Dos Caminos

It's embarrassing how long ago this meal happened, but life (aka work) has gotten in the way of blogging far too much this year. Allow me to catch up by bringing you one of my more delicious food experiences! I hit up Dos Caminos on Park Avenue South, just steps from Union Square, for a networking lunch months ago. My small group opted to get a pitcher of the red wine sangria for the table...a very tasty move, indeed. It's sweet without being too sweet, the wine flavor still comes through, and there was a delightful assortment of fruit to finish off once the delicious drink was gone.

The guacamole at Dos Caminos is a must-eat for sure. We ordered a medium bowl for the table, and while we requested medium (or spicy, but definitely NOT mild), this was actually quite mild. Still yummy, but didn't have the kick I was hoping to taste. Their cilantro is cut in chiffonades, thin ribbon-like strips, which greatly increases the odds of having a big green piece stuck in your teeth--be warned!

I make pretty damn good quesadillas myself, but the mention of chipotle in Dos Caminos' version hooked me in immediately. Oh my goodness were these delicious. Dripping in butter, too, but tasty as all get-out. I barely ate half, and shared some with my tablemates. No way was I finishing this baby, but I gave it a good effort. Soooo tasty. Not as good as mine, mind you, but pretty freaking close. ;)

My dining companions got the shrimp pizza, which was also tasty. I had a small bite, and it was good, but I was super happy with my dish and went back to taking on the 'dilla!

This was a tastebud-pleasing, belly-filling meal that left me longing for a siesta, but it definitely wasn't cheap. Worth the occasional splurge, but a little too pricey for me to make it a regular stop. Back when my old roommate Anapalooza worked at DC (Houston St. branch) it was a little more affordable, and way more fun, but it's still a good place for a delicious, well-put together meal--just bring your dinero and prepare to spend it!
