Iron Horse Cafe

6034 SE Milwaukie Ave.
(via D-dish)
Appetizer: Jalapeno poppers
Kitty: Veggie combo plate with chili relleno and veggie burrito Cecilia
Bill: Veggie combo w/mushroom tamale and veggie burrito
Dessert: Coca-cola cake, key lime pie

Mmmmm. Everything was just wonderful. My burrito had all sorts of veggies in it, even zucchini and carrots. I'd never had a roasted chili relleno before, and I'll be ordering that again. My favorite: the poppers tasted just like the kind I used to make for myself. I've long since given up the deep fryer, and am glad to finally have a substitute. I think I may pay for my overindulgence.

The key lime pie is still waiting, as Bill was completely stuffed on his mushroom tamale and veggie burrito. They do not skimp on shrooms--they truly make up the bulk of the dish. I didn't care for the cake--it's okay with frosting, but the cake itself has a funky aftertaste, and is barely sweetened. Pretty much in line with other Mexican sweets I've had, I suppose, but not my thang. I like me some sugah.

Overall, just excellent. Lots of veggie options, and so very good. We'll be ordering from them again, I'm sure.
