Chihuahua Mexican Grill and Margarita Bar: Cool Hot Sauce Library and Fierce Mexican Dinner

December 13, 2013

The family is quite fond of Mexican cuisine so we dine at every Mexican restaurant we encounter.  A few months ago, we spotted Chihuahua Mexican Grill and Margarita Bar at Greenbelt 2.  It was on the outside or street-side portion so you it is not noticeable.

I find it quite odd that they have their sign inside and not outside the store.

It has a huge space which makes it a great party area with a wide dance floor.  It is equipped with  a sound system, disco ball and colored lights.  The voluminous party photos plastered on its red walls insinuated that its a wild party place perhaps on late hours or private events.  The interior appears like an American retro 70's diner than a Mexican Grill Bar to me though.

hot sauce library
Hot Sauce Library
The have a cool Hot Sauce Library.  Although it is extensive, I wished they were categorized to spiciness level so I could easily decide on which to try.

salsa bar
Salsa Bar
The Salsa Bar had chipotle, tomatillo, pico de gallo, jalapeños and fresh limes.  Unfortunately, the jalapeños was empty but there's the chiptotle made from its dried form.  I feasted on the tomatillo and pico de gallo which was delicious!

Food
tortilla soup
Tortilla Soup (160 php)
This is the best Tortilla Soup I have ever tried!  We had to order one for each because no one wanted to share.  It had a stupendously tasty broth with diced herbs and vegetables, chunks of chicken, topped with tortilla chips, pico de gallo and grated cheddar and Monterey Jack chees.  It has a mild spicy kick to it.

chicken tacos
Chicken Tacos (295 php)
An order of the Chicken Tacos is composed of 3 pieces and a salsa.  It is a hearty taco made with soft flour tortilla shells, cheese, pico de gallo, salsa, lettuce, sour cream and chicken strips.  We loved this! 

carnitas burritos
Carnitas Burrito (295 php)
The heaviest of the options is the Carnitas Burrito.  It has refried beans, guacamole, Mexican rice, black beans, cheese, pico de gallo, salsa, sour cream, lettuce and carnitas (roasted pulled pork).  The carnitas was tender!

picadillo burrito bowl
Picadillo Burrito Bowl (295 php)
It's my first time to try a Burrito Bowl so thrilled that they offered one.  The Picadillo Burrito Bowl is a stainless steel bowlful of Mexican Rice, cheese, refried beans, black beans, guacamole, pico de gallo, salsa, sour cream and picadillo (spicy ground beef).  This is so good that I didn't mind getting down and dirty like a hungry chihuahua to enjoy this.

chicken salad chihuahua
Chicken Salad (295 php)
The Chicken Salad is an fiesty stainless steel bowlful of fresh lettuce topped with guacamole, cheese, chili con carne, pico de gallo, salsa, sour cream, corn kernels and chicken cubes.  This is surprisingly overwhelmingly  good for a healthy Mexican dish.

These are the hot sauces I tried along the way.  All of them were not enough to make me surrender.  Anyone know which is the hottest hot sauce in their library?

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Chihuahua Mexican Grill and Margarita Bar is on top of our list when it comes to authentic Mexican cuisine.  I usually find it difficult to finish a Mexican meal but this one got as all wanting for more.  We didn't feel the heaviness in the meal at all.  We were instead allured by the fresh and bold flavors of every ingredient.  Not to mention, their price is really affordable!
