I organised a quick catch us sesh with C at a Mexican restaurant – Cha Chi’s. We don’t often have Mexican food, so this was us going out of our comfort zone and trying something different (plus we have heard that Mexican food is delicious so expectations were kinda high!).
Cha Chi’s interior; a small indoor bridge and garden/water feature greets guests as they first walk in the door
It took us a solid 10 minutes before we decided on what to order as we really had no idea what to expect, but we kicked off with a jug of sangria! 😛
Sangria – red wine punch with fresh fruit and juice, 1/2 litre jug; $10.00
It didn’t take long before our food was served… and my oh my, the serving sizes were more than generous!
Oven baked burrito served with rice and salad; $19.90
Such a vibrant plate of colours and flavours. I clearly remember struggling to finish this, which eventuated in an unnecessary food coma. As for the dish? It was good – extremely filling and flavourful but not something I’d go out of my way to get.
Panuchos de camarones – prawns sautéed in butter with onions, capsicum, chipotle and tomato in a light creamy white wine sauce, laying on top of crispy flour tortilla chips served with rice and avocado salad; $22.90
So we tried, we conquered (barely), and we left with satisfied full bellies. Expectations weren’t met but hey, we were willing to give almost anything a go.
