Joe Fish Restaurant is serving up some great Mexican fare for those who love spicy Mexican food
Way back in the late eighties, early nineties, Mexican restaurants sprung up around the country. Possibly because of relaxed travel opportunities for South African passport holders more South Africans were able to visit Mexico legally rather than risk a spell in a dreaded Mexican prison. Almost as fast as they appeared many disappeared and although some do still specialise in this tasty, spicy fare.
Well, good news for Mexican food lovers in St Francis! Jeanpierre ’Pedro’, the head chef at “El-Jose Joe Fish” at Cape St Francis Resort has decided to add a few Mexican dishes to his menu on a Wednesday evening. Last Wednesday JP Pedro served up his first Mex-Menu with a selection of Taco’s – Veg, Fish & Beef. I tried all three and although not too crazy about veg, decided to abide by my cardiologist instruction to eat less meat and more veg.
Although I will never become a committed vegetarian the Veg Taco was good, as was the Fish Taco but the Beef, well I could have been back in Tijuana. One word – outstanding. The thinly sliced beef melted in one’s mouth and the spicing was as good as any Mexican spice I have had. Maybe it was not have savoured one of my favourite cuisines in so many tears that created the ecstasy but whatever, it was better than delish.
And the Jalapeno popper was cream on the cake to excuse the pun. Filled with cream cheese and mozzarella, I could certainly order one as a starter.
Not sure what will be on the menu this coming Wednesday but if you are into Mexican maybe give JP Pedro or Jason a call at El-Jose Fish but if it is anywhere near a good as the Beef Tacos, I will be waiting with a Car Park John (most delicious draft beer) in hand.
