This week was a week in Dallas for a Tony Robbins Unleash The Power Within seminar. My husband had already been months ago and it transformed his life, so he insisted I check it out this time. To say the very least, it was a complete rewiring of my mind and a permanent change I get to keep with me for life. Boy was he right. I could write a whole post on the experience, and I will, but let’s talk about this Mexican food first.
We had a day after the seminar to explore Dallas so we went to the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. Equally Inventive and fun while also kid and adult friendly easily makes it a must if you visit Dallas. My favorite exhibit was the dinosaurs (duh) to which we spent so much time in, a hefty appetite was forged.
Eventually an excessive case of the HANGRIES led us to the closest highly rated place we could find, which happen to be Meso Maya, a little Mexican food place (YESSSS). I was thoroughly impressed with the little site when we first walked in. It was fresh yet traditional with a modern / urban touch that made it incredibly inviting.
We started out the meal with avocado margaritas and to my surprise, they created a way to make it with less sugar for me. It worked perfectly because I am not much of a drinker but addicted to anything avocado. Our wait for drinks was quickly met with salsa and chips fresh from the kitchen. Maybe a normal Mexican food staple but these chips and salsa were far from normal. Possible the best chips and salsa we had ever tasted, I kid you not we could not stop eating them. The thought, quality and flavor incorporated in the pairing was perfect while also staying true to traditional Mexican cuisine. We had to get another big thing of salsa because we loved it so much.
Avocado margaritas are bomb. The rim of the glass was dipped in a chili/cayenne mix that perfectly complemented the drink which was very good just by itself. You can never have too much avocado, so we ordered a side of guacamole for our amazing chips and salsa. It was a very generous portion to which we were so filled up, we only order one entrée to split. Not only was it a generous portion, but very tasty. Our entree was a fresh mango, avocado, shrimp chopped salad that was chalk full of nutrients and had us feeling energized (more avocado)!
Another little surprise on top of how impressed we were with the restaurant was that the owner came over to us half way through the meal and presented us with fresh made corn tortillas filled with guacamole (Avo is life). Um… Are we royalty or something? Obviously he knew I was a food blogger… Tehe.
I highly recommend this restaurant downtown Dallas to anyone visit and even more so to all y’all locals out there.
Lastly, #OOTD of the day was a casual and sleeve-less brick red dress with little beige wedges and a few gold accessories. Hair was half down, half bun.
