Those of us who love Mexican food — genuine Mexican food — are often disappointed when trying to locate good Mexican restaurants and eateries.
Much that passes for Mexican food, or — in a pinch — even Tex-Mex, simply bears no resemblance to the real thing.
Therefore it is always a real pleasure to find a place where Mexican food is done right.
Mexicanito — a very small restaurant in Blanes’ popular downtown shopping district — is such a place.
Step inside and you wonder how the owners were able to get six or seven tables into the small room, which once served as a small apartment.
But look at the happy faces of their customers, and you know you’re on to something.
This restaurant — popular with locals and tourists alike — has a full range of Mexican dishes. Service is friendly and efficient, and the prices are decent.
The proprietor of Mexicanito hails from Spain, but has sharpened his cooking skills on location in Mexico.
Not surprisingly, it pays to make reservations.
