After the introduction I made in my last post, here's the best part: FOOD TASTING! Upon arrival, I was given a Mexican signature drink Horchata. At my first sip, I immediately savored the drink because the cinnamon was very distinct that you hardly can ignore the taste. It is not everyday that you can drink cinnamon. Usually, it just provides the aroma.in the drink.
Along with horchata, we were served with an authentic Mexican nacho. You may have tried nacho in bars and grills but what makes an authentic nacho is the guacamole. Guacamole is only avocado that makes it more appetizing. You got to appreciate the preparation because the guacamole is not easy to make.
The nacho is truly a heavy snack because of the beefy filling. If you don't find it heavy yet, then the Chicken Quesadilla will which is the next course. Quesadilla is like a flat meat pie similar to pizza slices but smaller. Unlike pizza, the chicken quesadilla is not baked just like the unleavened bread in the Mediterranean.
Eating at Hermanos made me realize that there are more Mexican food besides taco and quesadilla. The other way to enjoy taco is the Rolled Taco. It may look like a Pinoy lumpia but it will give you a spicy kick once you taste it.
What I didn't expect from A Mexican taco is the Fish Taco. I never thought fish can make a good taco out of it.It does not have an aftertaste and it has a more appealing look. The Fish Taco is also Hermanos' bestseller.
What's Mexican food without churros. Instead of chocolate. The churros served with caramel for dipping which is I prefer instead of the usual chocolate. Tried their churros without dipping and it still taste good.
Hermanos also serve imported Mexican beer. You can be assured that the food served fresh especially since they make their salsa sauce everyday. As for authenticity, they even have to import ingredients from Mexico since there is no alternate ingredients here.
Hermanos Taco House continues to expand and is open for franchise. Watch out as they will soon open in Makati and also has a spot inside Ateneo campus. Hermanos was nominated many times and is listed one of the top ten Mexican restaurants by Manila's Best.
