Thursday, Bev and I celebrated 21 years of marriage by dining out; just the two of us. Yes, after that many years we still enjoy being a couple with many things to talk about. We chose Nuestra Cocina at 2135 SE Division St, Portland, OR for dinner where we exchanged two anniversary cards each.
We had an very nice and knowledgeable wait person. Instead of ordering a main entree, we went the tapa way by ordering Albondigas de Coedero or lamb meatballs and tender cactus strips in a spicy chipotle sauce; Camarones con tamarind or shrimp with a tamarind dip; Pollo enchiladas in a tasty, smokey mole; and pork tacos.
Everything was delicious and people were waiting in line to get in when we finished. I probably would not order the lamb meatballs again, but more tacos and enchiladas. For me, the meatball sauce was just too spicy. The tapas average about $9.00 and the four we ordered were filling.Our whole meal with drinks cost us $59.25 plus tip.
We both decided during dinner that we would re-up for another 21 years!
