We eat enough Portuguese food, so we decided to go Mexican for a change and I am glad we did!
El Chilito does a great job considering that they are so far from Mexico and that Mexican food in Europe is traditionally terrible.
We started with Queso Fundido (€6), Guacamole (€6), a Margarita (€5.50), and an Horchata (€2.50). The queso came with two large tortillas and was gooey and tasty. The guacamole was plentiful, but lacked seasoning, needing a bit more garlic and salt. The margarita was very good, although 'on the rocks' was the only option (I prefer blended), but the horchata was too watery and the cinnamon, sprinkled on top instead of being blended in, would not stir into the rice drink.
We both had the Bistec (Steak) Tacos (2 for €7.50), brimming with cubes of steak, melted cheese, onions, and a seasoning which was good, but a tad too spicy for my wife. Our server graciously offered to make her two tacos without the seasoning and offered me her's, so I ended up with four. They were delicious ... HOOAH!
We ended our fiesta with the Churros com Cajeta, a big bowl of churros and another small bowl of Doce de Leite (dulce de leche), both excellent, but the doce de leite would have been much better had it been served warm rather than cold.
We enjoyed our Mexican feast and, considering how much delicious food we ended up with, I consider this restaurant an excellent TravelValue!
