jkgourmet Posted August 26, 2010 Report Share Posted August 26, 2010 With another couple, we stopped in for dinner and drinks at the newly opened Las Quekas Quesadilla Bar. The first room is a small bar and several very low couches, which overall reminded me of a wine bar. I don't know how useful that space will be for the owner, but it is attractive. There are also a couple of small tables inside that room, but we ventured towards the garden in the back. Again, only a few tables, but a pretty area. Service provided by (I believe) the owner and his wife was friendly and sincerely interested that we enjoyed our food and drinks. These people care, and it shows. The menu is entirely in Spanish, which makes it hard for us uneducated Gringo's, as the owner's have some difficulty translating. Luckily, two of our group speak very good Spanish and ordered for us. Las Quekas has a small menu consisting of about ten different quesadilla's, chicken wings, sope's, taco's and a few other items. The also have four combination platters, each large enough to feed two or four, depending on which one you order, at prices ranging from 80 pesos to 120 pesos. We ordered two of these, and appreciated the owner said it might be too much food. We smilled, thanked them, and said 'bring it on.' And they did. We ended up tasting at least 8 of the ten varieties of quesadillas - I think that the most popular was the meat varieties and the poblano, though they all were very good. Different than quesadillas that we are used to in the states - these were really more like empanada's. At 12 pesos each (when ordered by themselves), they are not large, but definitely have a lot of taste packed into them. Not at all greasy or oily, and good quality ingredients. The sopes were larger than others we have had, and included beans and cheese and I don't know what else. I'm not a bean fan, so these were my least favorite. But others at the table really enjoyed them. The wings were a surprise - very tasty and crunchy, freshly cooked and moist. Small wings, but a treat. Margarita's were freshly made and excellent - served in martini glasses which added a little class, I thought. We enjoyed our wine by the glass - 35 peso's, I think. We saw the taco's on someone else's table - they were the rolled version covered in crumbled white cheese. This is an interesting place with caring, hardworking owners and some different choices on the menu than we generally find. Do stop in for a light snack or lunch, or dinner that you might order as we did - as if it were a tapas place. Location: on Colon just south of Bancomer - next to Zebra Jewelry Store. Sorry, I don't know the hours, but they seem to be always open when we walk by. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
