Tex Mex 2 is situated in Thistle Street between Hanover and Frederick Street. I have eaten here many times before and sampled some of their fabulous Margaritas and Mexican food. No alcohol yesterday lunchtime for the three of us who were dining, we had to return to work after.
They do a business lunch during the week and guarantee to have you out in 45 minutes, which makes it a great option if you work in town. 2 course £8.00 and 3 courses (if you can manage) is £10.00.
The food and service that we received was nothing short of excellent and this is definately in my top 5 places to eat in Edinburgh at the moment.
We arrived at 1pm and as soon as we sat down, we were given a bowl of paprika popcorn which was a nice touch as I am normally chomping on the table with hunger before I order.
It didn’t stop me going for the three courses though (the other two went for two courses)
The choices are good – nachos, quesadillas (veg, chorizo or chicken), guacamole/salsa with corn chips and bowl of chilli.
The size of my starter was impressive, a huge helping of guacamole and enjoy corn chips to scoop it up with.
Again, for main courses, the choices are good. Mex burgers, chimichangas, burritos, enchiladas, chilli main and wraps with vegetarian choices.
We were all happy with our mains and the presentation for two of them was beautiful (the chilli looked ok). The general conversation at the table was ‘mmmmmmm’ and ‘this is delicious’ and ‘what a big portion’, Will let the pics speak for themselves.
They really were all delicious, I sampled all three dishes and my chimichanga was stuffed to the brim with chicken, certainly no scrimping with portion size.
Dessert choice was key lime pie, chocolate brownie or just ice cream. I am extremely pleased to report that Tex Mex II falls into my extremely hard-to-get-in-category of ‘decent pudding size’. At last, another restaurant that gives you a proper sized dessert.
