No Mas Cantina
No Mas Cantina is in Castleberry Hill. It's in a rather large building that also has a Mexican decor shop. It has both indoor and outdoor seating and a very pleasant environment. This view is from the back, where the parking lot is; the restaurant is in stealth mode from the street.
Although i went there with tamales on my mind, their description of the fajitas got my attention. They were very good. The restaurant has a tortilla making machine, which isn't quite the same as having handmade tortillas but so much better than factory-made. These tortillas had the puffiness and tenderness of a fresh tortilla. The meat was succulent.
The true high point was dessert. The cake is chocolate with a touch of pepper. This is a style that I associate strongly with Mexico and I really love. The heat was perfectly done---just enough to accent the chocolate. I saved some for breakfast. What a great way to start the morning.
