I love to try new food and new places to eat. So when I heard about Karmadillos, a Southwestern Mexican Cafe in the southwest corner of downtown, I thought I would give it a try. I went there on a Friday work week to have lunch and I thought their pork rice bowl was pretty amazing. The cafe itself is pretty small but they set up a nice dining area outside which makes you enjoy a hearty meal with a spectacular view of the mountains.
It is located on Reeder's Alley, an oldest piece of early Helena. The walk to the restaurant was actually quite interesting because to get to the place, you have to walk through an historic alley with pathway that resembles some kind of cobblestone. For some reason, it gave me the feeling that I was walking on Diagon Alley in Harry Potter books, lol! Alright, I don't know why I said that, lol! Going back to the restaurant I was talking about.
It was late summer when I first ate there and I must say the wonderful view adds to a nice dining experience.
I think the menu is pretty much affordable. I have heard some great things about their rice bowls so that's why I tried them first. And I like it.
The first time I went there, I ate alone but since I like the place, I thought I'd invite hubby for a lunch date on one of his Fridays off. It's actually funny since we have not had much of dates ever since we had Caleb so it was kinda a weird but nice feeling to be able to finally go out and have brief but memorable dates again.
Oh wait, I guess I must have liked this place so much because I went back for the third time yesterday to have lunch, lol! I thought I'd go all out this time and ordered their dundee rice bowl with beef, pork and chicken. That was awesome! I felt like a tick after, lol! It's a shame that I had to go back to work and felt worthless since all I wanted to do was crawl under my desk and take a nap, lol! That was how full I was. Then when I went home I found out hubby stopped at Taco John's after work because he was craving for Karmadillos rice bowl and thought he'd find one there, tsk! Of course not! So he ended up getting some tacos instead. Du'h! So imagine how jealous he was when I told him I had lunch at Karmadillos that day. Haha!
