Costillas en Salsa Verde

The costillas en salsa verde from La Nopalera was delicious. That's ribs in green sauce. There's also some squash cooked with the ribs.


As you might expect, it comes with rice and beans. The cost? $7.00


La Nopalera isn't really a restaurant. It's a Mexican grocery. They do have a table or two and a counter, though. It's a wonderful place with great home style cooking. The specials, like this, are available for lunch.


**edit: It's gone now.

    @misanthrp: I was just thinking that while this tasted amazing, it lacked color. I've gone here a few times to get lunch and I've never been disappointed. I just wish they had something other than rice and beans and tortillas in addition to their specials.

    The last time I was there, they had just roasted some broccoli. I was offered a piece, too. I don't know where it was going, though. It was too late for lunch and I don't speak enough Spanish to carry on a conversation.
