Review: Dona Cata Mexican Food

by gigi on January 1, 2008

Happy New Year, everyone! :)

My team went to Dona Cata for some Mexican food one day…and also to celebrate Gene’s service anniversary with the company. This place was recommended by Gene and doesn’t have the usual Tex Mex food that is offered at most Mexican places.

There is a large selection of salsas and dips at the front of the restaurant for us to use on the various dishes that are ordered. A lot of them are quite spicy but the variety is a nice deviation from the usual salsa that is offered at most places.

We tried a peanut salsa on the tortillas that were served when we sat down at the table. The peanut flavour was quite light, but that may have been because this dip was quite spicy so it was hard to taste anything else. :)

I am a big fan of torta subs so I decided to try the chicken torta. All the meat here is steamed so I found my chicken to be quite dry. Also in the sub was tomatoes, onions, lettuce, avocados, and mayo. Despite my sub being served immediately after it was made, my bread was already soggy.

I also ordered a mini tortilla with pork and pineapple. The mini tortillas are $1.25 each and seem to be the most popular item here. If you want cheese, I think it costs an extra $0.25 but I like mine without cheese. There are several different meat fillings you can choose from, including chicken, beef, and pork. I added some green tomato salsa to mine. I enjoyed this way more than my torta sub. The tortilla shell was soft and the pork filling was spicy and tasty. I like how because each tortilla is individually priced, you can mix and match and try several different types.

The next time I am here, I will skip the torta sub and order just the mini tortillas. With the different types of meat filling and salsas available, you will have to make several visits before being able to clain you have tried everything. :)
