I went to a meeting at Poncho’s Grill on Strawberry yesterday. It’s this new-ish place that I wouldn’t have seen at all because I avoid Strawberry to avoid the congestion and construction surrounding the Strawberry @ Pasadena Blvd. intersection.
The place itself is not bad.
The meeting included a buffet-style hors d’eavures. There was a selection of salsas. One container, which held a safe-looking avocado-type salsa, was simply labeled “House.” I made a big mistake and poured generously on my food without tasting it first.
One bite and my mouth was on fire. I couldn’t taste the food, couldn’t drink enough or eat enough chips to make it stop.
So you’ve been warned… beware the green stuff.
