After Christmas was over, one critic and a guest critic decided to have a moms-only night out. If you know anything about these best friends, you know we love Mexican food. So, we were more than excited to head to Palmyra to try out the new MIAA Mexican Bistro.

Located on East Main Street in Palmyra, MIAA offers a menu of Mexican favorites all said to be handmade.

Tonight’s choices included Birria Tacos ($16) and Fried Fish Tacos ($16). Of course, we started out enjoying the chips and salsa. The salsa had a nice spice to it and was clearly house made.

As we waited for our meals, the waitress brought out three bottles of hot sauce for us to use with our tacos. One was a mild sauce, one specially made for their birria options, and a third green sauce that was the hottest. We really enjoyed the green sauce, but take caution, because it’s mild at first but leaves a lasting heat.

The fish tacos included fried fish, fresh tortilla, lime, onion, and cilantro. Each meal included rice and refried beans. The fish tacos were simple but when adding the sauces, it made a delightful dinner. Add the lime for a fresh touch.

The birria tacos were something this critic had never tried before. Birria is a style of taco that has pulled beef grilled in before getting dipped in a flavorful beef broth. The hot sauce that the waitress recommended was delicious with the taco and we understood why they were paired together.

Our take: MIAA takes Mexican up a notch by offering fresh handmade options. We arrived early and by the time we left the restaurant was packed. Every plate that came out looked delicious. We are looking forward to trying it for breakfast as one of our followers has stated that it is good as well.

We give this place 🥓🥓🥓🥓.
