Mexican food virgin... (Ed. Now with menu)

purple goddess | Apr 11, 2007 06:56 PM

well.. more of a born-again virgin.. given the last time I ate Mexican it was from Taco Bill's about 20 years ago and was freakin horrible. CC corn chips with Ole El Paso canned sauce/salsa and pre-fab guac.


I see all these mouth watering posts about Mex food, and you've inspired me.

Which is actually kinda scary, given I live in Melbourne Australia.. not a place known for it's mex food.

What should I be looking for?

What are your tips?

Speak to me of mole and quesila-thingumy-bobs.

I have a booking for a Mexican restaurant tonight.

Ed:... rang the place and asked for a menu to be faxed. Here we go CH'ders!!

Chile Con Queso- a spicy melted cheese and sour cream di[
Frijoles Con Queso-blend of mexican beans and melted cheese
Chile Con Carne- ground beef, beans, onions, tomatoes and spices
Guacamole- avocado, lime, onion and tomato

Trio of dips served with corn chips and warm tortilla strips
Mexican Spring Rolls- chicken, corn, spinach and cheese, served with salsa and guacamole
Cajun Cheesy Bites (**ok, this is where I start to get nervous!!*)- mozzarella cheese sticks coated in Cajun Seasoned bread crumbs, deep fried until cruchy with a melted cheese centre. Delicious! Served with dipping sauces.
