Wow!!!! Finally some great food without nasty refried beans and grease! Opened officially March 7th it is already busy. I ate Tuesday afternoon when a steady stream of people made their way through. When I drove by at 630 the place was packed with a lineup, clearly Belleville has been desperate for this food.

I was so happy to find a varied menu that was not highlighted by quesadillas and refried beans made into a sloppy mess. I had a great tomato and fried tortilla soup, a shot of lime and a sprinkle of cilantro and the recipe will be perfected. I think hot or cold this will be a winner. Skipping the tacos I choose the pombaza a Mexico city speciality. A mix of potato and chorizo (sausage) is placed within a bun that has been dipped in poblano pepper salsa and fried, topping of a little cheese and lettuce finished the sandwich. I was fearful of a heavy, greasy sandwich but was entirely surprised and delighted by a light, flavourful sandwich. The addition of some salsa brought the spice and heat up a notch and made for a item I will definitely reorder.

There is a little patio in the back, overlooking the Moira River, which I think will become the hit of the summer. Excellent food, a cerveza and a quire patio is going to be the talk of the town. Marlem and her brother have created the brightest eating spot in the Belleville in a couple of years.

To start, we have been anticipating the opening of this restaurant for months, and having been to Mexico (a few times between my partner and I), we had both high expectations and the bar has been set rather high as well. Upon arriving, we were greeted with a friendly "Hola" and we were seated almost immediately. Having gotten there early, we did notice that there were many reservations- so I would so this next time FOR SURE, as seating is limited. The decor takes us back to Mexico. We were given a complimentary basket of handmade tortillas and smokey salsa to warm us up! To start, we shared the Beef Sopes! I've never been a fan of refried beans, but my boyfriend thought they were so yummy and could not stop himself. I had gotten the Tostadas de Tinga- they were delicious! My boyfriend got the Chorizo Tacos and gobbled them right up! For the value, you cannot go wrong with this restaurant. It is a new gem of culture in the downtown core of Belleville, and this very well could be a jumping off point to entice more retailers and restaurants to move down there! Congratulations on your busy Grand Opening, Chilangos! We look forward to eating here again!!!

Even though this Restaurant just opened, I already had the chance to taste several different meals and I was never disappointed. The Amazing and very sweet location combined with great food are just perfect. Congratulations.
