For years I have seen the containers of pulled pork at Whole Foods but never had any desire to try it. It sounded good the other night, though, so I got a small container. At home I spread the pork on two sliders buns and topped it with corn & arugula salad - something I have been eating for years at Whole Foods. The pork was very good but the sauce was not; each bite seemed to vary between either being too sweet or too salty. I have no idea how this is possible, but that's what happened. I am willing to try the pork again, but I'm not holding out much hope that it will be better.
We ran out for lunch on Saturday but we had to be quick - Elizabeth couldn't be away from the computer for very long for something she was working on most of the weekend. We went to La Estrella. I had a fish taco and an al pastor taco; Elizabeth had two carnitas tacos. Everything was great and the four tacos and two sodas filled us up and cost just over nine bucks. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I have no idea why I haven't been eating at La Estrella for years. (Other than that I'm a moron most of the time.)
I realized when we received the food that I had left my camera in the car, but I've taken enough pictures of La Estrella in the last couple months, so I figured my cell phone camera would suffice.
What did surprise me was that the teriyaki flavor only seemed to last a couple weeks before it was replaced by a "jalapeno-lime." This did not bother me; of the several flavors of Church's boneless wings that I have tried, the teriyaki was my least favorite. Obviously, I had to try the new jalapeno-lime wings. And they were very good. Not as good as the cilantro-lime had been, and certainly not as good as the sweet & spicy, which is my favorite. But still very good.
