Mexicali: California-Mexican Restaurant




We felt like having a major taste bud adventure when we were in SM North EDSA, The Block the other day. We dined at Mexicali Restaurant.

Mexicali specializes in Northern California-Mexican street food, such as tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. Also on the menu are quesadillas, fajitas, chili con carne, taco salads, combo dinner plates, a selection of delicious rice and grill plates, and even non-meat dishes vegetarians.

The word Mexicali is a combination of Mexico and California, and is the name of an actual town in Northern Mexico close to the California border.


Hubby ordered Mexicali’s Grilled Chicken Plate (Php 199). He’s not into Mexican food that much so he found this dish average-tasting.

This is my Mexican plate – baked [burrito] chicken with beans. Or should I say, baked beans with bits of chicken. If only there were more chicken inside. However, the taste was superb. Next time, I’ll be trying their tacos and burritos.
