Chimichanga, Eastside, Cardiff

May 4, 2011

It’s the first time I’ve eaten out in Cardiff’s Eastside, the restaurant wing of the colossal St David 2 development that’s just ten minutes  from our flat. D and I had been to see a film at Cineworld, and I was insistent on trying something new. To be honest, I don’t think he had any idea how close we were to Hooters, or it may have been a longer discussion.

It’s a Mexican bar and restaurant promising authentic cuisine, and one of a chain of 11 across the UK. The staff were friendly without being obtrusive, and were happy for the two of us to take up a booth as it was quiet, as well as letting us stay and natter over drinks once we’d eaten. It was a rather welcome relief not to be interrupted with an insincere query about how we found the food.

The food was good: spicy, tasty and well-presented: I had the piri piri chicken wrap with a spicy sauce and D had a chicken fajita wrap. They came with changa chips and a slightly tired salad. The classic margaritas were spot on, but the water we ordered was warm, which was more noticeable because it arrived with refrigerated glasses.

Worth returning to; their lunchtime deal looked to be rather good value for money.
