Yesterday was Teresa's birthday but she was too busy for us to go out. That was just as well since we like to have Mexican on her birthday, it is Cinco de Mayo after all, and Mexican restaurants are always busy then. We decided to go out the next day and there'd be no crowds. After deliberating where to go, we decided on Maya Cafe and Cantina in Fishkill, a place we've been to before and liked.
It wasn't crowded at five o'clock, but by the time we left there were a few people in there. We were seated right away and or waiter, Carlos, was very attentive and helpful. We both asked him for suggestions and he was spot on.
I was deciding between two dishes and I asked Carlos whether to go with the one I liked, or try something new. I followed his recommendation and got the shrimp tacos, just what I was craving, and Teresa got the three enchiladas. Both dishes were just right and delicious. I even had a Corona and ordered desert.
Note the top photo which is a chimi-banana. That's cheesecake and a banana wrapped in a tortilla and fried golden brown, then dresses with caramel and chocolate with whipped cream. Five bucks and worth every penny. It was a nice mix of hot from the fried and cold from the banana and cheesecake with just the right amount of sweet.
