In which we hit the big (blog) time on Eating in Madison A to Z

A few weeks ago Mrs. Q, CJ, and I had the great pleasure of eating dinner with Nichole and JM, the alphabetically omnivorous proprietors of Eating in Madison A to Z. Their report on our meal at Oaxacan newcomer La Mestiza is up now. I stand by it, except for one thing — they call the pickled vegetables “delightfully hot” while I would go with something more like “too spicy for anyone who orders their Thai food medium or below.”

Another nice feature of their review: it taught me the word molcajete. I think of myself as a man who knows his guacamole, but this was new vocab for me.

I’ll be reading the rest of the “La”s carefully — I still haven’t found a real standout Mexican restaurant in Madison, though Tacqueria El Pastor is certainly satisfactory.

    I had been looking for the review ever since you told me that you were going to dinner with them. I sent the link to several people and was like “I know one of the people on Madison A to Z!”

    The pleasure was all ours! (And I confess, I looked up “molcajete” – didn’t know the word before, either.)
