Last Wednesday my daughter Kilah and I went shopping and out to eat. We had no particular restaurant in mind so when we saw one we’d never heard of before we decided to try it. Mesa21 is a Mexican restaurant and we both love Mexican food. Here are some photos of the restaurant and the food we ordered:




This was the appetizer

My Mesa 21 Salad

Kilah’s Tortilla Soup

I ordered a Chicken Tinga taco & a Barbacoa taco

Kilah ordered a Chicken Tinga taco & a Grilled Chicken taco

Both came with rice and beans
It was all really good and we plan on going back

A few hours later we were at Target and when I saw the soft pretzels I had to get one even though it had only been about 3 hours since we had eaten all that food. When I was in grade school I used to go most Saturdays to a mall with my two BFF’s and we’d get one of these every time. I still get one when I see them anywhere. I love them!

Adding this restaurant to my 2018 Bucket List

  9. Soft pretzels! I haven’t had one in forever but I used to love them. I loved those and Orange Julius too. I think I could have lived solely off those two things. Your meal with your daughter sounds delightful. Sounds like a great time!
