Vuelve la Vida: Tasty Authentic Mexican

· Posted Tuesday May 23, 2006 by jamie

We have literally been hearing about Vuelve la Vida for years, but we have this habit of returning to our favorite places ad nauseum, so somehow Tacos Guaymas at South 38th and Pine, which if you’re keeping score is quite excellent, kept winning out over trying out somewhere new. Last night, we finally broke the cycle and made it to Vuelve la Vida. Mmmmm, tasty.

The atmosphere was pretty basic, a bit of the hole-in-the-wall sort of feel, but comfortable nonetheless. Our server was very friendly as well.

There was all sorts of stuff on the menu that sounded a bit sketchy for my tastes. Stuff along the lines of tripe and goat meat. But as with any good Mexican place, I took this as a good sign about overall food authenticity, and started looking at things with chicken.

It is prominently posted that this place does not serve chips and salsa, not sure why. But it didn’t matter, as our entrees were plenty big to fill us up. I had some great chicken enchiladas suizas, and Melissa went for the tamales with a side of rice and beans. Literally everything on our plates was wonderful.

We’ll definitely be working this place into the rotation, while continuing to keep Tacos Guaymas on the list…

Vuelve la Vida is at 5310 Pacific Ave.
