el racó - The Reykjavik Grapevine

el racó

Published June 10, 2005

El Racó is a new Mexican place by Tryggvagata, where there used to be a … Mexican place. Unfortunately my knowledge of Mexican food is quite limited, and so when I actually complained to the chef that my fajitas were not spicy at all he explained to me that fajitas were not supposed to be spicy. Which has since been verified. And means that probably what I had were excellent fajitas – in any case the chicken meat was great, the vegetables fresh and the portions generous.
Not only did the dessert, a chocolate cake with cream, come quite close to the sublime, the slice was huge as well. Which made perfectly up for rather sour coffee.
The ideal place for what? Casual dinners and lunches with colleagues, family or friends, given that no drama or sense of fate is involved. Or if you want to break up with someone but make it seem like not that a big deal – the pastel colours soothe every soul.
