Posting for a good friend who has opened an authentic Mexican eatery in Chung Li. The lao ban’s name is Isa Bayardo. He’s been in Taiwan for around ten years off and on, mostly teaching. For the last year, he’s had the itch to share some of the cooking he brought in for his students/coworkers with a wider audience.
Mexico Sabroso has been open for just over a month. It’s a very close to Chung Yuan University (the Christian one) in Chung Li - we’ll try to get a map up (paging Truant?). If you are on the road to Chung Yuan, the last traffic light before the entrance is where you want to turn left. Proceed about 50 meters, and you’ll see the place on your right - it’s set a little off the road, so just keep your eyes open. He’s got ample seating - room for 40 or so (though it does fill up at dinner time) - as well as take out.
The prices are great - here’s the menu (that is currently being expanded):
Best of all, the food is authentically prepared on the premises, including the salsas.
Isa’s got plans to add entertainment and such in the future, but is concentrating on the food and service at the moment. He’ll likely post something here once he gets a bit of time free - some of the family will be here in the next week from Mexico to give him a hand.
If you’re in the area, check it out.
