I was heaps keen, since my experience of Mexican food doesn't extend beyond Old El Paso. The place was quite packed, even for a Tuesday night. I loved the vibe, it was quite relaxed and much like a bar/club with the music pumping and the chatter of people filling the room. The novelty cactus order numbers were my fav! And best of all, the menu was so cheap! A really good place to go for a bang-for-your-buck feed! It's a shame I was driving otherwise I would have dived straight into the drinks menu.
|We started off with Corn Chips with Guacamole and Salsa. The corn chips are so good, they remind me of the ones you get from fresh fruit and veg shops like Harris Farm|
|Al Pastor Soft Taco - spit roasted pork, pineapple salsa cabbage, coriander, spring onions, salsa verde and pico de gallo|
|More tacos! Can't remember what these were =P|
|Carne Asada Taco - lemongrass beef, salsa verde, Queso, cabbage, coriander, spring onions, salsa verde and pico de gallo. You can substitute the tortilla for a cabbage leaf =)|
I think a majority of us got tacos, but some of us ventured further into the menu.....
|Al Pastor Pork Torta Sandwich - Grilled marinated pork from the spit served on a soft bun with cabbage, coriander, spring onion, mayonnaise and pico de gallo salsa. I was SOOO tempted to get this!! Mmm looks so yummy!|
|Excelsior Hot Dog - Grilled pork Frankfurt served on a soft bun with pickled jalepenos, pico ge gallo, mayonnaise and (LOTS of) cheese|
Mmmm just looking back at the pics makes me hungry ahaha. And of course, we couldn't go without sampling the dessert.
|Orange Flavoured Curros with Dulce de Leche|
Some of the best churros i've ever had!! They were quite large and fluffy, and the dulce de leche went soooo nicely with them. I don't think this is a regular fixture on the menu, but i have a feeling it's probably there most nights. That's another thing about the menu, they have daily specials that of course rotate regularly.
And you have to try everything (except dessert =P) with a bit of Mexican Habanero sauce. Varying in mouth-burning abilty, these add greatly to the tacos in my opinion =).
