Mi Pequena Hacienda
Vi Va La Mexico! Grab your maracas, we’re going to the top rated Mexican Restaurant in Lex, Mi Pequena Hacienda.
We’ve got plenty of Mexican Restaurant’s to choose from, but only this one is rated #1 on Urbanspoon.com. And MyHappyFork is going over to bust the Hacienda piñata open to discover the delicious treats that may be inside.
Immediately I’ll say the Salsa here is my favorite. After the first chip my taste buds were doing the Mexican Hat Dance around in my mouth. And if you need a refill to keep the fiesta going, alert passing staff who will summon the “Salsa Gods” via their ear-bud style 2-way radios. That level of communication is warranted, because this thick and tasty salsa is very popular. And I imagine their supply could fill the halls of Montezuma, because they keep it coming!
My Steak Fajitas were good. Better than most, my dish wasn’t soaked in a sacrificial pot of oil. Fajitas shouldn’t have oil running down your arm and Mi Pequena Hacienda does it right. Though I’ve had slightly better, I wasn’t disappointed.
The other entrée, a Taco Salad was also good. And like our previous dish, didn’t have a lot of oil in the bottom. But the Hacienda didn’t cross the border of culinary creativity on this one. While no fault is placed for technical cooking skill, nothing sets this dish apart from any other in Lexington. Just like comparing packs of Chiclets Gum, they’re all the same.
I’ll admit the hard, stucco coated, walls and design of the interior makes it seem noisy. Only a Mariachi Band at your table could overpower the crowd of this packed and obviously popular Mexican Restaurant.
I can see why Mi Pequena Hacienda is well-liked. Located just of Nicholasville Rd, with good food and service it will certainly create a following. But will your favorite dish be the best you’ve ever had?
If you’ve not tried it, you should. Perhaps the food will send your tummy through its own Mexican Eatery Revolution!
