El Asadero, long beloved by those of us with asbestos tongues and fajita joneses, is under new management. But thats not the biggest news of late to come out of the Northside Mexican restaurant.
Its about their salsa. I have some bad news.
After a trip last week to satisfy my issues/cravings, our dinner party realized very quickly that the killer kick was missing from the restaurants salsa.
Our new waitress helpfully volunteered that the jalapeno crop the restaurant is buying is unfortunately missing its heat.
We were disappointed as we munched away on the chips. And while it didnt stop us from ordering a side of their terrific guacamole plus the combination fajitas (our favorite in the city), a pall was cast on our meal.
Call us crazy -- and despite the brutal temperatures outside -- our salivary glands desperately missed that otherworldly, fiery, frenzied eating experience (especially if you order the fajitas with the grilled jalapenos).
The restaurants not sure when theyll be able to access a better jalapeno product. But when they do, they say theyll go back to their standby spicy recipe.
Some things never change.
