Review: Mi Mexico in Bellingham

by gigi on October 29, 2007

With the Canadian dollar being so favourable compared to the US$ these days, Jenkins and I made yet another trip down to Bellingham. It is so close and there are enough stores to occupy us for an afternoon. We are also too lazy to drive all the way to Seattle. :) We normally drive back to Vancouver before eating dinner but this time, we stayed later than usual so we decided to eat at Mi Mexico. It is located at 241 Telegraph Road in Bellingham across from Bellis Fair and Linens & Things.

This place was actually recommended by Gene, although he could not remember the exact location or even the name of the place at the time. :) It wasn’t too difficult to find though. When we walked inside, the restaurant was quite busy and full of people.

As soon as we sat down, our server came with a big pitcher of water and a big bowl of fresh tortilla chips and salsa. Yum! I am a sucker for tortilla chips and these were not too oily. The salsa was much spicier than I had anticipated but still very tasty.

I must confess that I am not very familiar with Mexican food as I don’t eat it very often. However, I decided on the chicken fajitas as that sounded very good. This turned out to be a pretty good choice as I saw that many other people in the restaurant also ordered the same thing. My dish came out pretty quickly and in several parts. First came the chicken, which was served on a sizzling iron plate with onions and green peppers.

My tortilla shells came in its own container and was also piping hot. I had a choice of soft tortilla shells or crunchy taco shells but I felt that the soft shells would be more healthy. :)

I also had a huge plate with salsa, guacamole, sour cream, rice, and beans. I constructed my fajitas with the soft shells and lined the inside with a combination of items from my various plates. The chicken was tender and not dry at all. I also liked the guacamole and salsa a lot. If I had known the dish was this big, I probably would have shared with Jenkins. :) I found the rice to be a bit dry and there was too much cheese in my beans for my liking.

Jenkins ordered one of their large combo plates for about $10.95. These were a pretty good deal and allowed you to try a variety of their more popular items. Jenkins opted for the one with one taco and two burritos. He found the combination of the beans and cheese to be quite filling but the overall taste was not too bad.

Overall, the food at Mi Mexico was not too bad but I am still trying to figure out what kind of dishes I like at Mexican restaurants in general. The next time I go, I will have to look for something a bit lighter. The servers at Mi Mexico are all very friendly though and we liked how quick and efficient their service was.
