Birthday Dinner (Part 1) @ La Sandia

For my birthday, I met up with my mom at Tysons Corner Mall so we could grab a bite to eat and get iPhones!!!! I decided to go to La Sandia because I am always in the mood for some fresh guac and salsa. See my previous post of happy hour with the ladies.

As always the Guacamole ~$10 is fresh and made to order. This is one of my favorite places to get guacamole in the area (I am always welcome to suggestions for where to get some good, fresh guac).
The free chips and salsa = amazing.
We both wanted a lighter meal (after unlimited chips and salsa it is necessary) so we both ordered salads. My mom got the Grilled Salmon Salad $15.95 served with radish, green onion, cilantro, tomato, avocado, tortilla strips and a habanero-orange dressing. This was an OK salad, I didn't think all of the flavors came through enough but the salmon was cooked well.
I got the La Sandia Chopped Salad $11.95 with Steak +$2. The salad has bacon, roasted corn, tomato, black beans (I got mine without...gross), panela cheese (not sure what this is, but it was good), chickpeas, green onion, egg and an avocado vinaigrette. Although my photography was not at its best here, the meal was pretty good. I enjoyed all the flavors of my salad and the steak was a nice addition to the meal.
I mainly come to this place to get Fresh Guacamole, chips and salsa, and delicious drinks-these 3 items never fail to impress. As far as their food goes, they are decent, nothing too spectacular. I usually just prefer to get guac and just stuff myself with chips and salsa.
