Where would you find Mexican food here in Cebu?
I can only think of Burrito Bar as the most known place. But we tried this restaurant that’s about a stone’s throw away from BTC, which is named La Lagrima Taqueria. The head chef there actually comes from Mexico, and he makes authentic Mexican food at really solid prices, a bit steep, but very cheap when considering all the authentic ingredients such as Mexican salsa, rice, beans and meat.
Now, it’s located in the building that houses Alibyo spa and the gym there. It’s next to BTC and is directly in front of the flyover. It won’t be hard to miss. Now, let’s talk about food! They offer a wide range of tacos, burritos, nachos, quesadillas, enchiladas and all sorts of other great stuff! Now, their food is usually divided into regular and super, with an option for vegetarians as well. Super usually includes cream cheese and guacamole, so if you’re a fan, better try the super options!
You also end up choosing your side of meat. There’s steak, pork, chicken, beef, stomach, tongue and other meats of your picking. It’s all shown below.
This here is the regular taco.
Then here is the regular burrito. It’s about 5-6 inches, filled with salsa, rice, beans, meat and all sorts of good stuff!
You can even have a breakfast burrito with egg and bacon. Doesn’t that sound appetizing? It’s available from 9-11 in the morning, and I’m definitely going to try it one of these days. They serve water, softdrinks and juices, and it’s all reasonably priced.
Here are more pictures of the place. It’s a bit quaint and plain, but it does the job.
Expect to spend about PHP 150-300 per meal with one or two shared side dishes with your friends, which is not bad considering the prices over at Burrito Bar. You can really feel the authenticity of the Mexican food with each bite.
Until next time,
