What a Treat

Meeting up with good friends is always a treat!

We met up at Ristras in BGC to celebrate MHM’s birthday

Hubby and i visited Ristras a couple of weeks ago but we did not have our camera at that time so i was thrilled that we were back with our lenses

Ristras serves Mexican fast food, just like Chipotle. The term ristras mean an arrangement of drying chili peppers, used to preserve them and at times used as decors, exactly like those hung on the restaurant’s wall.

When you enter the restaurant, you’re offered a spread of tasty filling

you choose which of them you want to make you’re own custom Mexican dishes

To order, choose your rice then your meat, that would be steak for us…

then add a little of this and that…

cover with cheese then torch…yuuummm…

then start again…

On our table:

Wet Steak Burrito

delicious creamy burrito!

cilantro rice, tender steak, veggies and a lot of cheese…yuuummmy!!!

Chicken Quesadilla

Melted cheese with chicken enclosed in warm tortilla

delicious with Ristras garlic and chili sauce

a must try if you’re looking for a light meal and don’t want the heavy rice

Dry Chimichanga

I loved the crispy fried tortilla with its delicious filling. We chose chorizo rice, steak and…well, practically everything else.

All the dishes were definitely delicious so if you’re up for some good Mexican food, you definitely must try Ristras!

  2. I love the concept of choosing what you want in your burritos, tacos, and chimichangas. It’s a refreshing change from all the pre-assembled things I encounter at most Mexican restaurants.

  4. Hi Doc, not at all spicy. They give you chili sauce in case you want to spice up your dish.

    Midge, you’re so right!

    Dyanie, i love their quesadilla too! Sooooo good!

  5. […] simple but quality ingredients. If you’re looking for huge proportions, i would recommend Ristras with good dishes you will probably not be able to finish alone. But if you’re in the area, […]
