Chef Mimmo cooks up some delicious food for Atlanta & Co. host Christine Pullara for 50th B-Day on 11 Alive
We had an amazing fiesta celebration! Thank you to all that attended our party and a special thank you to all our customers who continue to make our days more enjoyable.
If you’re looking for a great place for your Cinco de Mayo celebration, you might want to check out Red Pepper Taqueria. We had lunch there and it was a blast! I hear they are going to have a real party with live music and they’re pulling out all the stops for their Cinco de Mayo party. The dining room is large, but the place to be will be the outdoor seating area so get here early! The band gets cranked up at 4:30pm.
We got started with Ceviche Blanco, its made with red snapper along with a citrus salsa that has a strong lime flavor. Angel thought of all the ceviche we’ve had, and he ranked the Red Pepper Taqueria ceviche his favorite! I thought the flavor was excellent, but I liked the fact it was served with fried plantains! Very unique and totally awesome!
We decided to indulge in our family style eating method so we each get to try everything. We ordered the Chicken Enchiladas, that was served with a diced tomato salsa and mexican rice. We also order the Al Pastor, a braised pork taco served with pickled onions and grilled pineapple; Pescado Frito, a fried fish taco with slaw, corn and sliced radish; and a Carne Asada, which is a beef taco that is skirt steak, cilantro, and pickled onions. The flavor of each of the Red Pepper Taqueria dishes was excellent. The fish and the pork tacos were great in flavor but were messy because of the liquid dripping out of them. Be careful if you order these so it doesn’t drip all over your clothes.
Red Pepper Taqueria: Revelers can take advantage of all-day specials including $2 smoked beef tacos, $3 Tecate, $4 Dos XX Lager as well as the full dinner menu and drink menu from 4 p.m. to close. Read more about Red Pepper Taqueria’s bottomless mimosas here.
