Pretty Lucky Dessert

I like burritos. Yesterday I decided to try Lucky’s Mexican Spot, located at 225 South Street, where I’ve been a few times before, and found it pretty good. I usually stick to some type of burrito, but in my Mexican food search, I am always looking for two other things: tamales and plantains. The minute I walked into Lucky’s, I smelled the plantains. Pleased. Very pleased. I ordered and ate my chicken burrito. No complaints, and I discovered the nice sauce they put on all the tables was very delicious, as well. The burrito was unadorned, just set in the middle of the plate, and nothing fancy.

My surprise, and “the best part of my day, so far,” was when I received my dessert. See, the plantains were barely mentioned on the menu, which is a little confusing. When I asked questions, I was also not really getting answers. There was a language barrier, I think. So, I took my chances and ordered the only thing I found mentioning plantains, on the back of the menu. “Plantains with sweet cream sauce.” I pictured a plain dish of plantains with a little bowl of cream on the side. Nah. Instead, I got a white plate, garnished with a chocolate drizzle, containing a fried tortilla bowl filled with fried plantains, peaches, strawberries, and also drizzled with the “sweet cream sauce.” So beautiful. So tasty. So unexpected. Yay, Lucky’s!
