We're located at 3269 Folsom Blvd. in Sacramento, we offer a flavorful lineup of homestyle Mexican dishes, which include some not-so-typical selections – we savored the stuffed poblano peppers, a house specialty, filled with cheese, currants and pine nuts, doused with a roasted poblano sauce and served up with quinoa and whole black beans; and the enchiladas suizas (chicken enchiladas napped in a lively, just-spicy-enough tomatillo sauce). We also cater to vegetarians with our kitchen’s red potato, Swiss chard and black bean burrito and our grilled fish tacos.
Our salads are as pretty as a floral arrangements. They arrive in a large white bowl, ringed with leaves of butter lettuce whose tops bend toward the bowl’s center where lies half an avocado thinly sliced and fanned. Visible in the ring between the leaf tops and the avocado are strawberry halves, pinches of goat cheese. A generous scattering of sunflower seeds is also apparent. Out of sight are small slivers of fennel and thin slices of pear. Marina’s handmade citrus vinaigrette binds and defines the varied flavors.
Also intriguing is the aptly named This and That, with apples, mangoes, bananas, black bean, red onion, corn, jicama, red cabbage, romaine and raisin date dressing.
