I think I probably would have never gone to Tehuitzingo if it was not a suggestion from one of my blog readers who always had great comments or suggestions to my posts. Yes, from the outside, you just see the name, Tehuitzingo Deli and Grocery and would never guess that this place serves great food at reasonable prices, using fresh ingredients. I mean, I had to verify again on my phone the name of address and, when confirmed, entered in that small place.

Right there, you see their market, selling a bunch of Mexican products, from hot sauce to tortillas or candy.

Then, in the back, is the counter where you will order your food. We were the only ones, early last Saturday, the city still recovering from the first snow of the season. After we ordered, we sat on the stools, decorated with roosters, and did not wait long before our food came.

We started off with a side of guacamole and chips. Pretty good, although not the best guacamole ever, the tortilla chips seem to be homemade.

Then, we got quesadillas. Cheese for Jodi:

Cheese and chicken for me. It was made with a tortilla folded over Oaxaca cheese. I loved it: the tortilla itself was delicious, filled with lots of cheese, and the chicken very good, well cooked, not dry at all.

We also had tacos pescado, made with tilapia fish. It was just ok, the tacos being bland and in need of hot sauce...

Overall, we had a nice unexpected lunch at Tehuitzingo Deli and Grocery. The food is good
And cheap. It is definitely a place I would go back to. 

Enjoy (I did)!
