New mexican for Red Deer
On ross street across from old Club Cafe
sign originaly said opening Jan 5, new sign
says opening Jan 12
I think it's a chain hopefully its this one
I walked past today and the part of the sign with the day was cut out,now
it only says opening january.I'll update again if they post a new date or
Update du jour.Apparently the contractor is not in as big a hurry to open as they
are,Next target date thursday.(to open)
A gentleman I know talked to the owner.(owners?)They said that they want to
open monday.The menu includes tacos,enchiladas,burritos etc.Non mexican goodies
listed include Pupasas(El Salvador) and empanadas(Chile).Taco selection will
include Chorizo,chicken,al pastor,carne asada.The al pastor will come off the
grill as they don't have a vertical spit.They hope to install one eventualy.
They will also have daily specials.Apparently they are not a chain.
It's finaly open. I stopped in to check it out.I tried out the taco plate.This
consists of 4 tacos,beans,rice and a drink for about $10.50(with tax).the tacos
are made up of one 4 inch tortilla with meat.There is 3 additional toppings to
choose from.Onions,cilantro and radishes.There is a good sized portion of meat
on the tacos even accounting for the small tortillas.
chorizo-A little dry but good,spiceyness dumbed down to Red Deer levels
Carne Asada These both need work,were originally grilled but lost something in
the steam table.
They have a selection of salsas in portion cups for adding to the meal.Pico de
galo, Three hot sauces,chile oil.green sauce, and a few others.I think theese
are all made instore.
This was there first day open (monday).I hope things improve as time goes on.
I am going to work my way through their menu in the coming weeks and I hope to
find a choice or two that rates better than good.The tacos are an improvement
over Taco Time but I was expecting a lot better.At least they had my three
It seems to be fairly authentic with a mexican cook.
I wonder if it is authentic al pastor as They seem to refer to it as barbeque pork in the article.
I was told it was al pastor but it tastes different than the one I make.I's hard to
say as I have never had the original cut off the vertical spit.Mine is done on the
gas grill or under the broiler.Theirs is done on a grill.The radish,cilantro and
onion toppings are authentic.
