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 Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of exciting Mexican fare at Pura Enchilada, located in Lawrenceville.
Fifteen varieties of vibrant, cooked-to-order enchiladas form the centerpiece of this authentic eatery's enticing menu. Utilizing all fresh ingredients and scratch-made sauces, the enchiladas draw their names from the regions that inspired them, just like secret government bases. Diners can taste the salty-shore breezes of Vallarta with a saucy encasement of grouper marinated in roasted chipotle peppers, garlic, and spices ($2.95), or jet to Chiapaneca for an ambling blend of slow-roasted pork, ancho and guajillo peppers, fresh herbs, and salsa verde ($2.75). Other enchiladas pack lamb, scallops, spinach, roasted red potatoes, and more. Less fork-intensive eats include guacamole ($4.95), queso fundido ($7.75), an enormous burro grande ($13.95), and a tri-taco entree ($11.99).
Though not included with this deal, fresh-squeezed margaritas ($5.50+) also tickle tongues visiting Pura Enchilada, waving classic and seasonal flavor feathers such as lime, blackberry, guava, and mango.
