Baja Mexican Cantina

We were there last Friday ... read some not so good review but still want to try it myself.

Baja Mexican Cantina is a welcome addition to the Greenbelt 3 dining scenery. It offers variety of Mexican food and cocktails at affordable (compare to other resto in GB) price.

Their staffs were friendly, courteous and attentive. The service was quick.

Foods:

Tortilla soup.P85 - Creamy type tortilla soup, the taste is flavorful but a bit too spicy.

Carne asada nachos.P245 - The serving was small, nacho chips were not crispy but was tolerable...


Regular Soft Taco.P75- The ground meat was tasty; but it’s just way (again) too small. I can eat 3-4 pieces of it in one sitting.
Spicy Chicken quesadillas.P145
Pescado ala vera cruz. Pan fried fish fillet with baja sauce and black beans.P265. The fish was fresh, the dish was spicy- my friend who ordered this was disappointed.

Chicken Burrito. P185 - The food description reads Shredded chicken in adobo sauce and cheese. Unlike other burrito, their burrito doesn’t have rice nor beans, which I find weird and an extra sourcream cost P15. But in fairness the taste was just ok (according to Rols).

Overall, Food prices are reasonable but the most important thing during a soft opening was not met - which is food quality. It really needs to be improved. Anyway, I would come back to this place next time; I think they deserve a second chance.

To Baja: Your official receipt state " for comments and suggestion please call ***Thank You*** " but no phone number was written :)

That's All!

Looks like I should not prioritize this one the next time I visit GB. But in the photos, all looked yummy!

There's plenty of Mexican restaurants in NY, especially in Queens where a big chunk of immigrants from across the border live. I should start sampling some of their dishes.

Calvin said...

man at P75 those tacos are indeed small. mag mexicali na lang ako. i guess the place is a flop for now after seeing two unfavorable reviews about it.

shella said...

I love Mexican food, but that fish vera cruz is so different from the one I have eaten in Baja and the one I have dwnld to cook at home.

I love fish vera cruz, yummy.

Guys there has been a lot of talk about rice in burrito. Let me just clarify that rice in burrito is only a filler to make a burrito bigger thats why mexican places here put rice.
To nomadic pinoy: I also live in nyc for a long time and spent some time in san diego and the good mexican joints don't serve rice in their burritos right? I've just been having this discussions with my friends since moving back here. Heres a site which teaches you how to make a good chicken burrito so you can enjoy it at your own home and its easy to make. try it out and let me know how it turns out. You can adjust the amounts of the ingredients depending on your preference :) Enjoy!

I'd have to say, this place is close to the restaurants in LA. i think philippines is confused of what the taste of mexican food is. i feel bad for the owners. i loved it. mexican is not for everyone but it's for me.
