Take yourself on a culinary journey to Mexico and El Salvador out in Surrey. I had the pleasure to taste my way through many dishes on the menu at this restaurant that opened in early 2020. Owned by husband and wife, Marvin and Rosa who are from El Salvador and their restaurant offers dine-in, takeout and delivery.
Lawrence joined me for this wonderful meal and this is what we tried.
Pupusas stuffed corn tortillas, handcrafted and grilled with a selection of stuffings that includes the (cheese and loroco which is from El Salvador), (cheese and chorizo), (Cheese and pollo), and (mixta); comes with pickled cabbage and salsa. This is a Salvadoran speciality that is hard to find around our area; they have done a great job, perfection.
Tacos with salsa, we had the delicious steak Asado, chorizo, al Pastor, and beef birria.
Chiles Rillenos – poblano chili stuffed with cheese rolled in an egg batter then grilled til golden brown, served with rice and refried beans. This is a Mexican specialty and it is delicious.
Enchiladas – corn tortillas stuffed with beef and topped with their delicious rich mole, served with rice and refried beans.
Pollo Mole – marinated grilled chicken topped with their delicious mole, served with rice and refried beans.
Triangle tortilla layered with chicken, rice and cheese then grilled, almost like a burrito but not a burrito.
Flan with caramel, dense and delicious
Tres Leches – 3 milk cake, yum
I loved all the different dishes especially the mole enchiladas, chiles rillenos and the pupusas; all of which I would order again and again.
