Mexicali the right amount of Mexican Spice

I love LOVE LOVE spicy food. It doesn't matter if it's Indian, Mediterreanean or Mexican. As long as it's spicy, I'm all for it!

Last April 24th we went to SM Mall of Asia in Pasay for the annual Aliwan Festival. We woke up quite late, so we rushed in getting ourselves ready and out of the house in time for the start of the parade. When we got to Cubao, we realized we haven't eaten anything yet. So before going to MOA, we decided to stop by SM Cubao and have brunch there.

We ate in Mexicali, located at the back of the Mall, P. Tuazon Avenue entrance. The place is small, it's not even a closed restaurant. So if you're finnicky with privacy issues, you may just want to buy food from the restaurant and bring it somewhere else.

Looking at the menu, we saw that Mexicali is offering Combo Meals. We decided to order combo meal # 7. It's composed of:
1. your choice of filling regular burrito
2. salad
3. rice
4. your choice of enchilada
5. a regular drink of your choice

Hubby ordered a roast beef burrito and I got myself the ground beef enchilada. I'll say that the serving is good for two people! As the burrito already had rice along with the other filling (mexican beans, etc). The enchilada is comparable to my favortie pasta lasagna! The big difference, this is made from tortilla and it's quite spicy.

Thinking about our appetite, since we didn't have breakfast and it was already late, we also ordered a cup of chili con carne, which was served with some nacho chips on the side.

The topping of this cup is really your choice. You can have cream with it and top it off with some cheese just like what we had!

Over all, it was an excellent meal! The service was quite good. Value for your money, well we paid a little over Php500 for everything that we ate, including the drinks that we ordered.
