Mexican Monday at JD Wetherspoons (1/5)


I like Wetherspoon Pubs generally.  They have an amazing range of real ales and often the place is clean and normally quite comfy.  Yes they might be a homogenized brand, but they do it well.

Unfortunately the food can be a little hit and miss.  Frequently I go and have the burger n beer offer which is normally a delightful alternative from McDeath but tonight I was feeling adventerous and as it was their Mexican Monday I felt a little deviation from the norm was needed.

Mexican isn’t a hard type of dish to serve up, its not hard to get it wrong either but it seems that this is just what Spoons managed to do.  Well with the Nachos (my able assistant’s Burrito didn’t look half bad…)

I present to you, a pile of Nachos with a spoonful of BBQ Pulled Pork, a spoonful of Guacamole and some tinned salsa.  Thanks Wetherspoons…

Its not that I get some silent kick about critcising a chain, but I just had hopes and dreams.  Hopes of cheese that had been melted, hopes of lashings of salsa and guacamole.  Expectations that the whole thing wouldn’t be so, well, dry…

I managed to work out that only a third of the Nachos had melted cheese attached to it but most of it managed to have a horrid bitter tinned salsa sticking to the whole thing.

I’m sticking to the burgers in future…
