After trying out Fonda Mexican (Richmond Outlet), it is now one of my favourite places to dine at when I crave for something Mexican. There are other two Fonda outlets in town, one strategically situated on Flinders Lane, the other at a fast developing suburb, Prahran.

Charred Corn Antojito, 4.50AUD

Jan and I started out with Charred Corn Antojito, probably 2/5 the size of a normal corn on the cob. The topping was grated ricotta salata cheese with a mild taste of chipotle aioli. Not the juiciest corn, nor were we wowed by it. Jan said the Charred Corn at Mamasita was way tastier. This starter dish was our least favourite of the night.

Fish Taco, 7AUD

We chose a soft taco shell paired with lightly battered fish meat with chipotle aioli spread underneath. It was an expensive taco but it sure tasted good.

Grilled Chicken Ensalada, 15AUD

Ensaladas are Spanish salads. The waitress recommended the grilled chicken, which we ordered. Its mixed together with quinoa, black beans, coriander, fresh corn, sweet potato, mint, peas and lemon vinaigrette dressing. Jan does not usually like salad, but this he love. I believe there was more than too many black beans hidden within. The grilled chicken was ample and so was the sweet potato.

Chopped Beef Burrito, 15AUD

One of the best burritos I have in a while. Why? Its not white rice or even brown rice was used for the carb filling, its quinoa so it makes it less sinful (even though I am aware we’re still eating that tortilla, but still…). Other than the chopped beef slices, there is more black beans, some salsa roja and cabbages mixed with chipotle aioli.

At Fonda Mexican, you need to take orders at the counter and pay right ahead. The food would be sent to you afterwards. Service was really quick as well and we had a good chat with the owner of the place. It was crowded already at half past six. By the time we left, the place was swarming and queues reach up all the way to the front of the store. If you are looking for a healthier Mexican food option, Fonda Mexican is now a place that I would always visit to fix my Mexican food craving.
