Montezuma's @ Glenelg
Good morning everyone! I am rather glossy eyed as I write this blog after watching the longest Australian Open match last night. For a long time I've given up on Montezuma's after a couple of bad experiences at other locations. One day my partner came home with a $100 voucher for Montezuma's so we decided to try this one down at Glenelg on Partridge Street. It was beautiful weather and the sun was shining onto the front of the restaurant. It actually kind of made us feel like we were on a Mexican coast with the bright coloured decor and pinatas!

I must give a special mention to the hostess who was fantastic and gave wonderful service and recommendations. We started the night with a Half Serve of Nachos and Queso Fundido along with a serve of sour cream and guacamole. Quese Fundido was recommended by the hostess and is a blend of melted cheeses, fresh ripe tomatoes, onions and peppers served with corn chips. A good recommendation. Very cheesy and yummy! A half serve of nachos is $9.95 which only comes with corn chips served on a bed of beans topped with cheese and their ranchero sauce. Guacamole comes at $4.95 a bowl and sour cream $2.95. Quite frankly I wasn't too impressed with the fact that to make it a proper dish of nachos u need to spend an extra $8 and that's not even with any meat.

We love our chilli so we ordered a Hot ranchero sauce @ $2.50. Moving on to mains, we both decided to go for combinations to try more things. La Jolla - Chorizo enchilada, beef enchilada, sour cream with refried beans and rice. It was rather tasty. The rice wasn't under-cooked like the one at Hawthorn and the fillings were tasty.

Combination Special (Chicken) comprised of Chilli Con Carne, Chicken Taco, Chicken and Sour Cream Enchilada with Rice. It was all tasty and the dish was extremely filling. In fact both dishes weren't short on servings and with cheese, rice and beans it certainly fills you up. Chicken was tender, and the chilli con carne had good flavour to it. I would have personally liked it spicy but it was good nonetheless.

Mr. Appetite just couldn't let go the chance of trying their Mexican Date Cake. I could only manage one teaspoonful but that was enough to enjoy this moist and delicious cake. It was served with ice cream and a whole lotta cream!

Overall we had a fun enjoyable experience. The food was better than the previous two places I went to and the service was significantly better. Prices are good and servings are decent. It's a great family place as well with the fun decor and diverse menu choices.
