Droolworthy Green Chile Pork at Verde

Categories: Laudig

I swear I wasn't trying to make official business out of First Friday, but I was at Paulina Miller Gallery -- right next door to brand-new Mexican joint Verde -- and I was so hungry I was starting to get a little "hangry." So I popped by Verde for a quick, cheap dinner.

At that point, the place had been open less than a week (I rarely visit such new restaurants), but I got a good impression. Service was friendly and prompt, and the green chile pork was succulent, served with tomato and tomatillo salsas.

I also enjoyed the moist, fluffy rice and cheese-flecked beans. Good stuff, and reasonably priced.

My only complaint was with the strawberry agua fresca. I drank it too fast and wished for a refill (not really much of a gripe, though, given the two-dollar price tag).

Stop by and check out the ladies making tortillas in the front window. There's no doubt that Verde's tortillas are as fresh as can be.
