If you’re in St. Paul you must try Homi. Real. Mexican. Food. And, let me tell you, it’s fabulous!! We’ve been going by this place for a while and finally decided to try it tonight. We’re so glad we did, we are definitely going back.
It’s a tiny place and parking is problematic so Homi put a nice, big sign in his window: “parking in back”. And there was! I forgot to take a photo of the front. If you’re taking the green line you’ll go in the front door (not pictured).
We sat down and started with their homemade guacamole. Oh my goodness. Delish!! He leaves the pit in the dish and I thought that was a nice touch. It is made fresh, as is everything at Homi. They have a sign explaining that there is a bit of a wait because everything is made from scratch. It’s definitely worth the wait.
I had the chiles rellenos. These might be the best chiles rellenos that I’ve ever had. The sauce was to die for. It came with rice and beans. We also got fresh and warm corn tortillas (rice, beans and tortillas not pictured).
Hubby had the tamales, equally delicious. I tasted it, yum!
They’re right on the green line and easy for downtown worker bees to have lunch. They are also on this list of some other great places to eat in St. Paul, Lunch along the Green Line.
Their portions are large, so bring your appetite. Or bring home the rest and have it for lunch the next day. Do try this great Mexican restaurant when you’re in St. Paul. I’m sure you will leave happy.
