As I mentioned in my last post, Austin has been going to physical therapy twice a week. His sessions are always around 4 o'clock which makes a great dinnertime. Across the street from the therapy office is a restaurant called Flautlan.
They specialize in all things "Flauta". A flauta is similar to a big taquito. A tortilla stuffed with some kind of goodness and salsa on top.
We went to this place for the first time about a month ago and it's been a favorite ever since. This place is so good!!
You can get your little fried taco (aka "flauta") filled with potato, chorizo, chicken, cochinita pibil, and more. My favorite is the fish flauta drizzled in red sauce.
Their specialty this fall is the chile en nogada flauta. Puebla is famous for its chile en nogada!
This is what it usually looks like -
This has pineapple and ground beef in it and is topped with a creamy sweet sauce that has pine nuts and cinnamon it it. As you can see, there is a generous sprinkle of pomegranate.
This is Flautlan's twist on the traditional Poblano dish -
You can get your flauta covered in red sauce, green sauce, or beans.
Mom and I had dinner at this place this week and we decided to go all out and try different things for the sake of the blog.
This time, Mom got her flautas in soup.
After the main course, we ordered the dessert flautas. This one was called the Carlos V. If you are from Mexico, you know what that is!
The Carlos V had banana in it and warm, gooey chocolate.
We also tried the one with "ate" (pronounce ah-tay) and cream cheese. This was my favorite! Ate is a fruit paste, almost the consistency of jello but more dense and more tasty. Like a firm jam!
Yessssss, yes, YES!
