The wife and I decided to eat at Eddy’s Cantina this past Saturday afternoon / early evening. We arrived at 4:25pm and we were the only customers! Yeah, not crowded, first in line, first to be served! :discodance:
We started out with a simple appetizer and ordered the chips and salsa, but I went ahead and ordered a few more sides of his different salsas and also guacamole. Here’s a pic.
The wife had two beef tacos in a soft flower tortilla and made it a meal by adding salad, potatos, and rice. Here’s a pic.
I am a very boring dude, so I just ordered my standard Carne Asada Burrito. For those of you who no habla, that would be a steak burrito. It has grilled steak, rice, and beans is all nicely wrapped up in Eddy’s homemade flower tortilla. Here’s a pic.
It doesn’t look like much on the outside, but when you bite into this baby I guarantee you will love it. I ordered another side of guacamole and threw half of it into my burrito and the wife took the other half for her tacos. Here’s pic of the inside.
Everything was great. The wait staff was prompt, courteous, and quick. It was about a 10 minute wait from the time we made our order to the time we received our main courses. That was about perfect, because we had already received the salsa and chips appetizer and were busily at work on that while I was enjoying my first, or was that my second or third?..oh well…I was drinking San Francisco Steamer beer with my meal and it too, was awesome. The music was on at a reasonable level where we could still enjoy our dinner conversation, but had the nice Mexican music in the background. My wife and I especially enjoyed Eddy’s fresh homemade flour tortillas. Eddy and Jo were friendly and charming as usual. Regarding no other customers being there…yeah…well that was true for only about 5 minutes. By the time we had left, around 5:30pm or so, Eddy’s Cantina had filled four other tables with a total of nine customers. And, as we were walking down the stairs heading back to the car park, another group of four were making their way up to Eddy and Jo’s place. Here’s a hot tip…If you go on Saturday…get there for an early dinner like we did around 4:30pm.
The only negative thing about our meal was the guacamole because it didn’t taste like “real authentic” guacamole, but that’s not Eddy’s fault. I believe there is something wrong with Taiwanese avocados because to me, they have no taste at all! The texture is correct, but strangely, no taste. I’ve even purchased Taiwanese avocados to make guacamole at home and they look like avocados, but they don’t smell or taste like avocados at all. Hawaiian avocados, Californian avocados, Texan avocados, Mexican avocados, have deep green meat with a very strong smell and flavor, but Taiwanese are just bland. Has anyone else experienced this or is it just me? Anyway, not a big deal in relation to the dining experience as a whole.
If you haven’t tried Eddy’s Cantina yet, get your butts up here for a good dining experience!
Thanks Eddy and Jo for another nice dinner out!
