Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican dinner fare at Frida's Mexican Restaurant in Mill Creek.
Brother-and-sister chef team Antonio and Rocio rise early each day to prepare fresh sauces and assess the rotating selection of Mexican recipes that twirl across Frida’s menu. The Cielo, Mar y Tierra platter draws sizzling protein from its namesake sky, sea, and earth with chicken, chorizo, and shrimp warmly enveloped in blankets of handmade masa shells ($9.94). On days when the sun brings to life the bright hues favored by the eatery's namesake painter, Frida Kahlo, diners head to an outdoor patio to feast on Remedios Varo, boneless roasted chicken thighs stuffed with spinach and feta ($15.95). Steam rises among the leaves of potted plants and rival chefs disguised as potted plants, wafting from Lomo Orozco, a roll of pork and beef tenderloin wrapped around a veggie and chorizo stuffing ($16.95). Murals and paintings serve as further testament to the owners' artistic interests and let patrons imagine what it would have been like to live in a tube of paint.
Frida's Mexican Restaurant
Inspired by the marriage of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera—two Mexican artists with two very different aesthetics—brother-and-sister team Antonio and Rocio Pina opened Frida’s and filled its menu with a combination of classic Mexican fare and new, regional cuisine. Recipes on the ever-changing menu come from the Pinas’ frequent visits to Mexico. Chefs douse burritos and enchiladas with chipotle chilies and dark chocolate sauce. Chicken, steak, and seafood arrive at tables in a myriad of zesty dishes, and meat-free fare includes crepes stuffed with sautéed veggies. An outdoor patio offers ample sunshine during meals while the restaurant’s interior is decorated with dark-wood accents, decadent chandeliers, and jewel-toned seating which pay homage to the work of its namesake. In addition, a floor-to-ceiling display of more than 280 bottles of tequila, cognac, and wine divides the bar and dining room and can only be passed through via osmosis.
