Food tip: Enchiladas Suizas

Mi Casa #2

31 Golden St., New London

Now open seven days a week in the space above the 33 bar, Mi Casa #2 - a sibling to Mi Casa in Norwich - is a blessed newcomer to the New London dining community. Along with the Norwich original and Ortega's in Groton, bonafide Mexican and Tex-Mex are now convenient to just about anyone in the region. A fine starting point in your exploration of #2 would be the Enchiladas Suizas platter ($11.95), which will arrive at your table after you've started out with hot, double-thick tortilla chips and a bowl of sneaky-heat salsa verde. Your choice of flavor-treated beef or marinated chicken breast chunks are then stuffed into two fat corn tortillas, then topped with sour cream, melted queso fresco and more salsa verde. Beautiful - and the generous sides of toothsome rice and authentic refried beans makes the whole thing a vast array of goodness.
