(Porkbelly) We were invited to try out the newly opened Besito Mexican Restaurant opened up in Chestnut Hill mall. The restaurant has a very authentic feeling, upon arrival the staff greets you in Spanish.
The restaurant is large and bustling with a great energy.
Very interesting Decor
We were promptly seated and presented with the menu. Besito has a very expansive menu.
While waiting for our food, we chowed down on some chips. It’s easy to go overboard with chips.
Watermelon Margarita and Besito Patron Margarita
Served with warm tortilla chips and salsa de
tomate y jalapeño
Our 1st appetizer
Basically Guacamole made tableside, it is damn good. I definitely recommend this. I could eat this all day
Baked queso Chihuahua, rajas, chorizo, cilantro, white onion.
Cheesy warm and hits the spot, especially on the extremely cold day we visited.
That cheese action + Carne Asada Tacos
Tacos de Carne Asada*
Grilled marinated skirt steak, organic romaine
lettuce, pico de gallo, chile de arbol salsa, queso
Panquesito de Jaiba
Crispy jumbo lump crab cake, roasted habanero
cream sauce, roasted corn salad, cilantro,
Filete de Res al Chipotle*
Filet Mignon marinated in Negra Modelo, chipotle quemado salsa, queso Chihuahua,
nopales, plantains, queso fresco
Very tender, cooked perfect, everything on this dish went well.
It came with Beans and rice and cheese.
For my side I ordered
Elotes de la Calle
Roasted Mexican street corn, queso fresco, chile molido
Bunny is a big corn fan. The combo of sweet and savory is what makes this dish
Jumbo shrimp and organic crimini and button mushrooms cooked in a garlic chile
salsa, mashed boniato, pico de gallo
This reminded us a lot of Mofongo in Puerto Rico. Shrimp with a starch base, the shrimp was perfect.
At this point we were pretty stuffed. But there is still dessert, the show must go on….
My beautiful wife
You put them under your pillow and it is supposed to ward off bad spirits.
Overall Besito Mexican is a very welcomed addition to the Chestnut hill area. It serves delicious Mexican food that is fairly priced with a large diversified menu. The restaurant seems like it is doing very well. There was a decent line forming behind the Hostess. I can recommend this restaurant.
