Comida Internacional – MEXICANO
One of my last meals in Manila, before leaving for Argentina, was Mexican (Ristras at the Fort). I’d like to think they offered legit Mexican food, so I had no plans of trying out this cuisine in BA. But then, people kept raving about La Fabrica del Taco, which apparently had earned itself a reputation for true blue Mexican Tacos. Thanks to Google, I found out that it was closed for the Christmas and New Year holidays (really BA, who does that???) and so avoided a wasted trip.
On the day it opened, I trooped over to Gorriti for lunch. So much for avoiding a wasted trip, because apparently they don’t open till 6 or 7 in the evening. Anyways, I went back after the sun set, and watched the employees of La Fabrica open the doors and set the tables outside. Yes, I was that excited.
I loved how the place was furnished/decorated – so hip, authentic, current and yet effortless.
I remember making a mental note to return here with friends for drinks at night/post party chow. Again, that didn’t happen – there were just too many places to try out!
I had the Carne Asada Gratinado. The beef was so tasty!
For bebidas, I didn’t order my usual Agua sin gas, as I was curious about El Agua de Chavo which is flavored water made from the base of a Jamaican flower (i.e. if I translated correctly).
Mexican hot sauces – so necessary… you know how bland food in Argentina can be.
