    Well, we start off with their yummy chips and salsa, the boys get the mission burritos while I enjoy the delicious chicken tacos or wait, maybe the brisket burrito! Depends on my mood I guess :). We go to the Montclair location.

    We love Tinga in Montclair. My favorite item on the menu is the cucumber salsa – and the salad dressing, so I usually order a bar sized burrito for the salad. Everything is yummy at Tinga. I’m nut sure i have a favorite, but the dish I order most is the Chicken Tinga Burrito.

    I make a mean chicken enchilada platter with Mexican rice and frijoles refritos. I’ll order the same at Tinga in Montclair if I win. Oh, I almost forgot. I’ll top it all off with some virgin Margaritas.

    If I win, my husband and I will enjoy a nice time out without our son! We will probably both order a chicken dish, probably with rice.

    My husband and I could go for some sizzling shrimp or chicken fajitas or another chicken dish, yummy guacamole and salsa… Montclair is our normal place to eat, but since there are few takers for Millburn, we could eat there too.
