Santa Fe Mexican Grill, 1735 Decker Boulevard Suite B: 2014   1 comment

Posted at 1:32 am in closing






As I was driving down Decker the other day, I noticed that the little corner Mexican restaurant in Decker Plaza, Santa Fe Mexican Grill has rebranded as La Poblanita.

I was wondering if the name meant something like "little poblano pepper", and I guess the root is the same, but wordreference says:

In Mexico there is a state (and a city) called Puebla. The name given to people (or things) from that state is "poblano or poblana". La Poblanita is a diminutive of "poblana". So, La Poblanita is like saying the little woman (or girl) from Puebla. Cheers.

P.S. Be mindful that Puebla is a relatively common name, and there are many towns in the Spanish-speaking countries (I think mostly in Spain) with that name.

so I guess the winsome senorita in the restaurant logo is that eponymous lady.

    I used to do take out from this place all the time. The lady at the register, Estrella, was always nice. I would imagine that the Mexican that opened in the old Dino's and the grocery store in the parking lot serving tacos doesn't help.

    This is in the same strip mall that used to house the Giant Food World back in the mid '80s. The GFW was on the far end of lower strip portion of this "plaza".
