Craving some really good authentic Mexican cuisine in Central Ohio? Plan a visit to Gahanna’s newest culinary gem: Mi Tradicion soon. Very, VERY soon. Located just north of State Route 62/Granville St. on Stygler Rd., this local eatery delivers high marks on everything from flavors to service.
From the minute you enter the restaurant, you feel the spirit of family here. Members of the Paredes family (owners) take great pride in food that represents true Mexican cuisine. Each dish is full of flavors originating from Mexico City and inspired by family recipes. (Did I mention the delicious WARM homemade chips and salsa served upon your arrival?)
On the day that I visited with two friends—we sampled the Shrimp Chimichanga (delicious), Beef and Chicken Enchiladas (yum) and Chicken Fajitas (enough for two people or two meals). But don’t take our word for it. Sample one or more of the house specialties including …
- El Molcajete: strips of grilled steak with shrimp, mushrooms, poblano peppers, onions, chorizo and a special sauce—all topped with Mozzarella cheese and fresh avocado and served in a stone Molcajete bowl with tortillas.
- Enchiladas Toluca: Three stuffed enchiladas –one with chicken/one with beef tips/ one with cheese—then smothered with Mexican sausage, grilled onions and melted cheese. Then topped with enchilada sauce and served with rice and refried beans.
In addition to the outstanding food, the service is second-to-none. It’s clear that everyone on the staff is dedicated to making sure that visitors not only enjoy the cuisine, but that they plan on returning very soon. And with affordable, delicious food and the warm/fuzzy welcome—why wouldn’t you come back?
