Authentic Mexican Street Food Experience
Hey guys and happy Wednesday! I had such an amazing weekend resting and finally catching up on the sleep that I desperately needed. There's nothing better than a great food find, especially when it deals with tacos. It was Cinco De Mayo last weekend, and what better way to celebrate than experiencing a TACOrific authentic Mexican restaurant!
I was so excited to get invited to experience The Invicto, which is located in Naperville, conveniently right off the highway. I think Mexican food is pretty high on my list of favorites so my expectations are always high.
When my husband and I walked inside we were greeted not only by the colorful decor but, with the delicious smells of chorizo, tacos, and quesadillas, it's like I died and went to heaven.
The staff was extremely friendly and it simply reiterated the idea of going out and having a family atmosphere or eating with family away from home. I love when restaurants portray that ora.
I didn't even know where to start so the staff had us try all the tacos on the menu. They were so beautifully decorated and made. The tacos included: Carne Asada, Pollo Asado, Arabes, Chorizo Verde, Elotes, and Aguacate Fritos. I don't even think I could pick a favorite, everything was so fresh and delicious. Also, all their tortillas are freshly made you simply cannot find that too often.
I am a huge buritto person so I had to try the Cali burrito, which had fries!!! Yes fries, inside, along with steak, guacamole, queso, onions, tomatoes, cheese, and sour cream. I mean can you think of anything better than that? I am no food expert, by any means, but I think even Gordon Ramsey would be proud of this brilliant food masterpiece.
Aside from the amazing food, atmosphere, and staff, I learned about their mission as well. We all know that I love giving back it's something I am so passionate about. Invicto goes by the one feeds two motto. What does that mean? Basically, when you buy a meal from there, a child in the developing world receives a school meal as well. That is such a beautiful thing because not many restaurants do that. Any person that would like to join this cause can do so by visiting their amazing restaurant.
It was actually nice during the weekend, finally, right? So my husband and I finished our delicious lunch with some nice cold paletas. It seriously was a perfect Cinco De Mayo weekend.
Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog. I try to keep you guys updated with all the cool food, location, and clothing finds so I love how you follow along with me through this journey. Remember to smile!
Until next time,
