Of course, like 90% of my 'favorites' from back home they aren't here in Chicago (this chain is lots of places, but not here!) - read good mexican. So last week after my Mom went back to California to visit my Aunt and then proceeded to tell me all about her food adventures - I had find a way to make my favorite dish!!!!
It is the Browned Butter with Mizithra Cheese! (Well, if we are going to get technical, I always order the manager's Special which you pick two sauces - Browned Butter and Meat sauce please). Thanks to my good friend google (why I didn't think of this before, I'm not sure) I found this recipe, and off I went!!!
I kid you not, it tastes EXACTLY like the restaurant....beyond delish!!!! (And no I didn't eat what I dished out, my eyes were waaaay to big, but I had lunch the next day!!!!)
Here we were making it (Mom and I had a little cooking date!):
Browning the butter, by far the part which scared me the most...
surprisingly easy & smelled beyond good!
Do you have any restaurant favorites from your childhood?
