QC, you lucky people.
Tucked along Maginhawa street is this new hole-in-the-wall restaurant that offers a simple menu of home-cooked style Mexican favorites.
It opened just last April, Mexican Belly is a 14-seater restaurant by Marty and Monique. Like any other young couple, they enjoy eating out and trying different kinds of food but their favorite is Mexican. Because of this, they decided to open up their own restaurant that specializes in home-cooked tacos, nachos, quesadillas, fajitas, and more.
This laid-back and cozy diner serves some of the most affordable Mexican food in town. All recipes came from Marty’s mom, who personally taught the couple to prepare and cook everything in their menu. You’ll probably see Marty and Monique all the time as they are very hands-on in kitchen and store operations.
Everything that they serve is freshly made everyday and according to Monique, their homemade salsa is a definite must-try! Enough talking and now here’s a sneak peek to some of their most recommended dishes.
Hard corn tortilla filled with lettuce, taco beef and our very own home-made two-way salsa Cocida & Salsa Fresca topped with cheese
