I’d been listening to about Juanita’s Kitchen for a short while. A 100% Gluten Free eatery in Preston that includes genuine Mexican delicacies. I lastly had the prospect to test them out one Saturday with my dad. Yow will discover them at 219 Excessive Avenue in Preston and luxuriate in dinner from 6pm til 9pm Wedensday to Sunday or Lunch 11am til 3pm Thursday or Sunday. There’s off-street parking accessible or it’s only a quick stroll from Bell Station or cease 45 on the route 86 tram.
There was just one different desk once we turned up at 12.30 on Saturday. Though extra tables filtered in whereas we have been having fun with our meals. So I’d recommend making a reserving. It was a pleasant day once we arrived so I began off with an Iced Espresso ($4.50). With this Iced Espresso, it’s important to combine it collectively your self, which I loved. You’ll get espresso ice cubes and heat milk. The interactivity was one thing new for me and enjoyable.
With so many choices to select from, Dad and I made a decision we’d check out luck and a bit bit of virtually all the pieces. Due to this fact we began with Tacos ($6.50 every). We each opted for pork, I select the espresso marinated pork and pop the pork chorizo. These are mushy shell tacos, generously stuffed and effectively balanced with flavour. The marinated pork melted in my mouth with a deep wealthy flavour. While dad’s chorizo had an important kick of warmth. You need to use the cabbage to chill your mouth down if it’s too scorching. It was good for us although. An excellent starter and actually should you aren’t that hungry, it could possibly be a full meal too.
For mains, Dad went with the Enchilada ($17.50). It got here with mozerella, pork chorizo, beans, rice and salsa. He hates avocado in order that they fortunately left that off. This can be a actually good dimension and intensely filling. Two enchiladas lined in a scrumptious sauce and cheese sitting atop a pleasant heap of rice and beans with a contemporary little salad on the aspect. Give me this any day of the week and I’d be glad.
I personally ordered greater than I may eat, oops. Nonetheless, it was value it. For my most important I went with the Quesadillas ($12.50). It’s a Mexican toasted cheese sandwich. Want I say extra? To go along with that I ordered a aspect of Patatas ($5.00) which I evaluate to loaded potato gems. I actually didn’t want it, however I actually wished it. Actually, the Patatas may have been my most important by themselves, it’s a extremely respectable serving to.
I ought to actually speak about my most important although, once more mushy tortillas, generously flled along with your selection of filling and cheese then pressed and heated to perfection. I selected the rooster which had a beautiful flavour. On the aspect we did get some tomatillo and chipotle salsa on the aspect which provides extra dimension and seasoning. When you like rooster and cheese toasties, positively do that. Once more it’s a good dimension too.
Lastly, we completed off with their Beetroot Brownie. Though, the Apple & Walnut Chai Tostada sounded superb. I may need to return and check out that one. The beetroot brownie is extremely moist and far to my dads shock didn’t style like beetroot. You do get this earthiness I discover, however it helps carry out that chocolate notice. It isn’t a very candy dessert, nonetheless the coconut cream added some gentle sweetness. The blueberries additionally assist with that fruity tartness. Would I eat it once more? Sure. I actually need that tostada although.
That’s it for our go to to Juanita’s Kitchen. They are going to be on the Gluten Free Expo this weekend, promoting their sauces and marinades. I actually would love to return to strive extra of the menu as a result of it’s decently priced and actually good servings.
