Mexican Food! Finally!

November 5th was David’s and my 2 year anniversary, so we decided to go out to eat last night. I had been wanting to go to a Mexican restaurant forever (since I’d left the US…), but we never got around to it somehow over the past 24 months. Either we’re extremely busy or there aren’t many Mexican restaurants around here – I’ll let you guess the answer.

But last night we finally went to Adelita’s in Sevrier (just down the lake from Annecy) and had a nice dinner of Frenchified Mexican food. As an entrada, we ordered Nacho Jalapeño which looked like this:

I was expecting nachos that you could eat with your hands, but then I remembered that no one in France uses their hands to eat. Needless to say, it was very strange using a fork and knife to eat this.

For the main dish, we both ordered tostadas. (I had already started eating before I remembered to take a picture, so the plate looked better than this when it first arrived.)

Overall, it was good, but I was really missing cheddar cheese. That bland emmental just doesn’t cut it.

The decor of the restaurant was cute though. I’ve missed bright colors in the land of gray and black.

Sombrero & toucan in the corner:

Happy anniversary, mon amour !

    Wow, Mexican food isn’t easy to find in France, is it? I first eat Mexican when I went to Mexico… and then in Canada.

    It’s like Indian food, in Brittany it’s not common,. unlike couscous, crêpes or italian.

    Congrats on two years! The tostadas look amazing…. not so sure about those nachos though. What exactly were they? What on earth was that made out of? It looks like rice pilaf.

    Congrats! There are at least two Mexican places in Mulhouse, and the one I tried was pretty decent, so perhaps you’ll have some luck finding some in Strasbourg!

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In January 2010, I started focusing more on teaching and learning languages in general. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at the university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling (though now my trips are usually in Australia) and being an American abroad.
