Bonita Bonita

Where flowers and fluoroscent chairs and plates flirt with skull art and ghostly candles, the scene is an electric vibe of modern Mexico.

Luck had set us a table for two. Our entree started the dinner date with crisp succulent bites of calamari on warm salsa, red cabbage and refreshing lettuce tacos, topped with creamy guacamole and spring onions.

A special for the day, my taco consisted of eggplant, crisp tofu and sweet chili salsa and carrot and radish pickles. More sweet than sour with crunches in the right places.

A main to share, one large pillow of soft tortilla hiding a treasure trove of mushrooms and creamy cheese, topped with fresh tomato, onion and coriander salsa and a kick of jalapeno sauce.
