Peppers - Pacific Grove, CA

If you read this blog regularly you know I can eat fish, soup and Mexican probably every meal for the rest of my life and be perfectly fine. Through an Internet tip I came across Peppers MexiCali Restaurant in Pacific Grove. Seated quickly we were greeted with a basket of warm chips and two types of salsa. I preferred the green one, yum tomatillos!

For an appetizer we choose a Stuffed Pepper. An Ancho stuffed with cheese and not cooked through completely was what we got. I feel anything stuffed with melted cheese is wonderful so I ate the whole thing!

I saw the the Mahi Mahi Yucatan on the menu and decided that is what I had to have! Chiles, Citrus, Cilantro, Tomatoes and Annatto is what was described as what was cooked with the fish. Sounded delish! It was horrible! I usually find something positive to say but this was awful. I seriously could not stomach it. The waiter took it away after a few bites.

My Mom ordered the Ahi Fish Tacos and I felt they were a little sad too. We felt jipped! So what did we do?....

You must try the Blood Orange Margaritas at Peppers! Such a tasty treat! We should have ordered these from the beginning!

Since we didn't eat our entrees we were still hungry... So we ordered a Carne Asada Enchilada and a Cheese Enchilada. My mom didn't care for the sauce but I didn't mind it!

Alright so here's the deal, while at Peppers start off with Blood Orange Margaritas, bring a fun person to have a conversation with and stay away from the seafood! Enjoy your weekend!

I really love Mexican food, too. Funnily enough there is a small chain of Peppers Mexican Grill restaurants here in northern Florida/southern Georgia, too.
