Mi Pueblo

Make sure to check here for more Cleveland posts

Mi Pueblo is a Mexican place that we had been meaning to try for some time. On Sunday we decided to give it a try since we weren’t really in the mood for anything too fancy.

Located just down the street from University Hospital, Mi Pueblo serves your typical Mexican food. Walking in it looks like most any Mexican restaurant you’ll find in Cleveland.

The chips and salsa were decent, but the next bit was more amusing than anything. After we ordered, the waitress put down in front of us my Corona and…….chicken noodle soup!?!? Whaaaaat??? I like chicken noodle soup, especially when it’s complimentary and cold as balls outside. However, chicken noodle soup at a Mexican place was a first for me.

Regina ordered the Shrimp Fajitas. They came with onions, peppers and the standard sides of rice and guacamole. She asked to switch out the rice for refried beans with cheese and they gladly obliged. I had the Pollo a la Plancha which was grilled chicken marinated in guajillo pepper sauce and served with grilled onions, rice, charros, pico de gallo, and guacamole. I like spicy food and this certainly fit the bill. It wasn’t what I call topical heat (like a spice rub or a sauce with a bunch of hot stuff in it), it was a developed heat that I could taste throughout the chicken. I liked it.

As far as Cleveland Mexican food goes, it’s a slightly above average place with typical prices. If you’re looking for a cheap night out and your on this side of town, it’s is a viable option.
