Mexican Dinner: Señor Pique!

Long long ago, in April of 2008 when I took over this group (yes... a full six years ago!), our very first dinner was at none other than Señor Pique! And since then, sure, we've paid a visit to a number of other excellent Mexican restaurants. But I decided it's time for another visit to our first venue, which remains consistently among the best Mexican restaurants in the region!

Cuisine - Señor Pique is authentic Mexico City style Mexican food, which to be fair, is not a distinction that I necessarily would recognize. Still, what you will find here is simply a cross-section of all your favorites, from tacos to quesadillas, from enchiladas to tostadas. They may not have the zillion combinations found in some restaurants, but everything I've tried has been outstanding. Their queso fundido appetizer is cheesily amazing; their beef chimichanga is juicy and delicious; their tacos al pastor are the best pork tacos you'll ever taste (and I love the pineapple); their camerones a la diabla (tiger shrimp in poblano garlic cheese sauce) simply have no comparison anywhere. And their espazote rice is beyond delicious, once you get past the fact that it's green! Bottom line, if you like Mexican food (or even if, like me, you're only lukewarm about it), you will love the food here.

Cost - Mexican food is usually on the inexpensive side, and despite being possibly the best in west county, Señor Pique is no exception, with entrees starting around $10 and maxing out under $18. Hard to beat awesome food that's also so reasonable!

Other Info - The restaurant is located in Olde Towne Plaza on the south side of Manchester in Ballwin, between the signals at Ries Rd and Ballpark Dr.  It's on the west end of the center.  Tons of free parking.

I'll be looking forward to seeing lots of my west county foodies at Señor Pique for some delicious Mexican food on Tuesday the 22nd!

    Oh, bye the way. "Habitchwailah" opened in 1972 and is a very up-scale dining experience. $30-50 PP.
    "Poroquia" is a "fun" bar-restaurant with Wait staff dressed as "Bandidos" and acting accordingly. $10-$20. Still less expensive than the "Hotel Zone" pricing.

    For those of you who have or may still visit Cancun, it might interest you to know that: The downtown area of Cancun flanking Avenida Tulum has a series of streets named after flowers. Each of these streets were 1 block long and each block was lined with a wide variety of restaurants numbering in total probably 50 or more.
    Today, due to the popularity of the "all-inclusive" style of vacationing, these restaurants have dwindled to 4-5 total. Sad. Tourism is a bitch which usually caters to the lowest common denominator. However, there are still a few left so, should you visit Cancun, I recommend: "Poroquia" and "La Habuitchwala".
    Regardless of the PR in US newspapers, Mexico is a safe place to travel and visit. I walk the streets in the evening and have never, never had any difficulty and always been treated with civility. Something I cannot say of the French.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
