You remember that I was not impressed with the “authentic” Mexican food we first tried in Paris. And try as we might, Chipotle is not enjoyable either: twice as expensive for half as much food that is definitely French-ified. Read: no spicy, no cumin, no salt… and they put something sweet in the salsa. The nightmares!
Needless to say, this Floridian’s craving for beans and rice had been growing.
As we walked through the Places des Armes in Luxembourg, it became quickly apparent…
That one place was pleasing the crowds.
This girl and these kids begged to eat here. I attempted to convince them otherwise – that we didn’t come to Luxembourg to eat Mexican food- but you know. Turns out when you’re wrong, you’re wrong.
I was very wrong.
It was good.
Good job Dave. And I was going to insist on finding some Luxembourgish food. (Yes that is a real word!)
So Chi-Chi’s = good mexican food in Luxembourg. Who’d a thunk? Anissa mentioned she used to love that restaurant back in the states as a kid, but wasn’t sure what happened to it. What did she mean by that? Did her beloved local Chi-Chi’s shut down? Wait a minute… It’s all coming back to me… CHI-CHI’S! Bankruptcy! Followed by the largest outbreak of Hep A in US History! Lawsuits, and the DEATHS OF 600 PEOPLE WHO ATE THEIR FOOD!!
Although I might be blogging less next week because I’ll be at the doctor’s getting some blood work done. Just kidding. I hope.
