Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican celebration directly translated “fifth of May,” is just one of several new dishes offered at El Campesino on McKnight Road. Though I don’t believe there is any direct correllation to the holiday, I ordered this entree as PghTasteBudA and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary where we had our first date. Though we didn’t indulge in a pitcher of margaritas this time, the meal was a filling, delicious way to celebrate our occasion.
I can easily simplify the Cinco de Mayo into a “cut your own meat strips” fajita/taco dish with both chicken and beef. The unique treat was the fried jalapeño which did add a nice kick in the heat category. As you can see from the picture, it was a lot of food, which I did not finish, but it was a solid menu option.
