For Tucson foodies, there may be nothing more exciting than ordering the plato Poca Cosa. It's a bit of a risk: Your entrée will consist of whatever three things Suzana Dávila and her crew decide to put on your plate--and you have no say in what those three things are. But, really, the risk is minimal: Whatever combination of food that shows up on your plato--it could be tamale pie, fish, carne asada, chicken, pork or anything else that's on the menu for that day--is bound to be yummy. If you're still nervous, here's a suggestion: Take a group to Café Poca Cosa, and talk them into getting the plato, too, so you can trade.
