Readers of Racket — the spiritual successor to City Pages and all-around powerhouse of fun-to-read local news — will probably be familiar with their "Best Budget Bites" series, a periodic feature of their favorite sub-$10 food options throughout the metro.

Last week, Racket's Em Cassel visited Mi Mexico Querido, the stylish Mexican restaurant that opened in the former Dumpling space on 40th and Minnehaha this fall. Her dual conclusion? 1. They're enormous, which makes them an even better deal than she expected. 2. They're really good.

Below is the full feature. Thanks to Racket for making it available to Whatever readers. You can subscribe to their (again, excellent) project here.

It's more of a maxi portion—not that we're complaining.

To protect our readers, Racket recently launched the Best Budget Bites series, where we’ll showcase a toothsome, wallet-friendly food item that’ll actually fill you up. Have a nomination?
