Chihuahua, Takapuna, Auckland

Chihuahua is a reasonable mexican restaurant located in Takapuna. Jane had come across it in Channel magazine (a local magazine for Takapuna) and we decided to give it a go.

We started with the rattlesnake salsa that was absolutely superb. It is thoroughly recommended.

I had a burrito for my main and was a bit disappointed. It was smaller than I expected and I found it to be lacking in flavour. I did spice it up with the chilli sauces that were available on the table but I was still underwhelmed.

Jane enjoyed the half short ribs she had which was accompanied by corn encrusted in parmesan and chilli that she also really enjoyed.

We also had some buffalo wings, that were nicely cooked but I thought lacked anything special. I would however order them again.

For dessert Jane had the soft centred chocolate pudding with chilli that was perfectly cooked and the chilli had a decent kick to it. A magnificent dish that I obviously needed to help her with.

The service was good and the food arrived in a timely manner. We would return, but I will order differently.
