We lunched yesterday at La Patrona Mexican Restaurant in Sherwood Park.

This was our second visit, and once again, we were impressed with the cuisine.

We arrived early for the lunch sitting.  La Patrona opens at 11:30 AM, and when we arrived at 11:45, there were already a few couples occupying tables.  By time we ordered drinks and began to peruse the lunch menu, the restaurant had filled to about 70-percent capacity, nice for a Tuesday lunch hour.

Ingrid ordered the Hugo Taco ($14), two corn tortillas with smoked sirloin steak grilled, homemade chorizo, onions, and jalapeno peppers.  It was superb, with rich, full beef flavour, and Ingrid and I agreed this dish was much more enjoyable than Enchiladas De Pollo ($19) I ordered.

The Enchilada De Pollo arrived piping hot; so hot, I had to wait impatiently a few minutes before I could dig in.  The serving is large; I ended up boxing part of my lunch to take home.  When I ordered the dish, our server asked ‘how hot’ I wanted the enchiladas.  I asked for ‘medium’ and even it was a little spicy for my palate.  Still, the chicken  enchiladas were packed full of pulled chicken, and covered with melted cheese, sour cream and fresh avocado.

Overall, it was a satisfying lunch, and we’d recommend it to anybody who wants fine Mexican cuisine.
