Last week my friend Jenna and I went to a new restaurant in North Park for dinner. I love living in North Park. There are so many great restaurants. There is even a whole blog dedicated to the awesome restaurants on 30th!
I snapped pictures on my walk to the restaurant. It was a beautiful night!
All of the electricity boxes (I think that’s what they are!) are painted like so:
And I arrived at El Take it Easy.
I loved the ambiance!
And everything on the menu sounded great…
We started with sangrias.
And some water with a sage leaf in it! Makes such a nice, subtle flavor!
I love when restaurants bring out a free appetizer. This was homemade tortilla chips with a plum-peanut-cucumber sauce. Interesting, and so delicious!
Everything is local here.
We ordered shrimp and grit fritters…
So creamy and crisp- not greasy or anything! And the dipping sauce was perfection.
And we split this adobo-root vegetable mole sauce for our meal. Served with homemade tortillas. What a difference the homemade factor makes!
The seating was cool- the outer wall of the restaurant is carved out so one person sits inside and one out.
On the way home we saw some local music going on in a coffee shop- made for a cool photo-op.
MmMmM I loved the food at El Take It Easy. Almost as much as I loved the name 😉
