Friday night, I was craving Mexcian food, which seems to happen when I am hungry enough to need a basket of chips and salsa in front of me before i can even think about what to have for a meal. I had seen Guaca Maya, a converted industrial building of some sort in the stockyards, a few times when driving aimlessly, so I wanted to try it.
I may never go to any other Mexican restaurant in Omaha again.
The salsa was amazing. Just spicy enough to be feel warm, and a delicious roasted flavor. The chips were fresh and warm--something I usually take for granted until I eat somewhere that obviously just opened a bag of store chips.
For the meal itself, we got some platter thing for 2. It was a hot metal platform with:
2 chicken breasts
a big pile of pork
a bowl of beans
We were each given a plate full of rice, that was also delicious. The steak was incredible. The pork was incredible. I could go on like this for every thing on the platter.
Very rarely when i go to a restaurant, do I immmediately crave it the next day. I want more...
2 of us ate very well (and had a meal leftover) for about $30 including tip. There is also a full bar, and wandering musicians (guitar, accordion). Also, the toilets have foot pedals to flush.
