I found this restaurant by accident.
I was visiting a friend in Ville St-Laurent and stumbled upon it.
I was really not expecting find such a treat!
As I started to read the menu, (The menu is in Spanish and French only) it became clear that this restaurant was 100% authentic Mexican food. There were things on the menu that no other Mexican restaurant in Montreal would dare to put on theirs.
I ordered a small portion of Pancita "menudo" - a tripe delicacy which in fact is a poor man's treat that you would find at any small local Mexican restaurant while traveling. I certainly did not expect to find it on this menu. I was delightfully surprised at the explosion of tastes from this hearty tomato and chili based soup.
I also ordered a small portion of guacamole. It was not your typical "Canadianized" version of the side dish. It was chock full of Spanish onion, tomatoes and one of my favourite spices - cilantro. Freshly made with a squeeze of lemon and smothered in avocado. This was served with freshly made tortilla chips. I was so impressed by this dish that I ended up ordering another portion to take out!
The dishes were very reasonably priced and came with 6 different types of condiments, including red chili sauce, green chili sauce, spicy coleslaw, cilantro and onions. The soup came with a basket of warm tortillas wrapped in a towel so that they don't dry out during your meal. So charming. I forgot I was in Canada.
This is a casual restaurant with a family feel to it. Definitely worth a try.
I can't wait to go back to try everything on the menu!
