I am an expatriate resident of Barcelona who has been waiting for a restaurant like this - proper Mexican, not texmex, but also not a Spanish take on Mexican either.
We had reserved for our Sunday lunch, assuming the restaurant would be full. It wasn't...but I suspect this will change very soon! We were welcomed at the gate of the alley where the restaurant sits. Our drink order was discussed on our short walk!
I had a margarita classica (made with Patrón) and my better half had a beer (Pacifico) which was selected from a long pedigreed list of Mexican beers. While we enjoyed our drinks, we were treated to a selection of 3 salsas and house made chips. At this point I had already decided that I love this place! The salsas were a really great start to the meal...fresh, tasty...and the Margarita was PERFECT!
We ordered Fish Tacos to share as a starter and then we followed with Chicken in a Mole sauce and Steak with a Green sauce. The fish tacos were full of flavour, served with lime to squeeze over (a flavour revelation that made them almost addictive)! The chicken was charcoal grilled and then served covered with a Mole sauce and some red rice. The more we ate, the more we loved - A rich, spicy incredibly chocolatey sauce served with succulent chicken! The steak was fantastic too! The citrussy tomatillo sauce was a perfect foil against the juicy beef and the cheesy rice with grilled spring onions worked well to finish the dish.
The service was friendly and attentive and we were pleased to see that the restaurant was beginning to fill up as we dined.
I would recommend this restaurant with no qualms! I can't wait to return!
