These beauties are another instalment from the restaurant that is slowly becoming my favourite Mexican haunt, Café Pacifico, situated right in the middle of Covent Garden.
I took my auntie here for her birthday, and quote, ‘these are the best fajitas I’ve ever eaten - and I’ve had a lot in my time’. Can’t really get a much better review than that can you?
Mixing it up a bit and going against my usual chimichanga, we opted for the sharing options - fajitas and tacos. To start, we simply had to order the roasted pork belly tacos served with tamarind jerk sauce and avocado dip (top). These were absolutely heavenly, I’ve never tasted pork belly like it, the sauce was the perfect partner, and you don’t usually see this variety of pork on the menu at a Mexican restaurant. I’d definitely order this again. For main, we decided on the mixed chicken and beef fajitas that came with a wealth of sides - guacamole, pico de gallo, sour cream, jalapenos, cheese and refried beans. WOW. I’m glad I had my auntie for company, as you can tell by the size of my wraps that it wasn’t the most attractive to eat, but that’s all part of it isn’t it? Stack them high until you cannot physically close the tortilla and hope for the best. And yes, we did manage to polish off everything - two girls. That broke the healthy eating week. You have to pay extra for the cheese and jalapenos but it would feel incomplete without them.
What’s even better about this place is that they don’t charge you an extortionate amount. For the main meal it was £15 each and I certainly did not go hungry. And to top it all off? A delicious range of cocktails, I had the caipirinha and my auntie had a classic mojito.
We left very merry and full. A casual Wednesday night. Oh and by the way, even if you come here mid week the place will be packed (in a good way), you cannot argue with the atmosphere here.
