Since moving to New York and starting my blog, I’ve jumped on the Twitter bandwagon. At first, I was hesitant…already a Facebook user, why did I need to read about what everyone was doing in 140 characters or less? But, as I explored the Twitter world a little more, I discovered it was not only an amazing way to keep up to date on the latest news, celebrity gossip, and food trends/restaurant openings/recipes, but it was also a fantastic avenue for meeting new people. Not only have I made “twitter friends” with a shared interest in running and food, but they have also become real life friends. I had the pleasure of dining with new friends made through this social media outlet at an old favorite, Barrio Chino, in the LES. We bonded over our shared love of running and food and enjoyed some fantastic and authentic Mexican dishes.
It might be hard to tell from the dark photos, but the food was beautiful and delicious! Last time I visited this tiny and cozy spot, I went with the fish tacos (which another friend had and loved). But this time, the enchiladas were calling my name and I’m so glad I answered. I highly recommend this vibrant and flavorful green dish. There was also an un-pictured order of the chicken enchilada mole…also a hit. I can’t wait for more running and dining dates with a lovely group of ladies!
