It was Tuesday night. Just one of those after work nights, where I was tired and did not feel at all like cooking. I called Erica and asked if she wanted to try out a new, to us, restaurant. The answer was a very quick..."Yes!" We had walked past this restaurant about a week ago and what piqued our interest was the colorful decor. Bright and whimsical....fun. I zoomed home, picked up Erica and off we went.....to "Los Portales Mexican Restaurant" in Durham NC.
It is spanish for "Welcome". Very nice greeting on the bench outside their door.
Menu was extensive. I did not get to study the menu at home (like I usually do) before our visit, so I made a quick choice. Enchiladas Blancas....They were good. I did add a bit of salsa for a touch more flavor.
All in all what did I think of LosPortales? It was fun and relaxing after a long day at work. The decor was colorful and interesting and the food good. The service was friendly and the atmosphere casual. I would go back.
Get out and try a new restaurant.
Enjoy Your World!
