Big Chile Republic – “Fish Tacos”

January 25, 2008

Big Chile Republic has taken over the old Juniors location in Colchester Vermont. The menu is something I’m going to call foodie Mexican fusion.

BCR did a nice job on the interior and the menu / website are nice, almost like they have a designer working for them or are trying to match their hip food.

There are two generous tacos in this order, the fish was some of most perfectly fried fish I’ve had since I was in England. The red rice was nice and moist and had good flavor, the onions and cabbage provided a nice crunch which matched the crunch of the fish. The fresh cilantro was nice visually and taste bud wise. The surprise was the “smoked lemon mayo” it was very light and tasted like the lightest sour cream with a kick of citrus and an indefinable flavor (which must be the smoked). 

Oh yeah, I’ll be back to try some of their other menu items. The tacos were $8.67 with tax, a touch pricey but well worth it for the quality of the food and flavors.
