Traditional guacamole in a molcajete, a lava stone mortar and pestle served at Rosa Mexicano.


Today we went to Rosa Mexicanofor Kayla’s birthday.  (Kayla, Candy, MaKayla, Michael and me)  We got a great corner booth  with a great view of all the activities of Atlantic Station.  The restaurant is beautiful and the menu is high end Mexican cuisine.  The atmosphere is wonderful. 

They are known for tableside made guacamole.  They push a cart around with all the fixins and make it the way you like it.   There were five of us and we all wanted the guacamole so we ordered a double.   The man put in two avocados, about one tomato, one jalapeno, two tablespoons of onion, salt and a cup of cilantro.  (we are going to start adding cilantro to ours at home)   He mushed it all up and served it with some really fresh chips and homemade tortillas.  IT WAS FANTASTIC!!  We all enjoyed it.  It was so good I almost ordered more.

We then each ordered a variety of items so we could taste some different things.  I got a shredded beef dish with Mole sauce.  It was very nice.  We had chicken dishes and a great cheese dish.  Very good food!

When the check came it was expensive but it was special and worth it.  I will tell you the guacamole was $24.  Yes that is correct, $24 and the truth is we could have easily had another serving.   I figured the cost for the ingredients to be $3 at the most, Rosa is doing quite well for herself!!   As much as we enjoyed Candace and I decided we liked ours and Uncle Jimmy’s just as much, maybe even more!!  lol

I love experiences like those with my girls, they are priceless!  Maybe we could make this into one of those VISA Priceless commercials.  My TIME WITH MY DAUGHTERS IS THE BEST THING EVVVVVEEEERRRRRR!!!!!  I would take them back and order a quadruple gaucamole if it would give us another great time like we had today.
