|The menu is pretty simple… with not many selections, but for people unfamiliar with Mexican food like us, it was somewhat overwhelming. Fortunately the waiter was super helpful and was keen to suggest choices. We decided to go with 4 veggies and 4 meats, as it seems like 4 tacos is a good portion size for an average appetite.|
|There were plenty of condiments on the side for you to tailor the taste to your liking, ranging from mild salsa verde to some hot spicy Mexican sauce. :P|
|First up was our meat platter. I let Rich devour most of it except the chicken one, since he had wanted to get all meat tacos to begin with. Plus, the other three had cilantro on them. :P I did have a taste though.|
Al Pastor – Pork marinated in achlote chili and pineapple
Asada – Grilled ‘AAA’ flank beef
Pescado – Grilled seasoned fish with pico de gallo
Tinga De Pollo – Chicken with chorizo in a chipotle tomato sauce, topped with Mexican cheese and sour cream
|Next up were our veggie choices:|
|From the left going clockwise: |
1. Tinga de Hongos – sauteed fresh mushrooms in spicy chipotle sauce
2. De Picadillo – sauteed ground tofu in chin-chin’s secret recipe
3. Rajas con Crema – roasted poblano peppers with creamed corn, sour cream and mexican cheese
4. Frijoles Charros con Queso – refried cowboy beans with Mexican cheese
|Rich and I both liked the food. There was such a variety of different flavours. I think my personal favourites were the tofu and chicken ones. Rich liked the pork and beef. Each one had its unique flavour, but if you eat four, it kind of just melds into one in your head… at least it did for me. We also made a mess eating these, with sauce dripping everywhere! What is the best way of eating them without spilling?? Would I go back? Likely, but most likely to its Cambie St location instead (since it’s closer to our workplaces).|
