Our meal began with freshly made guacamole made tableside. A simple recipe of tomato, onion, jalepeno, and cilantro served with a cute little straw basket of mini corn tortillas, crunchy tortilla chips, and 2 kinds of thin salsas in varying degrees of heat to your liking. So fresh and chunky. Perfect mixture of heat and avocado with the veggies and the warmth of the tortillas and the crunch of the chips.

Now you might be asking how does pork belly and duck fit into the diet of someone who's all pesca-vegetarian and organic and whatnot. Well, sometimes, you see things on a menu that you can't get just anywhere and you know they're going to be tasty and you think, "I've gotta try those cuz who knows when I'll get the chance to again?" So that's how it fits.
Ok. Ahem...Moving on...
Along with our entrees we were served a bowl of rice and a bowl of refried black beans with Chihuahua cheese. We also had a lovely little pitcher of a raspberry sangria with diced apples.
For dessert (by this time we were so stuffed but we couldn't pass it up) we had churros which are basically elongated donuts...crispy on the outside, soft and doughy on the inside, smothered with cinnamon and sugar and served with 3 sauces, a raspberry puree, a creamy caramel, and a spicy Mexican chocolate.
Oh, so heavenly!!! To the moon and back!
I'd definitely give Rosa Mexicano a 5 star (or 5 Yumma) rating! Can't wait to go back and try more stuff on their menu!
