I had drove past Bandidas Taqueria quite a few times and it was last Christmas that I’ve mentioned to L and Jube that we should try it. However this visit was with neither of them, but with GRock, purely because of our mutual love for sangrias.
It was a very casual place, which was funny as GRock asked me beforehand if he had to dress up LOL. It was indeed a very hippie crowd, a lot of people in tanks and flip flops. You also seat yourself.
We started with a litre of red wine sangria to share. To me it was actually only ok. I enjoyed the one from Cafe Sevilla (San Diego) much more. It wasn’t exactly as fruity as I would’ve liked and it actually tasted a bit watered down. However there are a few other drinks on the menu I would like to try. Plus they have daily drink specials too.
GRock got the Wolf & Goat made into a meal for $3 more. It had guacamole, purple cabbage, pinto beans, red salsa, jack cheese & sour cream. Then he slathered it with hot sauce.
It was huge and he really enjoyed it. It was stuffed with ingredients and I was surprised he could finish it.
I had the Ronny Russell made into an enchilada with mole sauce. It was stuffed with roasted yams and onions, fresh guacamole, black beans, green salsa, purple cabbage, & pumpkin seeds.
It was huge also. However I think that due to the intense sweetness of the yams, I wasn’t able to fully savor the mole sauce. It just seemed like a regular sauce to me. But overall it was very good and since it was so big I was able to pack half of it for lunch the next day.
So it was quite a nice experience here and we would definitely come back, even if it’s just for the drink specials.
