Yummy Mexican: Miguelito’s, Coronado

22 Mar

On Coronado Island near San Diego, Miguelito’s is a smaller cafe around the corner from its big brother, Miguel’s Cocina. They have similar menus, but little Miguelito’s is cozier, like a homey Mexican cafe.

Arriving around 1 PM on a Saturday afternoon, we ran into coworkers dining on Miguelito’s sidewalk patio. They loved the food, so we decided to give it a try. We sat inside, where most tables were filled. To drink, I had the red sangria made with blackberry brandy. My boyfriend had a classic margarita, which came in a cute little shaker, enough for a bit more than one glass.

On my way out, I snapped this photo of fresh corn tortillas being made in the open kitchen area near the restaurant entrance.
