You know a place is really good when you are a meat lover and you don't mind eating (and loving!) the vegetarian options on the menu. The food in this little hole in the wall is simply something you can't get enough of.
While they serve common items on the menu you will find in most mexican restaurants as staples - fajitas, tacos, burritos etc. - the way they are made here is something else. Fresh, to go and nothing like fast food. The vegetarian burrito is usually why I would come down here, back in the day when I used to work and live in Saskatoon, but their are other options on the menu as well. Other things I would recommend are, besides the burritos of course: pork fajitas, beef enchiladas, or if you are short on money, grilled tacos. The prices are not too high for the food though.
First heard about this place when it was featured on SCN, the now defunct public television station in Saskatchewan. A really nice story of someone who is trying to re-create the flavours from his homeland in the prairies. I skipped the plates that charge you essentially $5 for beans and rice (fillers) and opted to order two of each kinds of tacos, empanadas, quesadillas, and tamales for about $1.75 each. The portions left me wanting, but the flavours were dead on except for the tamales which were made with too much broth/liquid and not enough masa harina (perhaps they were running low?).
Loved the funky, bohemian decor and Mexican groceries when you walk in. Would have dined in but Uncle insisted it was a shady part of town.
