Fajitas Pollo Y Res

We decided to check out a small restaurant at a market yesterday. Hillary was really hungry and was craving some chicken (pollo) fajitas or tacos. We saw that they had “Fajitas Pollo y Res” on the menu- which translates to chicken and beef fajitas.

Let’s not forget that Hillary is super picky about what meat she eats and she definitely does not eat beef.

As Hillary’s translator, I made a huge mistake and ordered fajitas with only res and no pollo. When the gentlemen took our order I didn’t understand every word that he said and I mistook what he was saying and must have accidentally ordered the beef fajitas instead of only chicken!

We were super surprised when we received our food that there was no chicken, and Hillary was left to eat a been and cheese taco! Although I felt really bad about making such a dumb mistake, the fajita meat ended up being delicious!

Our first inclination was to think that THEY messed up our order, but it didn’t take me long to figure out that it was my cruddy spanish that made the mistake!

I think we just started to feel like we were fitting into the culture here, but in this scenario we definitely both felt like gringos in this scenario!

This has reminded us to stay humble and willing to make mistakes/look really silly!

Keep it Kinetic,

Greg
