Saturday night we did an old school date night complete with a romantic comedy and Mexican food. We went to Cafe Pacifico in Covent Garden. I wrote about them a long time ago and I was a bit harsh. We had just moved here and I was suffering from a pretty bad case of fajita withdrawal. But we went back and I have to admit that this was good:
By good I mean that it tasted like real honest to goodness Guacamole. The rest of the meal was pretty good as well. I don’t like their rice and the beef was meh but as a whole it really didn’t suck- that is a compliment for London Mexican food. Trust me. During our wait and meal we played a game that we always play. We come up with a restaurant comprised of our favorite components of other restaurants. This time we played it for Mexican food!
Mike and Andrea’s Mexican Heaven
Chips & Salsa: Andrea- Chilis; Mike- Pepe & Mito’s
Dip: Old Mexican Inn Orange Dip
Margarita: Andrea- Mi Cocina; Mike- La Hacienda Ranch
Tortillas: Pepe & Mito’s
Guacamole: El Chico
Fajita Beef: Uncle Julio’s
Sopapilla: Don José’s Mexicant Restauran
A few things you should know. Mike and Andrea’s Mexican Heaven only serves fajitas. There are only beef fajitas. That point is non-negotiable. El Chico is laughable in some respects but that guacamole that they make right at your table is definitely with the $5 or whatever they charge these days. Every restaurant we frequent seems to have adequate cheese and sour cream so I didn’t feel the need to pick these. We don’t ever order queso and aren’t big pico de gallo people either.
In hopes to liven up the comment section I will turn it over to you- comprise your Mexican Restaurant Heaven!
