Mexico City – good service, OK food, OK ambience. But we liked it for what it was – cheap Mexican food. Overall it was good, and far better value than Fitzroy’s Los Amigos, but no “must return” factor.
Kudos to them for exchanging the jug of Sangria specified on the voucher for a jug of Coke (I know it’s better for them, but some places just say “take it or leave it”, which makes me want to take it and just leave it sitting there).
Interesting decor – a mural by an artist clearly influenced by Dali/Picasso or on the gear is the highlight. Little place, little tables, but the vibe is cool.
Started with some corn chips and some spicy salsa dip. Cha thought it had a bit too much kick, but I liked when I could avoid the coriander.
We had a tasting plate, which we liked, although it was a bit cheesy/deep-fried. Good guac and salsa.
I had the Chilli Con Carne, with beef cubes (really shredded beef) rather than beef mince, and it was good, but pretty bland. nice rice.
Cha had the enchilada and a taco, which she liked. I thought it was good the way the stood it up using a corn chip
A distinctly non-Mexican Jaffa Cake to finish. Was good, if standard production line stuff.
TLDR: Good but not outstanding.
