“Mexican food is so full of colour, life and music. It’s like a pinata exploding in your mouth.” ~Kate Mclennan~
Nowadays, finding a TexMex restaurant is as easy as ABC.
Being a fan of Mexican food, Jen and I didn’t have a hard time looking for one should the cravings set in. Filipinos and Mexicans have similarities in culture, food and even language due to our common root. Both countries were being inhabited by the Spaniards. This historical trail is evident up to this very time.
At Maginhawa street, while eyeing Caffera: Cafe and Camera combined. We intentionally treaded the stretch of this famous street at Sikatuna Village in Quezon City to explore and choose food spots we intend visit in the future. Which obviously made us very hungry.
We weren’t surprised to find out that there are a lot of Texmex spots that we can choose from. We opted to try Casa Quesadilla.
Jen being crazy with quesadillas, immediately entered the multi-colored entrance of Casa Quesadilla. I, on the other hand like quesadillas too but my favorite Mexican food is Chimichangas, though there a few restaurants which offer this, they usually offer Burritos instead. I am good with Burritos but I like Chimis better since the latter has no rice.
The Casa is like a hole in the wall type of Texmex joint. Still, they have a wide array of recipes to choose from.
We just had quesadillas and nachos salad. Quick and light. It took them less than 10 minutes to serve it.
I had to use the loo, and I have to pass by their kitchen to get there and I can attest to the cleanliness of their kitchen. The loo is clean too.
They also offer alcoholic drinks and there are 2 groups enjoying their drinks outside while we dined inside.
And much to our content, their food is satisfying, Texmex is like comfort food to me and Jen.
Now, we’re ready to stride again for our next stop. We passed by a bespoke restaurant on our way to Casa Quesadilla and it honestly looked interesting: When Uan met Sally. While Gourmet Gypsy Art cafe is befitting. =)
Casa Quesadilla is located at Unit 1, 176 Maginhawa, Sikatuna Village, Quezon City
