Last weekend, I joined my parents for dinner at Escobar, which bills itself as “Mexian restaurant and live music venue at the heart of Leeds.”

Despite only three or four of their twenty tables being occupied when I turned up, they seemed somewhat startled that I had turned up, but a quick double check against my booking seemed to pacify the situation. “We’re short staffed tonight” the waiter explained.

The menu was reasonable, it offered a good selection of fajita and fajita style products, though not much else. I decided to go for a burrito, which was enjoyable and more than I could eat (you should now have playing in your head the phrase “wow, this burrito is delicious, but it is filling.” 😉 ).

Not a bad place to eat, but I’m not in any hurry to go back.

Another Sunday night having rolled around we headed down to Birstall for a meal at Chiquito which the sign outside reliably informs me is the “original Mexican grill & bar.”

While I was a little disappointed by the food, that was mainly due to the size of the portions which as much as I complain is probably a good thing for me in the end. I feel it’s important my meal comes with as much vegetables as possible though as it’s like my one source of vegetables during the week lol.

Afterwards we headed back home via Hunslet to pick up dessert as Craig was on the close. I can highly recommend buying a McFlurry and a brownie and mixing them together, it’s a winning combination.
