Cha Cha Cha @ Holland Village

10 JUN 2009

After my initial visit to Cha Cha Cha with Dave, I know I have to bring wifey her for the chips, the salsa, and the fajitas…. I know wifey is really craving for some of the simple things we could get in Australia which actually include cheap snack food like corn chips and salsa sauce that are so readily available  in Australia’s supermarket.

Cha Cha Cha is probably styled very much like a simple rugged Mexican restaurant. Nothing extravagant, dimly lit, high ceiling, wobbly table (at least the one holding our food), over-worked air-con that’s not really functioning that well anymore… Basically, not much ambience to speak of… I can imagine getting stuffy in here on a hot day…

Soon after I placed our orders: Nachos ($11.50), Prawn Fajitas ($26.00), Corona ($10.00), and Hoegaarden ($11.00), we were served a basket of Corn Chips with Salsa that was complimentary. The chips were served slightly warm, with a nice crisp crunch to it. The salsa sauce was pretty decent and it packed a spicy punch. A very nice start to the meal!

Our order of Nachos came next… Oooo the huge plate of tortilla chips toppled with diced tomatoes, jelepenos and lots of melted cheese… Simply heavenly. It was quite a large serving, and I reckon, as an appetizer,  its adequate for 3 to 4 people to share without being overwhelmed…

It took awhile before the Prawn Fajitas was served. I had a sneaking suspicion that they mixed up our orders and had to redo our Prawn Fajitas when they served us someone else’s Burritos instead…

Soon enough, the familiar condiments served with the fajitas was delivered on a plate… Half a plate filled with freshly chopped vegetables, diced mixed salad (onions and tomatoes), sour cream and guacamole…

Finally, the Prawn Fajitas was served, sizzling on a hotplate! There were at least 7 large prawns and a lot of onions and jalapenos… definitely big enough to share between two small eaters like us.  Served with 3 flour tortillas, we conjured up our wrapped fajitas with the sour cream, guacamole and mixed vegetables like a Mexican po-piah… The Prawn Fajitas was really delicious. As we were sharing, we ordered a few more of the flour tortillas which cost $0.50 each.

All in, the meal came up to $70.62 (with the 2 bottles of beer jacking up the price)… The dinner at Cha Cha Cha was actually pretty good… However, there is definitely room for improvement in the overall service there, and to me, the ambience is a total let down. Not sure if I will be back as I believe there are many other Mexican restaurant out there to feed wifey’s craving when it hits…
