Summer Eats :Mexico Britomart

If you have been eating out a bit in Auckland, you'd notice the trend of Mexican food sweeping in everywhere. Pretty good times for me because I love diversity in the eating scene. The more the merrier. One spot that I have been wanting to check since it has opened its door is Mexico in Britomart. It has been opened for almost a year now and I haven't had a chance to check it out because it is always packed and I have tried twice to get a seat after yoga on Wednesday but I gave up. I decided to give it a go again this time since it's holiday period and most people are away. Hopefully it'll be easier this time around. The day was scorching and I am just craving for cold margaritas and The Depot was closed so we somehow ended up in Britomart area. Got in and there was a table available in 10 minutes. Score!

The three of us ordered fish and pork tacos, beetroot salads, fried chicken and a carafe of margarita.

 I was starving and food a little while to arrive but it all arrived at the same time. Our favorites were the prawn quesadillas and beetroot salads. Both the pork and fish tacos were rather bland. I prefer the tacos from Jalapeno Grill but would definitely come back for the quesadillas.

 The fried chicken was pretty good but not phenomenal and I could give it a miss and save the calories for another drink or snack.

Food prices are quite affordable but would definitely become expensive for big eaters because you will need at least 3 tacos to fill a raging appetite. The service was not as patchy as I'd expected after reading about the complaints online. The hostesses are a bit pointless but the waiting staff are pretty helpful.

The drinks are reasonable priced for this part of town so it'd be a good place to come to on a hot summer's day to have some drinks and small bites.
