Anniversary Dinner at Gloria’s
I can hardly believe it! We’ve been married 21 years. Time does fly when you’re having FUN….as the old saying goes!
So, what did we do to celebrate our 21st anniversary? The same thing we do to celebrate ALL our anniversaries (and other special occasions, too). Went OUT to eat!
This year we chose to have our Anniversary dinner at Gloria’s in the Highlands in Arlington.
A few months ago we had the opportunity to visit Gloria’s for the first time. Some very dear friends invited us out to dinner (just the “grown ups”). We decided to try Gloria’s because none of us had been there. My husband and I had considered going there several times, but it seemed like a “special occasion” place and we just hadn’t “gotten around to it”. After the four of us finished our dinner it was UNANIMOUS! We LOVED it! I couldn’t wait to go back!
Gloria’s serves Salvadorian Food. If you’ve never has Salvadorian food it’s probably best to just SHOW you…..
Our Appetizers….yes more than one!
Cheese dip, Tamale, and Pupusa
Chips, Salsa and Bean Dip come complimentary
Tamale…Wrapped in a Banana Leaf
Amazing!!! We shared one. They are HUGE! This was my favorite of the appetizers.
We also shared this. What are Pupusas? Besides YUMMY, it is a handmade corn tortilla stuffed with pork or cheese, or you can have both pork and cheese…which we did. Not like ANY other tortilla you’ve ever had! I Loved these as well.
For my main dish I ordered the Carne Flameada.
Carna Flameada- Translation: Flamed Meat or YUM!
It comes in beef or chicken….I chose beef.
It’s a thin, flavorful, extremely tender steak covered with mushrooms and onions.
Then, to top it all off, they smother it in cheese.
It just doesn’t get much better than that!
My husband ordered the Churrasco Tipico.
Steak, Plantains, Fried Yucca, Argentinean Sausage, Rice and Black Bean Soup
Also VERY Tasty!
And of course we had to get dessert……TWO!
Fried Fruit Wrap with Chocolate, Cinnamon and Ice Cream
And One of My Very Favorite Desserts………
This is how we celebrated twenty-one AMAZING years of marriage!
We HIGHLY recommend Gloria’s. It’s great for any occasion….special or otherwise.
They have locations in the DFW area, Austin and Houston. If you enjoy Latin Cuisine…..You’ll LOVE Gloria’s!
