Mexico at Takapuna

Beetroot, carrot, feta & cumin dip with house corn chips 

On Saturday, my girlfriends and I went to check out Mexico in Takapuna. We’d already been to the Britomart one a few times so we knew to be prepared for a big wait. They don’t take bookings unless you’re in a group of 10+, so you can expect about an hour to an hour and a half wait on a Saturday night. When we were seated however, we were served really promptly. In comparison to Britomart, the food came out much quicker, we’d expected to snack on our chips and dip for awhile, but everything came out almost immediately, and pretty much all at once. This might have been because the restaurant wasn’t as busy by the time we were seated, but either way, it was appreciated. The restaurant is also much larger and roomier than the Britomart one, you don’t feel quite as cramped. We ordered on empty stomachs, so ordered way more than we could eat. Isn’t it funny though, that no matter how full you are, you can always fit in dessert? The churros were a nice way to end the dinner.

Mushroom, garlic, oregano, cheese & sour cream quesadillas

Achiote rubbed beef, citrus cured eschalots 

fried chicken

Churros con Xocolate

Also, we’d all driven straight there, and being the responsible citizens that we are, didn’t drink. Doh! So, no fancy margaritas pics, sorry.
