Las Tinajas

June 19, 2010

I’ve been sick since friday, ate some foul chicken that had me all fucked up and dehydrated. By saturday morning I’d dropped 6lbs. As I was in pretty dire need of food so I decided to walk into this NicaraguanĀ restaurant, Las Tinajas, on like mission at 20th. I’d walked by it plenty of times but never fucked with it.

Ordered the “Las Tinajas” combo plate and the mountain of food pictured above is what they gave me. Seeing as how I hadn’t eaten in a few days and my stomach was still pretty tender I only got about a third of the way through the plate. Anymore and I’m sure I would have taken a shit right there in the middle of the restaurant.

The plate consists of beef, pork, rice & beans, fried cheese, plantains, fried plantains, and some coleslaw/salad hybrid. I think the brick of deep fried cheese is really asshole in this plate, I barely ate any of it, it’s just so much of a fucking gut bomb that I couldn’t handle taking the whole thing down.
