Pepe's Mexican Restaurant @ Milton

Gosh, I have so many food posts pending and sitting on my desktop. /(._.)\

The SO decided we'd have dinner at Pepe's in Milton on Friday.

His excuse was that I had done very well with the household expenses, therefore we were able to clear our credit card line. So the only way to celebrate? Use the credit card! (^_^;)

We've walked past Pepe's several times and each time, it always looked really busy. Which in Brisbane is a very good start to marking an establishment as a decent eats.

It was past 8:30pm when we got there, but despite the late hour, there were no indoor tables available and we were directed to a table outside under the portable heater*, until one freed up.

The menu is fairly standard: nachos, tostadas, enchiladas, chimichangas and burritos. The choices of fillings are generally beef, chicken and beans. So we dug in and waited.

Service was acceptable, with nice polite wait staff, but not very quick. I attribute it to the kitchen though, as there appeared to be only 2 kitchen staff to an almost full restaurant.

As much as the SO liked the beef filling and the food was really decent (presented in more of a homestyle cooking), I found it didn't match up to the Mexican food at Iguanas in Clarke Quay (Singapore). Nevertheless, I wouldn't dismiss it: it is a comfortable eatery, which would appeal to a casual family dinner out.

* With our winter nights hitting 10°C and below, portable heaters should be worshipped.
