[Seoul - Gangnam] Tomatillo Grill

I remember when I was studying abroad in Seoul more than a decade ago, the only places we could get "Mexican" food were Dos Tacos and Tomatillo Grill.

Tomatillo Grill still holds a little place in my heart for being the one place I could get some Tex Mex when I was really craving it. It's weird though, now that I live in America, I haven't had Chipotle in like 6 years, even though I walk past it every day on my way to work, but, for some reason, I was dying for it back in college.

There are plenty of tacos, burritos, and more on the menu. This day, I wanted to try a taco salad. I think it was a fine taco salad and it was lighter than many of the other menu options were. I got mine with fish as the protein. This was kind of a Baja fish taco salad, I guess.

I don't remember why, but my friend decided that a beer flight would be the perfect lunch that day. I mean, I wish I had my friend's confidence, and I was definitely jealous, but I am scared of waitstaff judging me, especially in Korea where I'm trying to blend in, so I went with a regular food option.

I ordered this margarita and I do not recommend. I don't know what possessed me to order this atrocity of a margarita, but here it is in all it's unnatural blue green glory. I won't even tell you what it is.
