I have never been to
The Carne Adovada are large chunks of slow braised pork topped with a red chile sauce, a very light sprinkling of cheese and green onions. They are accompanied by rice and beans. The pork is fork tender, moist and juicy while the red chile sauce adds a nice amount of heat. The beans and rice are your standard fare, although the rice was particularly salty.
The Stuffy Dinner comes with slow cooked pork stuffed into a large sopapilla, topped with green chiles, cheese and green onions. The sopapilla is a form of Indian fry bread. These are pillowy soft and, on their own, taste like a donut aching for some sugar. Although the pork is very tender, it was a little dry. The Stuffy Dinner come with two sopapillas on the side. The sopapilla are served with honey, if you choose to top them with it turning it into a simple dessert.
For a little change of pace compared to your standard Mexican restaurant, Anita’s is not a bad option, but certainly not worth a special trip.
