MEXICALI

Flavors of a California-Mexican Kitchen
Here in SM Bacolod

I love Tex-Mex food and got curious when I was invited at the opening of MEXICALI at SM City Bacolod. The restaurant is quite small and during peak hours, I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be difficult to secure a seat here. Nevertheless, they bring you some of the good things from a Mexican-California Kitchen. This new Bacolod restaurant, as long as it maintains service and quality, will surely be a hit around here.

Here are my top three (3) picks that I thoroughly enjoyed there. You will also like dining in such a festive atmosphere.

Mexicali Carnitas with Rice

This dish was made into somewhat like pulled pork but it’s really flavorful and satisfying. I am not sure if carnitas is supposed to be prepared that way, as I have tried one that doesn’t look and taste like this, but hey, as long as it tastes good, right? It is served with salad greens, salsa, and rice. P318 this plate.

Mexicali Picadillo Quesadilla

The picadillo quesadilla is the tortilla cheese sandwich with Mexican ground beef. I like it because their beef filling is flavorful. And don’t forget to dip it in the yogurt sauce because it surely enhances the flavor some more. P180 per order (4 slices).

Mexicali Chili Con Carne with Nachos

They are serving the traditional chili con carne topped with grated cheddar cheese. The sauce is mildly spicy and the red chili beans are abundant with every spoonful. Mix it well with the cheese and top it on the nachos (or was it tortilla chips) that are served with it. A lovely snack!  P129.

Of course, there are other things that you might like — I just ranked the top 3 that I liked. Of course, they have the enchilada meal, the burritos served in three ways (I had the San Diego style), and as a side dish, have some potato wedges, too. These are really good that I know both kids and young at heart will love.

Potato wedges. Sorry, I forgot the price, but this is really good so order this as a siding to your main meal.
Mexicali burritos - Bacolod restaurant
This is their beef burrito served with chips. I like it because it is meaty, as in with slices of beef, but there’s flavor and aroma that I am looking for that I didn’t quite find. But I think there are those who will already find this pretty good.
Mexicali arroz ala cubana - Bacolod restaurant
The arroz ala cubana is a satisfying meal for some. This one, however, I found it too saucy. It tastes good, but just not quite the one I am looking for. At least you know how it looks like.
Mexicali nachos - Bacolod restaurant
The nachos that’s good for sharing. This is pretty good for a big group. I appreciated the fact that it had pickled Jalapeños but I dunno why it didn’t taste as good as what I had before in a different restaurant. It lacked flavor. But well, that’s just the way it is prepared here.

Soyrizo taco salad.
Mexicali enchiladas - Bacolod restaurant
Enchiladas with rice and salad. It’s pretty good but you have to eat it immediately. But I would rather have it without rice, just the salad.

Mexicali SM Bacolod is located at the ground floor, north wing, of SM City Bacolod.
