Even better than what we had in Singapore! This is a highly recommend Filipino owned Mexican restaurant! Best of the best! Definitely we will come back! Thanks for the great food and hospitality of staff!
Has to be one of the the best choices we have done, randomly walking the streets of a city we were in for the weekend.
Treat yourself with extremely tasty food with huge portions. Jalapeño poppers are a must for those who enjoy them as...these are the best we have tasted in NZ.
Chimichanga and Pork Enchilada is what we had for mains. Both were huge and packed with flavour. The house made hot sauce was awesome and hopefully in future it could be bottled and sold to the public to take home.
Washed down with a classic Margarita and a Mechilada it was definitely the perfect meal.
Staff were fantastic, polite and friendly. Every request was met with a smile and an "absolutely we can do that!!" The ambiance was great, the only restaurant on the street buzzing on a chilly Friday night.
$99 for the meal and drinks was 100% worth it for what we received and will definitely be returning next time we are in Rotorua.
Thanks for the Brilliant meal and service El Mexicano!!!!More
