Goveas Mexican Restaurant (San Jose)

Here in San Jose, there is no shortage of Mexican restaurants. Most of them are good, with some better than others. If you avoid the chains and go for the mom-and-pop type establishments, you're sure find some gems.

Goveas is one of those restaurants where you can get a good meal at a decent price. Located in a strip mall at Tully and Quimby Roads, across from the Eastridge Mall in east San Jose, it's a small joint with maybe a dozen tables, one waitress, a couple of cooks, and the owner. Decor isn't much to look at but you come here to eat the food, not the decor, right?

Annie got the chicken enchiladas. They were yummy. She didn't care for the white, sour-cream based sauce though.

My chile verde burrito. Great flavor, quite filling, and only $3.25! Can't go wrong with that. Only thing I don't get is why they have to serve it on a searingly hot plate.

They do an excellent chicken mole as well. This place has become our default Mexican restaurant.
