The club got an invite to try out the extensive Mexican offerings of B&T(Burritos & Tacos) Mexican Kitchen. I had previously visited and blogged about B&T. This time I wanted to make it a point to try both burritos and tacos and since I had already eaten the Chicken Mole, I veered clear this time to be able to try other things.
It seems the menu and ordering process has become more streamlined and labeled for first timers.
Chips with Chili Con Carne, Cheese and Salsa. The chips are again very colorfully arranged like the colors of the flag of Mexico. Once I dipped the chips into the chili con carne, i knew it was not like the ones I’ve had before. For one, its not tomato sauce based, and the sour cream on top really adds a nice creamy and tangy flavor that mixes well with the beans and ground beef under. A perfect start to the Mexican feast to come.
Mexican Chipotle Chicken Pizza (P450). A surprisingly unique take on pizza, instead of the usual pie crust, this one uses tortilla. The chicken is marinated in chipotle (smoke dried jalapeño) giving it a nice smoky flavor as well as a little spicy kick. The cheese and tortilla crust was really crispy kinda like thin crust pizzas from Shakey’s.
Mexican Vegetarian Pizza (P430) A colorful pizza with toppings reminiscent of a fiesta. I liked the chipotle chicken pizza better but I’m a biased meat eater. This a good alternative for vegetarians out there and if you don’t like any ingredients in the pizza they can also remove them.
Carne Asada Torta with Sweet Potato Fries (P340). This was just ok for me since I don’t really associate bread with Mexican food, I’d rather have tortillas. Beans are also missing in this dish, so for those bean haters out there this dish is for you.
Mexican Burger (P310) Its a big chunk of beefy goodness topped with melted cheese and a departure from regular burger, salsa and garlic sauce.
Fish Tacos (P330) 3 soft tortillas tacos with fried fish fillets with the regular taco fillings. I was surprised to like this the best among all the food that was served that night. The fish tasted so good even though it was fried and I later found out that its because they now use fresh local fish since the traditional mahi-mahi is not available locally and the ones available are all frozen. You really get to taste the freshness in each bite and the soft tortilla really helps keep the taco mess at bay.
Shrimp Burrito (P350). Their burrito are humongous, I can’t finish the whole thing by myself. Irene and I would either share 1 burrito or I wrap the other one and have it at home. The filling of this burrito is a departure from the usual meats like pork, beef and chicken and instead is filled with fried shrimp, something like tempura but has different breading.
Barbacoa Tostada (P330). The tortilla are in this dish are torched hence the name “tostada”. The meat filling this time is the barbacoa which is fork tender slow cooked beef in spices.
Quesadilla de Fruta (P215). Peach slices and cheese in between two large tortillas and topped with chocolate sauce, peanuts and a scoop of ice cream. This one was a little weird for me as I did not like how the peach and cheese mixed together.
That was one big Mexican feast, now I will have an even harder time choosing what to eat when I visit B&T Mexican Kitchen.
So forget about “that other Mexican place” and give B&T Mexican Kitchen a try and see for your the difference a clean and cheery ambiance can make.
