It was time for another girly catch up with Els (Eileen) and Pei Pei (Chris). Gosh I love calling Chris by her Chinese name ehehe. Els made a booking for Flying Fajita Sistas. I must admit I don’t go to Glebe a lot. To be honest I was really surprised at the number of cool looking restaurants there. I can’t wait to go back and try the others.
Flying Fajita Sistas is known for their Mexican fair. The prices are reasonable and the servings are quite big. The girls and I always tend to over order. Our waitress suggested sharing a few dishes and guaranteed that we would leave with a full stomach.
We start of with the mixed platter. The platter comes with 6 different dips of guacamole, salsa, crema, pepian, queso fundido and frijoles. It is accompanied by some handmade totopas $23.90. My favourite out of the 6 was the frijoles. The dip was cheesy and it had the flavour of chilli without too much of the heat.
We also ordered the chorizo and potato balls with the mole rojo sauce as an entree. The potato balls were crisp on the outside and really soft on the inside. I liked the mole rojo sauce better than the balls. The chorizo was scarce and it wasn’t really a winner for me.
You can’t go to a Mexican restaurant without ordering a Margarita. Since I was driving that night I ordered myself a Virgin Strawberry Rita $13.50. This was a sour combination of flavours but very refreshing. The sugar on the rim added that sweetness that made this drink perfect. I will trying the alcoholic version next time.
Taquitos (Little Rolled Tacos) was another entree that we tried. These are two yellow corn tortillas, fried until crisp and topped with a choice of chicken or pulled pork. We chose the chicken $14.90. This was served with the mole rojo sauce. I just can’t get enough of that sauce.
For our main we shared the Flying Fajitas with the steak. The steak is marinated in chipotle chilli and spices. They char-grill the steak to give it a smokey flavour. It is well seasoned and after some really delicious dips, it was enough for the girls and I.
The steak and tortillas are served with sides which include salad, cheese, guacamole, crema, salsa, olives, jalapenos, pineapple, frijoles and some Mexican rice $24.90.
