MexiGo for the Authentic Taste of Mexico

The other day, I was sitting in the canteen at work when one of my Mexican colleagues walked in with some Chicken Tamales (a traditional dish made of starchy dough (usually corn-based) which is steam or boiled using a leaf wrapper and can be filled with a multitude of different items (chicken, corn, cheese, chillies, etc)).

I asked him if he had made it, and he said that he had found a local Mexican store called MexiGo that sold them… and for a Mexican to be this happy with the Mexican products made in another country (on another continent), I knew that it was going to be something good.

And the stars were definitely on my side – because the next day, I found out that Mr Draper’s birthday party was going to be serving Mexican food… from MexiGO!! what were the chances!

Mr Draper ordered a whole range of goodies! (Keeping in mind that orders need to be in by a Wednesday for a free Friday/Saturday delivery).

Guacamole and Torilla chips... YUM

Tringas (their own unique blend of chicken breast marinated in a special sauce and then placed inside a flour tortilla with cheese 6€). Each portion comes with 3 Tringas and one portion of chipotle sauce.

for those who are not aware… Tomatillo Sauce  is a traditional Mexican recipe whereby green tomatillo (related to the cape gooseberry) is mixed with peppers and spices and Pico De Gallo sauce is a fresh uncooked mixture made from tomato, white onion and chilli and normally has a bit of lime juice and fresh coriander added as well (what we would call a salsa)

  1. We LOVE Mexigo! It’s conveniently close to Andrew’s MBA classes so I make him stock up on Saturdays 🙂 Their stuff freezes well too so it’s nice to have something tasty in the freezer for those nights when there’s not time (or desire) to cook. Glad you found them!
