The laminated menu card with photographs of some of the dishes is a little twee but then so is the shrine of beer bottles en route to the bathrooms. It's all a bit kitschy tongue in cheeky. I'm less fussed about dodgy decor as long as the tacos are terrific.
Service is pretty friendly and prompt and we get ticking away on our order sheet putting in our individual requests for tostadas, tacos, quesadillas and volcanes as well as shared dishes. Arriba arriba we urge as tummies need to be filled!
I enjoyed the prawn ceviche tostada which does pack a punch of chilli heat and also the beef taco. The tuna quesadilla is like a slightly more gourmet tuna and cheese toastie and the volcanes are heavier and greasier than the other offerings with the addition of melted cheese.
There's something for everyone at Hotel Jesus. It's casual, it's cheery and it comes with fresh flavours and plenty of spice. Pretty pleasing really.
