Made in Mexico, Newmarket, ON- My Review

So, finally after months and months of being open, my family and I had dinner last night at Made in Mexico in Newmarket, Ontario.

The restaurant was full, always a great sign.  The look and ambiance were very nice and functional for big parties.

The food was amazing.  My son and I ordered Nachos Rancheros– nachos melted cheese, refried beans with sour cream and jalapeno peppers.   It was delicious and s-o-o-o-o filling. Nacho Rancheros was $14.95  (very reasonably priced) but gave enough for one more meal.

My 6-year-old daughters’ ordered the kid’s meal of cheese nachos.  Again, they loved the food and even have enough for lunch today. The kid’s meal also comes with a drink and ice cream, all for $5.95.

Looks were deceiving, the food portions were very generous.

Our server Jorge, told me a few times that what I was ordering was a lot of food and let me know in advance.  Too much food is never a bad thing.

The service was amazing and Jorge was friendly and very quick with serving drinks and meals.

Overall, my experience was amazing.  I enjoyed the food, the service, the ambiance and have nothing but great things to say.

I will definitely go back again, and thanks to Made in Mexico for making this a great dining experience.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit, please do.  You will not be disappointed.

Made in Mexico is located at 185 Main Street South in Newmarket.

Review- Sawmill Creek Riesling

Sawmill creek riesling

This may be a funny wine review in comparison to most I have written but I tested and drank this bottle of Sawmill Creek “Riesling” over 2 evenings of binge watching episodes of season 4 of The Walking Dead.

If you have watched this series, you know that you watch more than one episode on Netflix per evening and as many as you can handle before bed time.  The episode I saw,  the Governor come back and try to take over the prison. It was a very intense and sad scene of one of the great characters dying in the process.  The wine certainly held up to this. With a light, off dry taste that had a sweetness and hint of honey and ripe peaches, it was a force to be reckoned with.    It tasted so yummy, even with my emotions being erratic during a few scenes.

I would give this wine a score of 89/100 and definitely recommend it for either a night sitting at the fire or during your television binge-watching. If you are looking to have a bottle of wine for dinner, I would think pairing it up with a good chicken, fish or seafood, it would be a hit.
