This week’s fashionplate takes us to a place with my favorite summertime drinks- margaritas at a new Hell Kitchens tex mex place- El Original. Upon meeting my bestie here the space is huge and not crowded at all. Of course we started with margaritas on the rocks and my friend got a a Mexican coke too. We split the happy hour trio of queso, guac and salsa. The queso was solid, the guacamole could’ve been spicier but was a good starter. My bestie went for the chicken enchiladas while I went for the beef with extra queso on top. Can you tell I love cheese yet? Both enchiladas were solid but not anything amazing. The rice and beans were standard sides but didn’t stand out.
Now on to the fashion part of the fashionplate. The place is huge so it wasn’t very crowded. There were mostly tourists and a few locals/people who work in the area, so dress veered towards casual or work attire. See how I rocked our Farrah knit romper below.
