space.
Anyway, I ordered the Picadillo Enchiladas. When we ordered our food we were told that they had run out of rice and so we would get double the beans. That's totally fine with us but instead of just serving us double beans and no rice, I think they held back on serving our food until they had time to make a fresh batch of rice. When Hispanic Lisa Lobe and her Sweater Kittens finally arrived with our food, she stressed that the plates were hot. She used oven mitts to put the plates down. As anyone does when you're told that the plate is hot, you touch it just to see how hot it actually is. We all did and all our plates were cold.
My enchiladas were cold and the rice was a shade away from being plain white rice. Definitely not worth the wait just for freshly made rice. My enchiladas had barely enough meat for one enchilada let alone two, and were as flat as pancakes. No one at the table had anything nice to say about their dishes and after waiting as long as we did, no one was impressed. The food was cheap at only $6.99 for lunch, but the 12 ounce beers were $4.25 each! That's just silly!
"Diet Coke" and I had to leave before the check arrived so I didn't get a chance to say goodbye to La Lisa Lobe but thought I'd pay tribute with a Spanish translation of a snippet of Stay.
"Usted dice que oigo solamente lo que quiero:
I don' t escucha difícilmente, don' atención de la paga de t a la distancia que you' re funcionamiento a cualquier persona, dondequiera
I don' t entiende si usted cuida realmente,
I' m que oye solamente la negativa No, no, no, malo"
