M16-41 Elliott St, Auckland CBD, NZ
So the other night I went out for dinner with my friends at Besos Latinos and it was nice because it was definitely different and out of my comfort zone. It is a Latin based restaurant located in Elliott Stables. I had never been there before and I didn’t know what to expect so my assumptions were it was just like any other Mexican restaurant but boy was I wrong!
Right from the start as soon as you walk into the restaurant you immediately feel like you’re in a different country! You’re surrounded by a sea of bricks and Mexican decor which makes you feel like you’re in Mexico ready to order a bottle of Corona! There were also skeleton statues which celebrated the Day of the dead which I thought was pretty awesome, some may find it a bit creepy, there was also a water fountain in the middle of the restaurant which gave it an outdoor / indoor type of feeling without being outdoor at all!
The menu was great, very Latina. It had a range of classic Mexican food such as Tacos, Enchiladas, Quesadilla’s and of course Guacamole and Corn Chips. I ordered the Vegetarian Quesadilla and it was delicious! It had just the right amount of cheese and the vegetables were seasoned well. The food was great and the price was awesome because it was very affordable!
