Chihuaha Mexican Grill recently celebrated their 8th Anniversary with the introduction of the P59/P79/P99 menu. The new menu is perfect for people on the go and want a quick snack or people who want to try different things in one meal. There is a limit of 3 items from the new menu per person, with 4 items for each price point, you can get a group of 4 and order everything from the menu for only P948.
We started off with Spicy Chips (P59) and Ultimate Bean Dip (P79) which I forgot to take a pictures of. Serving size was more than enough for one person though. The spicy chips has a creamy Jalapeno salsa that I stupidly thought was guacamole because of the green color until I tasted the spiciness, level was fine I was just surprised. The ultimate bean dip is their signature red bean was slightly spicy tempered by the creamy beans. Both are good starter options depending on your spice tolerance and will be perfect for the BGC cinema branch.
Tostada (P99), crispy flat corn tortilla with refried beans, beef picadillo, lettuce, pico de gallo and cheese. Crisp, fun to eat with strong flavors and can easily be shared.
Mexican Pizza (P99), flour tortilla with beef picadillo, salsa, pico de gallo, olives, jalapeno, and grated cheese. Slightly different from the tostada because this uses a flour tortilla so not as crispy and it doesn’t have the refried beans. Both are good but I prefer the crispier corn tortilla.
Bean Burrito (P59), filled with refried and black beans, Mexican rice, jalapeno salsa, and chipotle salsa. A little roll that packs a punch, tasty and will fill you up even with no meat.
Tex Mex Melt (P79), beef picadillo, cheese (cheddar and Monteray jack mix), jalapeno salsa in between a warm tortilla. This is like a personal size quesadilla, you can eat while walking or in the movies. One of my favorites from the new menu.
Cincinnati Chili (P99), spaghetti topped with chili con carne. A unique creation that hails from Cincinnati, Ohio with chains of restaurants just serving this item. Who knew this combination would work.
Arroz Con Leche (P79), rice pudding made with raisins, milk and spices. This dessert is well loved in Mexico and other Latin American countries and should be very familiar to Filipinos with their many rice based desserts. I enjoyed the creaminess of the pudding and the strong cinnamon flavor, you also get surprising sweetness from the golden raisins.
I haven’t been back to Chihuahua for a while with no branch near us and Lauren not that fond of Mexican food. I felt the food at Chihuahua is so much better than I remember, food was overall much more tasty and I’ve already spied a few items on the menu that Lauren might like so we’ll be visiting again soon.
