Casa Rica-The Mexican Food Place
At Casa Rica-The Mexican Food Place, the chicken, shrimp, and veggies are fashioned into two very different cuisines: Mexican and Indian. On the Mexican side of the menu, tortillas form the base of burritos, enchiladas, and quesadillas stuffed with chicken and cheese. The chef—who has been there since 1996—cuts and bakes tortillas to build nacho towers piled with seasoned beef, melted cheese, jalapenos, guacamole, and dollops of sour cream. They also swaddle tamales in a corn husk wrapper before cooking, and stuff green chiles with jack cheese before deep-frying. On the Indian side of things, coriander, cumin, garlic, and ginger deliver the quintessential Indian flavors to such dishes as tandoori chicken, lamb saag, and shrimp biryani. The chef eschews meat in a number of vegetarian dishes, including chickpeas submerged in a curry sauce and samosas stuffed with potatoes and peas.
