Literally blown away today. Had Mexican. My taste buds had an orgasm. I am happy.
All right let me just calm down for a moment, take a breath and start again.
Here’s the thing with expats. Most of us are happy to get down and dirty with the local cuisine. I’m all over a good kebab. I’ve accepted the fact that I am more than likely going to have corba (soup) for breakfast and every now and then a neighbour will sacrifice an animal and get busy making enough food to feed the village. I’m totes good with that. I swear. And as an Aussie, I am a big fan of multiculturalism as well as immigration, same-sex marriage and anything else that’s currently political in Oz. I ain’t no Donald Trump. I love everyone (well I hate a few bitches that I went to school with but generally I love everyone) and in reference to this post, I love Mexicans. I don’t want to build no wall. I love their culture. I love their food and their music and their fabulous beaches. I admire their ability to stick it to others and how they support their state and their culture. Mexicans know their shit (and their food) and I respect them for it. One of my fondest memories was of a dirty weekend down in Tijuana when I was in my early-20’s that resulted in a hangover that lasted for a week. Good times.
Anyway as I said up top I had a hella meal today at a little place called Dos Amigos. Now when an expat gives you the thumbs up on a restaurant or a cafe we swarm like ants. Expats appear from every direction and rush to said restaurant to enjoy that little bit of home (or Mexico) and that’s just what is happening with this place.
The restaurant is in Pozcu. I don’t often go to Pozcu as its busy and parking is a bitch so I parked in Forum and wandered over. The restaurant was cute. Nice and modern. Very promising from the get-go.
I had the meat nachos. Nachos usually blow here in Mersin. If you are silly enough to order nachos you will get some Doritos on a plate with some tomato sauce and cheese but not at Dos Amigos. Today’s nachos had it all. They were as close as they could be to the nachos I consumed on that crazy weekend back when I was still hotter than feck. Nacho chips, sour cream, guacamole, refried beans (which were the bomb – I could have eaten a whole plate) and beef perfectly cooked with just enough spice to make me go “Woah!”. My friends both had burritos (one chicken and one beef) and they were good sized servings. The only thing missing was a margarita but I guess I can dream of that next time.
So I’m going to hit you with a “Do Yourself A Favour”. To those of you living in Mersin get down to Dos Amigos and have your mind blown by a damn tasty feed at a freaking reasonable price.
