Canadian Patrick Coulter and his Taiwanese wife Anita Chiu have given their popular Bystro restaurant a new name and all-new Mexican menu, focused on authentic Mexican cuisine (versus Tex-Mex fare) made with fresh ingredients, paired with house-made corn tortillas. --By Douglas Habecker, translated by Sho Huang
A. Unique, and uniquely-good, Mexican dishes include the Taco Trio (NT$200-220) with three tortillas and seven filling choices--such as Chicken Tinga, Carnitas braised/simmered pork, Chorizo sausage, and Baja Fish--plus a choice from five salsa types. The Tortas (NT$200-220) sourdough bun sandwiches have the same filling/salsa choices, plus guacamole, refried bean and feta cheese. Among a variety of margaritas (NT$220-350), the pictured spicy Mamasita is made with fresh grapefruit, chilli powder, Cointreau and Mezcal.
B. A gesture to Tex-Mex cuisine are the three popular grilled NT$450 Fajitas options (pictured: Sirloin Steak) served with a savory Mexican-style rice, beans, sour cream, guacamole, and Pico De Gallo.
C. Anita's Cantina also has a spruced-up interior with attractive fresh colors and new tables and seating.
