Rojo Amigo Kitchen turns out very credible Mexican and Tex-Mex fare, ranging from more than a dozen burrito variations to less-often-found regional dishes like Cochinita Pibil (Yucatan-style barbecued pork) and Albondigas de Cordero (lamb meatballs). Drinks include Mexican craft beers (Day of the Dead), budget wines, cocktails and a big selection of tequilas and mezcals.
We started a recent meal with an excellent menudo (tripe stew) and some very cheesy quesadillas served with a nice home-made green salsa. Both fish and pork-filled tacos were ample in size and quite satisfying. Other tempting main dishes include Costillas Ahumadas (smoked ribs), and Chicken Mole made with heirloom-breed Daisendori chickens.
The burritos feature some entertaining but perhaps unexpected fillings, such as the Breakfast Burrito stuffed with a cheese omelet and potatoes and the California Burrito with beef and mashed potatoes, so check the menu descriptions before you order.
The dining room is pleasantly cluttered with Mexican-themed bric-a-brac and half-full bottles of mezcal, and seating is comfortable and uncrowded. Unfortunately it can get a bit smoky at times. Budget around Y3000-4500 for dinner with drinks.
