Danny and I decided to grab dinner at Cozymels, a Mexican restaurant out on Long Island. We used to frequent this restaurant often when we were still in college but we haven’t been back in years! After shopping for the holidays, we hit up this restaurant. My favorite memories was in the beginning of our relationship. We went there with my best friend and Danny and I literally wrestled over the check. Danny also told me that him and his family have a tradition of stealing something from the restaurant (don’t worry. They have dried peppers/lemons out on display in the lobby. Nobody stole dinnerware or utensils.). I stole a lime and left it in our fridge in our dorm room and forgot about it when we left for winter break. When we came back, the lime grew mold all over it! Not sure why that’s 1 of my favorite memories hahahhahaa.
Anywho, they brought out a bowl of chips and salsa (really good!). We ordered guacamole as our appetizer but it took forever for the waiter to come around to our table, so we just canceled that order. I ordered the special “Santana” and Danny ordered a set of 3 enchiladas. Little did we know, our entrees were basically the same thing except mine was stacked and not rolled up like Danny’s enchiladas. If we had known, we would’ve ordered the cheaper 1 of the 2 (they were the same thing!!!!) Anyway, my entree consisted of a stack of corn tortillas layered with roasted pork, shredded beef, and ranchero chicken topped with ancho chili, verde, and poblano cream sauces. It came with rice and refritos. I really liked my entree because of the different meats and sauces. The ancho chili and poblano sauces were spicy but not overwhelming. The meats were cooked well and I loved adding the rice and beans with the sauce and meat.
Danny ordered the 3 enchiladas (shredded chicken, shredded beef, and roasted pork). He also wanted to substitute the red beans with black beans but his order came with red beans. He didn’t say anything because the waiter barely came around to our table. It was still good though. Danny liked his entree but it was basically the same as what I ordered. We were so full, we couldn’t finish our entrees. Based on our past experiences with Cozymel, we were a bit disappointed with this dinner. We canceled our guacamole appetizer because our waiter wasn’t around or attentive. Also, they forgot to replace Danny’s red beans with black beans. Hopefully if we come back in the future, our experience will be better.
