Guelaguetza: There's a Cricket on my Plate (04/07/2008)


I've been sifting through some of my old writings and I realized that I have a whole bunch of food reviews that I never got round to posting on the blog. And because I REALLLLLY don't want to start studying, I'm going to do some more food blogging/procrastination. So here they are, reviews from yesteryear.


(Chupalines: good stuff)

Guelaguetza is alright. And I don't mean that in a negative way. In their defence, I only went to try their chupalines (crickets) so I probably didn't get to enjoy the full Guelaguetza experience. The chupanlines were good...but nothing special...apart from being a HUGE portion (I had to box half of it...which I reheated and had with some rice for dinner. It was actually really good). I mean, I wouldn't NOT order it again, but it just wasn't very "WOW!! What IS this Godsend of a food????!?!" The complimentary nachos with mole sauce were pretty good too. Very tangy...

(Wrap it in a tortilla)

I DID love the interior decor. Yes, it's "gaudy" (think plastic tablecloths, clashing knick-knacks, and a TV in the corner playing 90s Spanish soaps) but it's cute! It's in this type of place where you know you can totally relax and enjoy your food.

Service was nice. I liked my waiter.

I'll probably go again...just so I can be fair to this place. It seems as if it could be promising...
