Chiquito – The Original Mexican Grill & Bar
We were excited to welcome the arrival of Chris and Christine to Cardiff for a 2 days visit. We were thinking hard of where to visit in Cardiff. Though we’ve read through most visitors’ information on Cardiff, we felt as though Cardiff has not much to offer. Sorry if we did bored you guys, but really, it was fun having you guys around. We enjoyed your company a lot, so much laughter and enjoyment, we would be missing you guys a lot after you guys returned to KL.
Here are a few photos taken in Cardiff Bay when sightseeing around Cardiff. We took a boat trip which lasted for approximately 40 minutes in Cardiff Bay. The Flag of Wales, represented by the Red Dragon is flying proudly on the boat. The Pierhead Building can also be seen from the boat.
For dinner, we dined in Chiquito since all of us haven’t tried Mexican food before. Chiquito is located in the Old Brewery Quarter, quite near to the Cardiff Central Bus Station, where other eateries such as La Tasca and Hard Rock Café are located in.
We had a Tequila red snapper at £12.95. The dish was served with Mexican style rice with spicy roasted vegetables topped with baked red snapper fillet with Cuervo Tequila sauce. The rice was nice and flavourful, slightly spicy and suitable for those who enjoy mildly spicy food. The red snapper fillet was large and fresh but it was a little bland.
The flour tortillas were used to wrap all the ingredients above. The combination of the chicken with cheese and sauces were good, I especially enjoy the wrap with loads of sour cream and salsa, it was very appetising. The flour tortillas tasted good too, anything with bread is always good to us.
It was a pleasant dinner, the reason being that there’s great company for the night. Thanks for Chris and Christine for visiting, and thanks for the invitation to Glasgow. At the time you’re reading this post (this is a automatic scheduled post), we’re probably traveling in Glasgow! For more information about this restaurant, please check out their website here.
