Maria Maria is a lovely restaurant located in downtown Austin, on Colorado St, just a block off the famous 6th Street. The lighting is soft and romantic with candles lit throughout the restaurant, as well as lighting set up to highlight the gorgeous paintings on the walls.
I enjoyed the complimentary chips and salsa (and a margarita!) until my entree arrived. Many things sounded good but I really wanted to try the carnitas and since it came recommended, I went ahead with ordering it. So happy that I did! The carnitas were different than most I have had before because they were bite-sized chunks of tender pork that had been cooked in a tangy, spicy Adobo sauce. I made tacos from both corn and flour tortillas, they were both very good!The portion was very big and I had a lot leftover.
