It's been quite some time since we have made a post on blog. I know, I know, you missed reading all of our delicious details about the food that we go out and get. But the silence has come to an end! So what restaurant am I going to talk about today? Milagros. It's a nice mom n pop joint up in Orem, more specifically it is located 970 West 800 North Orem UT.
What To Expect When You Walk In/Sit Down:
Spanish music, Spanish art on the walls, amazing Latino styled glasses, free chips/salsa.
What We Ordered:
Chicken chimichanga with re-fried beans and sweet rice.
What Our Mouths Experienced:
My personal favorite thing about chimichangas is the crunchy-ness the you can get on the edge of tortilla due to deep fried awesome-ness. But sadly to say our chimichanga didn't have it. Yet that is the only "bad" thing, or shall I say "critique" that I could place upon that chicken chimichanga. As you can see from the picture the portions are large and in charge. The chicken was tender, guacamole and sour cream were great, rice was cooked all the way; all around it was just a good plate of food. Definitely large enough to split between two people (trust me, that's what we did).
The chimichanga was 14$, so if you are wanting a cheaper lunch then perhaps this place isn't the place for you. I personally didn't feel bad paying 14$ for a chimichanga because the portions were huge, it was pretty good, and I split half of it with another person.
Good place, good food, definitely worth giving this place a try.

The sign above the cash register says "Fresh, Local, made from scratch" I think this is a general statement, and not referring to all of the items on the menu.
I wasn't completely blown away by the place, and I thought there was a lot of filler greens on one of the sandwiches. Overall, I liked the place and think that I'll be back. It has some great ambiance and I love the outdoor seating.

Any who, Thai Ruby is located just beneath our restaurant, and we have never tried it. We figured it was high time we gave them a whirl.
I would really like to go back and try their mango sticky rice for dessert. I hear it is a little piece of heaven.

There is a neat vibe to the place, a great deal could be the fact that one whole wall is a chalkboard with the menu on it. Cub (the owner) was working while we were there, and i noticed a chef working that I have seen working at Communal in the past. So even if Cub can't cook, he sure dud hire some people that can.
It's just a fun, little, convenient place. I'll be back for sure. (oh and it's one of those places that keep everything fresh and don't use can openers)

I really wasn't expecting much from the place due to the ratings on yelp.com and Urbanspoon.com but I was honestly surprised.
This is the part where I'm supposed to tell you my conclusion about the visit i.e. if you should go or not. However, I have found that I'm respecting the opinions of bloggers and self-proclaimed "food critics" less and less. So just read my restaurant review and know that this is my experience and opinion. The food might not really be that great and I just liked the owner, who knows! You sure don't! So in the words of Geordi La Forg "You don't have to take my word for it." . . . yeah, he'll always be Geordi to me!

Go, check it out! It's not expensive and it's a fun "off the beaten path" kind of place. Not something you would expect from an old gas station. (Side not: I got mine to go)

Menage is a band from Canada that is funding their own tour through Canada and the United States. Seriously, through! from LA to NY, Menage is hitting it all. If you ever get the chance to host a show or see a show with Menage, do it! They do a great job working the crowd and they are just awesome people. bElla says that they are so nice because they are Canadian, but all the same they are really great! They even made up a birthday song for my mom. . . on the spot! (They played on mom's birthday) A lovely lady from the Awful Waffle says "they must be legit, they have piercings and tattoos!" With or without piercings and tattoos, they brought down the house! We even had a scout from Sammy's try and get them to play at their venue the next time they are in town.
Look out MTV! Menage is taking North America by storm. Our staff all bough albums and T-shirts, I the rest of them aren't wearing their shirts today, because I know I sure am!
