Amigos Mexican Restaurant

ElGimpo | Nov 28, 201010:00 AM

New spot on 14837 North Florida Avenue close to Bearss in a strip mall (Action plaza). Typical little hole in the wall kinda place. Good sign when a Mexican restaurant is full of Mexicans eating there.

On sit down I got some freshly made nachos and homemade salsa, nachos still warm, very good. Big menu, even a vegetarian section. I was intrigued by the deep fried whole mojarra but I found the taco selections and went with 4: chorizo, lengua, steak and carnitas. $7.50. Out of al pastor. Took some time to make, but I was entertained by Spanish tv blaring right above my cabeza. The plate arrived and I was pleasantly surprised with 4 nice fat tacos with homemade tortillas and a side of pickled sliced carrots. Red salsa, green salsa and limes on the side.

Best Mexican chorizo I have had yet, just excellent. Best carnitas too, just the way I like em, nice and crunchy and moist on the inside, the only place I have found these made this way outside my kitchen. The toungue was bland and diced in little squares, skip these. The steak was shredded and a bit crispy, not great but way way better than most places I've been to. I was worried the single tortillas wouldn't hold up but they did. The salsas served were very good. Before I started eating, it didn't really bother me that they were out of the pastor but now I was pouting about it.

The waitress told me they make their own crunchy style tacos in-house so I'll be trying those next time. I left happy and giddy that this place is only 4 minutes from my hacienda.

Mexican food is kinda new to me so I would love to hear what ya'll think about it if you happen to eat there.
