Awful food. This place should be ashamed to call itself Mexican, because Mexican cuisine is amazing and this is anything but. Guacamole tastes like green mayonnaise and the food is barely edible -- my quesadilla was a tortilla with a slab of grilled cheese in it, nothing else. My friend ordered a vegetarian burrito and it had broccoli and diced carrots in it, but no cheese, no beans, no rice, and tasted more like stir-fried Chinese food than Mexican. Avoid at all costs.

Okay, so we made a bit of an assumption by association, and on a pretty flimsy premise it has to be said. The night prior, we visited Totopa, another Mexican restaurant, and had extraordinarily good tacos. So we we wandered past Txokomex today, we thought that maybe Bilbao is good for all repasts Mexican. How erroneous an assumption that proved to be.

The blokes who served us were pleasant enough, and one of them was kind enough to explain one item on the menu that I'd never heard of.

But then the food came. The nachos was a mess. And I have no idea was the guacamole was, but it sure didn't contain a lot of avocado. The chicken burrito was, according to my mate, mashed up chicken and sauce in a soggy tortilla. And my other mate had the sincronizada. It was actually very tasty, and would have got full marks.... until my mate bit into the bit of gristle. Seriously? You didn't notice it in preparing the meat, in cooking the meat and then when preparing the sincronizada? It was knuckle sized - and there is no excuse.

You want Mexican? Go to Totopo and, sadly, give Txokomex a miss.

Great place for takeaway. Friendly staff, good quality of food.
They also deliver, but the food gets home a bit cold, unfortunately.
