Raphael’s Mexican Restaurante, 02/09/2015


When you first eat their salsa you taste the tomato, then slowly the heat picks up a couple seconds later.  It is a nice kick without overwhelming you.  Their chicken tomato soup was almost a stew, with more vegetables and chicken than I’ve ever had in a tortilla soup, which I found enjoyable.  They even put chopped fresh avocado on top, cheese, rice and tortilla chips on the side.  Their torilla chips were warm and very thin, I enjoyed them but I think they could have used an extra sprinkle of salt.  The beef enchiladas were what I was looking for, with the common tex mex flavors you expect, but they offer different sauces you can top your enchiladas with.  I went with the chili con queso.   I liked the atmosphere which includes a bar in the back, neutral colors, and art decorating the walls.  Comfortable atmosphere that I would come back to again.
