What's For Lunch[?] Series: Mexicali


When my office mates and I crave for comfort food, only one place comes to mind - Mexicali <3

Grilled Pork Chop PHP 219.00 or USD 5.02. I ordered this on Ekai's recommendation, that last time they had this, the pork was almost as good as quality steak. Well, after taking a bite or two, was it? Nah. Though the grilled pork was very smokey and rich in flavor, it was well, rather tough. 




Grilled Chicken Taco Salad PHP 139.00 or USD 3.19. Ekai's order and Gleny's order in previous visits. We're glad that they're very generous with the chicken strips but we honestly don't know if we should call this a salad. It definitely needs more greens but aside from that, it's a great choice if you want something on the lighter side.



Taco and Quesadilla Combo PHP 229.00 or USD 5.25. Can't remember who ordered this but I can vouch that their Taco is worth trying. It's stuffed but not so much that everything would fall out each bite. It can be messy eating, but as they say "practice makes perfect". :)




Taco and Chili Cup Combo PHP 199.00 or USD 4.56. Meeh, this made me miss their chili! I wish they'd put a bit of diced onions and sour cream as well in their smaller version but even sans those toppings, their chili cup is 100% verified comfort food material that can lift up your mood on your downiest days.

I can't even remember how many times we've had lunch at Mexicali anymore. We also like the fact that they allow us inside even if some of my office mates are carrying packed lunch, which is very considerate, unlike some other restaurants in SM MOA which will remain unnamed. See you on my next pig out session. :)
