Comfort food

The dish you see here is known in this restaurant (Fiesta Del Mar Too in Mountain View, California) as 'Great Grandma's Especial'. The main part of the dish is chunks of chicken in "enjococado" sauce.

Of the four dinners I've had on this trip to the Bay Area, I've had this three times. A more satisfying dish you'll not find.

Your right down the road from Google. And only 137 away from me in Sac.

Yup...went to a going away party last night for our admin assistant, and the bar was lousy with Google employees there for happy hour.

I don't think I've been to Sac in about 15 years.

1) How warm/hot was the enjococado sauce?

2) Did it cool off any before it made it's inevitable exit?

I ask because I believe I've had this sauce before... It wasn't too spicy/hot on the way in... however when mixed with large amounts of beer and wine instead of being diluted... well...

It's very mild...doesn't burn on the way out, but eating it 3 or 4 days in a row will turn your crap orange.
