Pura Enchilada..... Lawrenceville

Judging from the location and the restaurants appearance you might be hesitant to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food they were serving so when we started this blog we wanted to make sure we gave it an official review.There are 16 different enchiladas on there menu most of them are delicious and unique.There salsa is slightly Italian tasting with less of a cilantro flavor and more of a tomato base. Over all it is flavorful and refreshing said Melanie aka Julia f**king Child. We started our meal with the queso fundido which was nothing to write home about,you're better off ordering the cheese dip it is cheaper and tastes the same minus the ground chorizo.We ordered three enchiladas one with shrimp and scallops with a creamy herb sauce, a goat cheese stuffed enchilada with a ranchero style sauce, and a pork enchilada with a sweet mole sauce and  poblano cream. Having eaten here before I've previously ordered these and would suggest them for any first timers. The home made tortillas are really what makes this restaurant special so we also ordered the fish tacos as well. The tacos were a little on the small side but were delicious and filling in the end. The fish was cooked perfect and was topped with shredded cabbage, cilantro and chipotle mayo.There Margaritas do the trick, unlike some Mexican restaurants than skimp on the tequila their half pitchers are big and will give you a buzz. Unfortunately each time we've eaten here business seems slow but hopefully more people will give it a try and enjoy it as much as we do.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Pura Enchilada on Urbanspoon
