A Little Early Weekend Fun

Gentle Freinds, last night we met up with some friends for a little weekend fun on a Thursday... we really wanted to try this new place in the Castro...called...

... Papi Rico...

it's only been open for a few weeks and is a little bit of Puerto Vallarta right here in the City...

 ... it's really bright and colorful... and as you walk in you are in the bar area...
it's at the bar that you place your order for both food and drinks ...

 ... the dining areas are towards the back of the restaurant and there is a great patio/outdoor space in the way back!!  This area  I am sure we will be packed on the few warm days we have here by the bay...

 ...  we started off with some drinks and an order of really delicious guacamole.  The "Dos Salsas e Guacamole" comes with a tomatillo salsa and a red salsa along with the guac', the chips are made in-house and were warm and tasty.  The drinks menu has a nice selection a various Margarita type drinks, I don't like tequila so that's never for me.... there is also a nice list of Mexican and domestic beers... AND... they make some really delicious Sangria both red and white... 
I went with red, YUMMY!!
________________

For dinner we ordered Quesadillas...

three orders of carnitas ... 

and I ordered mine Al Pastor... 
they came out of the kitchen to the table really fast and were super tasty!!

After dinner, we needed...  dessert so we headed towards...


... which is about 100 feet from Papi Rico's so it was easy to find...
and there's a big ice cream cone in front so you can't miss it...

...  we all got a little something, I took a piece of the Orange olive oil cake home.   

At about 9:00pm I made a cup of coffee and enjoyed my piece of cake... 
while being wrapped up in a quilt watching...

The quesadillas looked fabulous as did the desserts. How was the cake slice you brought home, Edgar? Enjoy your weekend!

Loved the post and pictures of the food, especially the Quesadillas. Guns of Naverone is my dad's favorite movie too and he made us watch it when we were kids. Unfortunately I can't remember anything about the movie. Your post has made me want to go back home and watch the movie soon
