I was out this evening about 6:00 and trying to think of where to eat and it hit me. MARIO’S! The three of us headed that way to test the restaurant I wrote about here.
We arrived at Mario’s and sat outside.
As you saw from the menu on the other post, there are a lot of things to sample. Since I wanted to try several things we ordered a medium Bandeja Mexicana (Tacos, Burritos and Nachos)
Here is what came out.
It was so good, I think a few close-ups are called for. This is Mario’s version of Mexican food and he has a new fan.
This must be the nacho. It was absolutely outstanding. I loved it!
This must be his burrito. I loved it too!
There were two types of taco. One was cheese and one was with meats. I loved them also. Both kinds were soft tacos.
He had a green hot sauce that was very good and some red salsa that was great also.
In the center was a tostado covered in lettuce, salsa and tomatoes. I loved it!
What more can I say, I will be going back. There are plenty more things I want to try.
A good friend had told me that the Brochete de filete is “to die for”. If you happen to be in David after 4:00 PM and need to put something in your belly, you now have my recommendation of a great Mexican food place. It is not TexMex, but it ranks as the tastiest food I have had in some time.
While we were there, Mario came by the table to say hello. I told him I would be back and I would bring more people. If you drop in, tell him you found out about his restaurant on Chiriquí Chatter.
Here is a Google Map to the restaurant’s location.
