Day 3 of our staycation included:
- Morning at the MN Science Museum.
- Boca Chica for lunch. We weren’t terribly impressed with Boca Chica. It hadn’t come recommended by anyone and didn’t have stellar reviews. The three of us split an order of chicken flautas and a pick-two lunch of a beef and bean tostada plus a chicken soft taco. Each plate comes with your choice of Spanish rice (which had peas and carrots in it…strange…) OR black beans OR refried beans. I think it’s the first Mexican place I’ve ever eaten at that didn’t give you both rice and beans. The service was poor. We had to ask for our beverages twice and also had to ask for the free chips and salsa. The flautas were decent—covered in Mexican crema, cilantro and guacamole. The tostada and taco were fine, but nothing above average. I’d give it probably two out of five stars.
- National Night Out for supper. This is often the only time of year we get to talk to our neighbors, but unfortunately we couldn’t stay long…
- Perkins with out-of-town (as in California out-of-town) friends for dessert.
- A cost of $36.
