5 De Mayo At El Novillero Restaurant

IT WAS ON A VERY SPECIAL DAY WHEN WE VISITED  THIS MEXICAN RESTAURANT.. 5 DE MAYO, so it is called... 5th of May is a very special day for the Mexicans.  Cinco de Mayo means Fifth of May, an annual celebration held on this day, to commemorate the Mexican Army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5 1862, according to Wikipedia.

We went for our lunch at El Novillero Restaurant, known as one of the best Mexican restaurants here in Sacramento.  Never knowing what to expect, I was fascinated with the ambience of the place, it looks so Mexican and Spanish upon entering.  We waited for a good 15 minutes before we could be seated, there was even a wedding taking place inside the restaurant... A very nice experience indeed.
The history of the restaurant...

From the place where we were seated...
Celebration going on...
Okay...what to order? All looks foreign to me....
I think I will just sit back and relax....
And when they arrived... I just eat what is being served....
Looks familiar... 
Yes, it reminded me of some Indian food back in Malaysia...
Yes, I took a bit of everything!!
Mexican beer...
Margarita... blends well with the food we ordered...
Marking our presence....
Indeed a very nice experience with the food, environment and of course, the company!

  4. The decor has an old world feel to it. The food looks good, I like Mexican food - I mean those Tex-Mex fare that are served at Chillis.
