AF­TER RE­CENT CON­SUMP­TION and talk of au­then­tic Mex­i­can, I found my­self long­ing for the cheesier Tex Mex. As the Happy Mex­i­can has just re­cently opened its sec­ond lo­ca­tion, the tim­ing was right for a visit.

Well, it was right. I wish I’d timed my Satur­day visit in the late af­ter­noon in­stead of lunch, so that I could have taken ad­van­tage of the tasty mar­gar­i­tas they serve up at a spe­cial price on Satur­days. But drink­ing a mas­sive mar­garita at noon is just fly­ing too close to the sun. If it car­ried a warn­ing, it would say “Dan­ger: May lead to nap­ping and/or wasted af­ter­noons.”

So I set­tled in­stead for an in­dul­gence

The Happy Mex­i­can’s car­ni­tas are ten­der pork tips and the fix­ings. Wash it down with a mar­garita; there are sev­eral va­ri­eties avail­able.

The Happy Mex­i­can is at 6080 Pri­macy Park­way in East Mem­phis.
