Mole Taco Bar at Cocochan
TUESDAYS & WEDNESDAYS
AT COCOCHAN, JAMES STREET
WE’RE BACK! MOLE TACO BAR WILL BE POPPING UP IN THE FABULOUS BASEMENT BAR OF COCOCHAN RESTAURANT BASED IN ST CHRISTOPHER’S PLACE - A SHORT WALK FROM OUR OLD PICTON PLACE VENUE.
Store bought nachos - all I have to say! Tacos were ok, everything else was bad, service was too fussy. Don't go. El Pastor does great tacos if you want them, and even Wahaca is better.
A friend recommended Mole Taco and I was very much looking forward to fresh authentic food.
Unfortunately I left quite disappointed. The portions are very small but very expensive.
We had the guacamole with tortilla chips for starter - guacamole was very chunky, lacked a bit of lime and salt. Tortilla chips were from a bag and not fresh (for £9 I’d expect more)
Had beef, fish and prawn tacos - the sweet potato was soggy , the sauce with prawns was bitter, again very small bites, didn’t seem freshly prepared as everything was like warm at best.
Service and Ambiente - when eating Mexican I don’t want to be told “bon appetite” as it just doesn’t fit the food. The place isn’t as cozy as other restaurants I’ve been too, clean but nothing memorable really.
