When a new Mexican restaurant comes to town, I have to check it out. I eat Mexican food at least 3 times a week, so I like to know which restaurants I can dine at with no problems. My friend and I met at La Comida, located in Addison next to Neighborhood Services. I didn’t know what to expect but kept an open mind.
I arrived a little after noon and was sat promptly with no wait time. We were greeted by the owner, Mario, who gave us a little back ground info about what the restaurant offered, the food that was served and what to expect. He explained that him and his brother both use to work for Mi Cocina, the both helped with opening new stores. They enjoyed working there but being raised in Mexico, they wanted to offer a restaurant that gave the people what they want. Dallas is all about Tex Mex so they incorporated Tex-Mex with real Mexican food.
Ceviche has slowly but surely become one of my favorite appetizers. I hate calling it an appetizer because I could make a whole meal out of it. It’s one dish that I can eat the whole thing and not feel bad about it. La Comida’s ceviche was very fresh and definitely a must order when you dine here.
If you’re looking for an appetizer that is great to share with the whole table, opt for the beef empanadas. These mexican pastries are filled with ground beef then lightly fried and served with a delicious avocado creme sauce.
The show stopper of lunch was the Arrachera Steak. They took a high grade steak and folded it over melted cheese, garlic butter, poblano peppers, mushrooms, and mexican chimichurri. I really liked this because the steak wasn’t tough like most flank steak served at Mexican Restaurants. It was a lot of food, enough to take home and have for dinner. This Arrachera Steak was served with Elotes which made it that much better.
If you noticed, there wasn’t rice and beans served with the meal. Mario explained that their meals are served with the basics, instead of being forced to eat rice and beans, you’re able to choose what you want from a variety of sides that they offer. I love this concept, as much as I love me some rice and beans, they are just fillers. La Comida offers sides that everybody loves such as Texas Cavier, Papas fritas and Mexican Slaw.
La Comida was absolutely delicious and definitely on top of my list of best Mexican Food Restaurants. If you’re looking for a new place to dine, check them out in Addison. The area has completely boomed and if you haven’t been there in a while, you’re in for a surprise.
La Comida is located at 5100 Beltline Road, #796, Dallas, Tx 75254.
