Last week we went for Italian.. This week Mexican! We got there for dinner and by looking at the menu, prices aren’t bad at all. Really affordable I must say. The place is small decorated with their national flag colours and several pinata hanging on the ceiling, and Mexico music blasting. We started to order, we went for the Chili Con Carne, so far the best that I have tasted and it is spicy. Chicken Tortilla Soup, I love this it is just perfect but a little salty. The tomato based, shredded chicken, Mexican spices, fried tortilla strips and mmm.. mozzarella cheese melted with the soup. Just nice, only salty. Sour Cream Enchiladas came with rice and corn tortilla filled with shredded chicken. The sour cream is nice but the filling again.. salty. Fajita Platter Combo, just like any fajita, served with sides of guacamole, sour cream, tortilla and cheese. Again salty.. Might want to mention to go easy on that.
The drawbacks, apart from most of the dishes are salty, most of the item that we wanted to order that day was unavailable. It was early Friday Evening. The funny thing here is when we wanted to pay after our meal, Rita paid with her American Express, cause it is recently that they accepted it. I looked at the server and they came back faster than usual advice for a different card. We wonder why. Rita called Amex to check if there is any decline at Frontera, while I presented my Amex card and it got approved. It was advice that the Amex customer service, that the transaction wasn’t even perform. While eyeing at the bar, they kindda have a discussion to accept it anyway and they came back with the receipt. What was that about? Were they resisting to except American Express because of the merchant fees? Well, I don’t think that it is their option to decide which card we can use at the establishment. Not only this happen here, but at several other occations. They prefer to resist each time we present American Express.
