Bandidas Taqueria

Bandidas Taqueria exterior

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.

Bandidas Taqueria interior

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.

Bandidas Taqueria: red wine sangria

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.

Bandidas Taqueria: Wolf and Goat Burrito

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.

Bandidas Taqueria: Ronny Russell enchilada with mole sauce

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.
