For authentic Mexican fare, La Cocina Mexicana is the place to be. Located in the small town of Dixon, an hour drive from Sacramento, this restaurant will not only satisfy your taste buds, but also, with its cozy atmosphere composed of beautifully carved and painted tables, chairs, and wall art, will be a feast for your eyes. Created by the owner’s husband, these artfully made colorful pieces are a beautiful compliment to the flavorful and bold dishes that are served here.
From salsa and chips to mole and hearty dishes made using recipes passed down from the owner’s mother, dining at La Cocina Mexicana will be a memorable experience. Here is what I had for dinner:
Estrella Jalisco – an authentic Mexican beer.
Salsa and Chips.
Verde Chicken Salad – pan seared yellow and green squash, carrots, bell peppers, onion, broccoli, and mushrooms topped with chicken breast and black beans.
Two Enchiladas – beef enchiladas served with mole and a side of rice and beans.
A display of chilly sauces – every chilly lovers dream.
Following are the beautiful pieces made by the owner’s husband.
Friendly and accommodating staff makes the dining experience at this family run restaurant so much more enjoyable. This is definitely a place to come back to. Happy travels!
