Fiesta Del Mar, Mountain View, California
A restaurant setting like this isn't the type of place that I would normally think of getting Mexican food at (1005 North Shoreline Blvd, 650-965-9354). But I used to like their chicken soup, a light and thin broth that went great with avocado and a squeeze of lime.
We probably should have stuck to that instead of the heavier tomato-based tortilla soup that we got tonight, especially since they didn't provide the entire guajillo pepper like they used to. It was good to try their fresh jumbo shrimp tonight though, with our Diabla version providing enough heat to keep us happy.
