Fonda Mexican

Richmond's famous Mexican
Fonda Mexican in Richmond serves fresh Mexican favourites with some semblance of authenticity. They have an extensive drinks menu, but it's their food which is talked about by those who know the area.

I grabbed a taco for a quick snack, with some chips to share.

The taco was steeply priced at $6, for such a small dish. It took a while for it to come out, and there was some confusion with my table's order. Despite that hiccup, the bite-sized snack was worth the wait, with an interesting tangy taste.

The chips were nothing special. I was expecting something more exciting for their $6.50 price tag. They were lightly seasoned and salted, and reasonably crunchy; however, it was a mistake to order a bowl of chips when there are so many exciting Mexican options on the menu.

There are no bookings, and it's quite a popular place, so you may have to fight to get a table. You go up to the counter to order and pay, which can be a long wait at peak times.
