Pepe's Mexican @ Newmarket

Pepe's Mexican Restaurant on Urbanspoon
After a beery Saturday it seemed appropriate to have a nice hearty but late breakfast and Pepe's at Newmarket is just the ticket!

This is our second visit here for breakfast and the food again did not dissapoint!

El Ranchero Grande
After all of our group arrived we ordered some drinks and enjoyed some conversation before ordering our meals. Half of our group went with the El Ranchero Grande which is an epic breakfast with a burrito bowl filled with chilli topped with 2 eggs with a moat of maple bacon, choirzo, stuffed mushrooms and a delicious hash brown.

In both my visits I have had the same meal so can't pass judgement on the rest of the menu but the Grande is extremely delicious, well sized and well priced for what you get. That said the rest of my group seemed to enjoy their meals equally.

All the drinks on offer are also very good with a good range of mexican beers, sangria, margaritas, coffee and juice. I enjoyed a mug of coffee and a glass of cold pressed apple juice which was tasty!

It was a fairly quiet Sunday morning however the food took way too long to come out arriving over an hour after ordering. This may have partly been due to them running out of salmon mid service but still they were not overly busy so it shouldn't really have taken this long.

Another problem is that the menu online and the menu in the restaurant differ, so some of what you see online is not available which can lead to dissapointment.

The food is really what shines at Pepe's and if they can improve the service and continuity of the menus their popularity will grow. I am looking forward to returning to try the lunch menu sometime in the future.
