I’m hungry and I don’t feel like driving far. I also don’t want to eat fast food, what options do I have left?! Well, it’s lunch time so lunch time specials, here I come! For anyone who has a hearty appetite, Aztec D’Oro is a great spot. Aztec D’Oro is located in the Hunter’s Creek area on South Orange Blossom Trail. I haven’t been here that frequently but I’ve always enjoyed the food. Today was no exception.
As I got seated, the server Natalia, promptly greeted me in Spanish and English. She was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. The decor reminded me of when I was in San Antonio, TX. I start to browse the menu searching for something I hadn’t tried before. As I continue looking, I already start eating some of the complimentary chips and salsa. Usually, the salsa the Mexican restaurants bring out are pretty mediocre but this had a hint of a slightly sweet and a roasted pepper flavor. Needless to say, I ate a ton of chips.
Ah, I see soup! Love me some chowdah, although it’s not the typical kind. “Azteca Diablo Shrimp and Tequila Chowder”. Don’t mind if I do! It had a whole bunch of awesome in it. Shrimp, chorizo, cilantro, green chiles, and jalapenos were the key players. Definitely something to try although I will say that the shrimp in the soup was overcooked. Aside from that fact, the soup was delicious. Very hearty and the size portion was a lot bigger than I anticipated. At first I thought they accidentally gave me a bowl until I saw another customer order the bowl of soup. Oh my. Also, beware of the super hot plates!
