Hubby and I were going to IKEA and we decided to grab dinner before we went shopping. I’m always on the lookout for authentic Mexican food. We decided to try Tu Tierra. There was a lineup, but we were seated in 15 minutes. Service was slow to start, seating etc. seemed disorganized. When we got seated, we were twice given menus and asked for drinks. (Which was ok.) They forgot the salsa for us and table next to us for the chips. I would summarize it as the service being inconsistent.
The food was good. I had the poblano combo. The plate came out super hot, so you know it just came out of the kitchen. The chicken was tender and the mole sauce was tasty. My only concern was that the bottom of the taco was soggy from sitting in the sauce. I enjoyed the spicy salsa and chips that were served as the appetizer. Hubby had the alambre con queso. He thought it tasted pretty good as well, but the next day woke up feeling unwell with nausea. We suspected it could have been due to his dinner the night before. The food was perhaps a bit oversalted as I found myself drinking a lot of water in the hours following.
This would be the second time that I’ve visited Coyotes. Their food is really good. We got into Banff late and I was looking for lighter dinner options. I started with the sweet potato and corn chowder. It reminded me of butternut squash soup. I like the way it was served; with the sauce in a pattern. Hubby had the Southwest smoked salmon sushi roll. I ordered an appetizer for my main, the oven baked quesadilla. It was delicious. Hubby had the grilled AAA Alberta beef tenderloin. He enjoyed his dish, but thought they were a little heavy handed with the bearnaise sauce. I really like their food; it tastes fresh and healthy.
The only downside was that we’re pretty sure the diners a table away from us had body odour problems. It became apparent, the change in the air quality when they left. Fortunately, the nice aromas from our meals masked it.
