I’ve only ever had Mexican food at a legitimate Mexican restaurant once, and it wasn’t particularly memorable. But having said that, it was years ago and I’m ready to give it another shot!
There’s gotta be more than nachos and burritos yeah? Lets’ see!
Chilli Verde: prime chunks of pure beef steak, simmered with onions, spices, herbs, green capsicum, garnished with jalapeno sauce and cheese. Served on a bed of Spanish rice; $14.95
Meh, I found the beef chunks to be tough and overcooked, spices overpowering and Spanish rice dry and bordering on hard.
Mole Poblano: centuries old chicken dish invented by nuns of Puebla for the bishops visit, served with a spicy Aztec sauce, 32 herbs and spices, coconut, banana and pineapple; $18.95
A confusing dish of flavours! Sweet banana with chicken and rice? Um… I’m not sure. I’m all for pairing sweet and salty together (think salted caramel!), but not with this dish.
Wasn’t a huge fan of Mexican food prior to this, and still not a huge fan after this. Someone, prove me otherwise? Suggestions on places I should try? Or dishes that I should order? Hmph!
Service: 2/5 – Slow and wish washy. One person in the kitchen and the one waiter, lunch hour with very few people.
