Evil eye is slightly different to both these places, since it offers a single dish to go alongside some American craft beers and Spanish lagers. The humble burrito.
The restaurant itself is of a modest size, the restrictions of a shop frontage on Smithdown Road allowing as such. It has been decked out in cult Mexican film posters, sugar skulls and other central latin American finery which wouldn’t be out of place in somewhere such as Mission in San Francisco. The proprietors have made good use of the space, not cramming in too many tables in the hope of catching swarms of students in their dark and spicy web. The service is friendly, efficient and pretty simple; pretty much all you can ask for.
So how are the burritos and side dishes I hear you all cry? Well, in short, consistent and overall rather… Bueno. They are packed well with adobo beef, chicken or other meat, refried beans, rice and vegetables along with a lubricating and tasty sauce of your choosing. The burritos themselves are pretty tidy too, presented in foil and folded providing good integrity for the duration of the fiesta. The chips were a little greasy on the first visit, plus some of the dishes were not quite available at first (still wondering what the adobo corn bites are like), but for the price you’ll not feel too hard done by. The quality of the meat is reasonable, the execution is absolutely fine.
Hasta luego mi rasa!
