Walking up the Ancho tonight we turned right onto Pila Seca and came across La Cocina at Pila Seca #1.
We were greeted by the most beautiful smile belonging to Antonio, our waiter. That began our pleasant experience at this lovely little gem of a restaurant. The place is extremely clean, decorated in blue/white tiles with lots of greenery.
We ordered the flavorful guacamole (very good with tomatoes), the sopesitos (thick corn tortillas with beans, lettuce and queso fresca). Truthfully I would skip the sopesitos as I've had better. We ordered one entree of the shrimp diablo to split and asked for medium spice. I can tolerate a large amount of heat and the sauce just had a touch of spiciness to it along with a bit of orange flavor. The shrimp were extremely large and cooked perfectly. Accompanying the entree was a mixed green salad with tomatoes and black sesame seeds and a small cruet of honey/citrus dressing along with white rice.
I have found the people in San Miguel to be more than welcoming. We spent quite some time speaking with our waiter, Antonio. He practiced his English and we learned some Spanish as well.
All in all, just a delightful evening and I can't wait to try out their prix fix breakfasts.
