Payday #5 - Pasquals

Being near Hilldale at lunch hour, we decided to duck into Pasquals for a quick taco!

Pasquals is a Southwestern restaurant with fresh flavors. Not quite as bold as Tex/Mex; not authentic like a Mexican restaurant can be. And they don't pretend to be more than what they are, which puts them squarely on the list of tacos to try.
They have a couple of taco platters available, which come with rice and beans. For tacos today, I chose shredded chicken on soft blue corn tortillas.

The highlight is the shredded chicken, very juicy and flavorful. The flavor, though, is chicken. And salt. There may be other seasonings in there, but you don't get the same cumin or chili-powder flavor of other pulled chicken elsewhere. It works very well for them.

The tacos are loaded with sour cream, lettuce, shred mix cheese, and black olives. These groceries are mainly unnecessary, particularly since the chicken is interesting in and of itself. The blue corn shells were a bit on the dry side and could have either been heated more or benefited from a little oil.

This sauce is what took me down, though. I like hot food, and this definitely qualified! I put some on my first taco, and it was excellent. I cruised through without it on the second taco since it's a workday and I'm drinking water. A nice Dos Equis Amber would have been great to keep pouring on the sauce.

Overall, I give it a 7 out of 10.
