Mexicali @ Robinson's Place Ermita

Yes, my fourth Mexicali post. But I love Mexicali, so, yeah! :D

Mexicali in Robinson's Place Ermita was the first Mexicali branch I had been to. That was 7 or so years ago. I have not been here for quite some time since they opened branches nearer my place. The restaurant now looks different from my previous visit but the food is still good.


Taste 

We ordered the Hot and Crispy Chicken Skin Chicharrones, a cup of Sopa de Tortilla (tortilla soup), Ground Beef Burrito, and Solo Nachos.

It was a satisfying dinner. The chicken skin was okay -- not the best I've had but good enough and the serving was big enough for two people to enjoy.

The tortilla soup was good. The last time we were in a Mexicali restaurant, there were only sopa de ajo and sopa de lima available, both of which did not appeal to me (they tasted okay, I was just not into those kinds of soup) so I was delighted to find that sopa de tortilla was available.

The burritos were good, as always. I had to take half of my burrito home and bf also took home his burrito since we were already full from the appetizers, but those take-home burritos still tasted great the following morning.

Nachos tend to be hit-or-miss with me in general but Mexicali's version was good and exceeded my expectations. The toppings were flavorful and they softened up the chips enough for me to enjoy the nachos even though I just had orthodontic braces installed, but not too much so as to make the chips soggy.


Affordability

The food items at Mexicali are reasonably priced.


Interiors

The restaurant's space is wide but shallow. The color scheme is bold and bright and the wooden chairs are colored green and red, giving the place a casual and laid-back atmosphere.

Cleanliness

The place was clean.


Service

The service we got was fast and efficient even though we used a voucher during our visit. We did not have to wait long for the food to arrive.
