You know the beloved game “Clue?” Who was your favorite character to play? Well, if you said Mr. Green, you’ll be pleased to know there is an unofficial counterpart to the mysterious character that comes in the form of a taco – Mrs. Green. She may not murder, but she will make a scene in the dining room.
Found at The Fold Botanas & Bar, Mrs. Green is chock full of refried black beans, cheese, lettuce, avocado, pico, spicy ranchero and queso fresco on a soft corn tortilla. True to the name, the taco was indeed green upon arrival with the top layer of lettuce and chunks of avocado peeking through.
All the flavors together were definitely a trip for the tastebuds. Between the beans and pico, there was a fairly good balance of textures. There was plenty of avocado to get a mouthful with each bite. The cheese did well at breaking up the vegetable flavors and giving a complexity to the menu item.
For a punchier taste that resonates, I would ask for extra spicy ranchero or another salsa to pair with the taco. A la carte, the taco has fresh flavors that work well together, but I personally would like a bit more bite.
The Fold is not a stranger to variety with around ten tacos on their menu catering to all dietary needs. Get a three taco plate and build your meal how you want. Maybe Diablo Shrimp in the pool with a fork?
