Habanero Grill, Rockport (ME): Don't bother

mainemal | May 21, 2008 05:27 AM

This new eatery on Rt. 1 should be avoided by all CH. Looks nice on outside and inside, friendly Mexican owner and staff BUT...absolutely nothing authentic or tasty here. My enchilada verde contained something vaguely resembling hunks of stewed (?) pork, and nothing else. If there was green chili in the dish, I was unable to discern it. The tortilla that wrapped it was bland and soggy, and the "cheese" was 3 dabs of something that might or might not have been cheese decorating the outside. Black beans were....well, black beans. Rice, unbelievably, was apparently pre-cooked and from a box. In total, no flavor, no heat, no nothing. Other diners had a seabood enchillada which I tasted: again, totally bland. I dared not taste anything else.
