Paragary's Centro Cocina Mexicana

Sacramento is home to several delightful Paragary Restaurants, which come together under the banner of the Paragary Group.  I was able to share a relaxed early afternoon dinner with my son, and daughter-in-law, at Paragary’s Centro Cocina Mexicana, located at 2830 J Street, Sacramento. 

Kurt Spataro is the Executive Chef at Centro Cocina Mexicana.  Kurt has garnered considerable experience from his time in the kitchens of Mexico.  He gives credits to Diane Kennedy, a regional guru, with inspirational dishes on the menu. 

I opted for Mancamanteles - Slow-cooked pork shoulder in a sauce of ancho chiles, spices, pineapple, plantains; with Butternut squash tamales.

Among other dishes at our table, was Asada de Puerco - Wood-grilled pork carnitas with cascabel salsa, Kabocha squash, grilled onions, black beans.

I couldn’t help but believe that some of the very best Mexican food in the Greater Sacramento region, is served on the tables of Centro Cocina Mexicana.

I can’t wait to go back!

Myrl, 

It appears you get the opportunity to get together with your children on a fairly frequent basis and that is wonderful. It is very hard to schedule with grown children.

Centro is right across the street from my office. Of course, I wasn't there because I am in Death Valley, but anytime you want to do lunch at Centro, you just let me know, Myrl. Did you sit there and stare at the Lyon Real Estate sign and think about me? Ha, ha, of course not. You stuffed your face, and now I'm hungry looking at your pictures!!!
