Been back a couple times now to Calle Mexico and it’s good as ever. The restaurant is now fully expanded with plenty of tables. Like the large portraits they’ve put up on the walls; feels very homey.
Part of the menu’s been updated – there’s now an appetizer & side section along with alcoholic drinks and dessert. Siiiiiiiiiick.
These were the specials of the day. Don’t pass up on their specials, seriously. Haven’t been disappointed yet.
Don’t forget to stock up on the sauces. Why are the containers so small though??? Had to go back twice to refill on the guacamole and salsa verde.
A sweet Mexican drink made with fresh melon. Bbops wasn’t a big fan so I got to drink most of it. Pretty light, mild but you can tell it’s made with real melon. I think the horchata is my favourite out of the three available flavours.
Homemade chips topped with beans, steak, sour cream, cheese, pico de gallo and radish. The nachos are great; fresh, crunchy and crisp. The flavours were pretty well balanced except couple bites I could really taste the salt coming through. I can’t really pinpoint what ingredient was so salty but it was there…
2x Sopes ($4.00 each)
Another special of the day was the chorizo sope. We each ordered one and they were freaking delicious. Topped with onion, queso, avocado and here’s the kicker: potatoes. Potatoes were perfect! Thoroughly enjoyed/devoured it.
I’m not sure the exact price of the churros but my guess is that they were $7.50. You get 5 massive pieces, which we weren’t expecting, with a side of caramel sauce to dip them in. Fresh, hot, crunchy and not too sweet. We were stuffed so only ate one each, which was more than enough. Bbops brought the rest back for his lucky co-workers to finish.
