Sylvia’s Kitchen (Woodway)
On my way to Sylvia's Kitchen, I run into a former coworker and he tells me he doesn't like Sylvia's Kitchen because they try to be upscale Mexican. I can understand not liking the idea of that. I always think it's weird when Vietnamese restaurants try to go upscale...well that's the whole point of Vietnamese food, it's cheap and good.
I meet my two girlfriends, Jennifer Griffin-Kim and Sonya, and we sit and they bring out the chips and warm salsa. The chips are thick and tasty. The salsa is pretty watery, not a lot of substance and is warm. I don't know if I was just hungry or what, but I liked the combination of it. I do notice the order of 2 enchiladas run about $10-14, which I think is fairly normal for dinner. Maybe not at a taqueria, but definitely any restaurant, chuy's, cyclone anayas, etc. I order the Mexico City, which is chicken enchiladas with a tomatillo sauce. The chicken was a little spicy, I thought my order was good. I'd probably eat there again. Jennifer and Sonya had the spinach enchiladas and they said it was good, but I didn't like it. It was pretty slow inside, so the atmosphere was nice for us three to catch up and chat. I had a pretty good experience, especially since I purchased a coupon valued at $40 for $20, so good food, great company, good experience.
