On Saturday afternoon, the American and I went to El Cholita in Northbridge. We had spotted this Mexican restaurant a few months back but had unfortunately already eaten elsewhere. T.oday we were ravishing! After an early wake up and an intense exam, we were ready to indulge in some delicious food and drinks! And that we did!
As we entered the wonderfully decorated corner restaurant we were greeted by the friendly bar staff who invited us to choose a table and get comfortable. The bar was impressive and if Tequila is your thing- you are in for a treat! Seriously I’ve never seen such an extensive Tequila variety! I opted for a glass of Spanish Rose whilst Scott went for a bottle of Dos Equis. Within no time at all it was delivered to our booth, which we chose as it overlooked Williams Street and was in front of the amazing skull urban art. We were given menus to look over and ample time to discuss our options before our order was taken.
We both went for the lunch special with Scott choosing the chicken burrito, whilst I opted for the Zucchini and Black bean burrito, each $15. We also started with some delicious guacamole and toasted tortillas as our entree. I loved that when our meals arrived they were perfectly timed. Entree was served and another round of drinks was ordered. The mains along with an impressive condiments stand was brought to our table shortly after. The free condiments included fresh lime wedges, aioli, chilli sauce, chutney, avocado and a sweeter chilli sauce too.
Our meals were generous in size without being too big that it left us feeling heavy and sluggish. This is usually my qualm with Mexican as it more often than not leaves me feeling bloated, yet these were light and refreshing. We ended up splitting our burritos so that we could each try both. With the total bill coming to $55 which included two rounds of drinks, two burritos and an entree to share, we were more than impressed with our find!
