There are two dishes I had for my meal. The first dish is the sopa de mariscos. It is clear red seafood soup garnished with parsley. It looks like tomato soup because it is red and there are tomatoes in it but it tastes very hot and spicy. I believe a lot of chilies is used in making the soup. Luckily, the sweetness of the tomatoes and carrots in the soup can help to balance the soup's spiciness. The soup is not thick but as watery as Chinese soups. The vegetables are cooked till very soft. The prawns and fish in the soup are tender. The parsley not only makes the bowl of soup look delicious but also adds a refreshing taste to the soup.

The second and last dish I had is the enchiladas de rez. The enchiladas are topped with chili con carne, cheese as well as raw carrots and onions. The tortillas are made from ground maize, judging from its colour which is yellow. I have never seen a traditional Mexican dish made using corn tortillas. The tortilla is sheer and chewy. The shredded beef is tender. The chili con carne is gritty and adds a spicy flavour to the dish. The cheese is stretchy and makes the dish taste a bit salty. The crunchy raw vegetables gave the dish a refreshing flavour. The strips of carrots are a bit sweet while the pieces of onions are a bit pungent. There can be more enchiladas on the plate because in my opinion, the serving is not sufficient.

Overall, the dishes look and taste awfully great. I would want to have a dish of sopaipillas for dessert and a glass of tequila sunrise, both offered by the restaurant as well, to end the meal but I could not afford for either of the two anymore. I hope I can come to this restaurant at Holland Village another time for more Mexican delights.
