I went here with my mother yesterday for a snack to fill the empty pit that was my stomach. We shared the vegetarian nachos and I must say they were really good. The house sauce was yummy and the use of green olives was a nice touch.

My husband and I tried the Milagro grill about a year ago, not long after it first opened. At that time, we honestly were not terribly impressed. The drinks were fine, but the service was a bit spotty and the veggie quesadilla we ordered to share was basically just tortillas and cheese with a tiny bit of vegetables.

However, we gave them another chance tonight, sneaking in a quick bite after the Sens game. We both ordered mole enchiladas (his chicken, mine cheese) and large lime margaritas. Both dishes were delicious, and we both admit they do a decent lime margarita here. Service was also better than the last time we'd been in; more prompt and friendly without hovering.

We'll likely go again sometime.

I really liked Milagro for the food,environment and service. Their Mole Enchiladas, Tamales and their combination platters are delicious! I also love their mix drinks and deep fried ice cream.

Went with a friend Wednesday night.

I love Westboro. What a great location.

Inside the restaurant was a mellow, casual atmosphere, light soft rock. Cute, courteous, fun service.

We shared a carafe of Sangria. It was a little on the strong side, which is fine by me. Started with the free chips and pico de gallo. Good stuff!

Shared crabcakes for an appie. I've never had them before but C has and said she's used to them a bit less mushy and more meaty. I thought they were tasty, and will try them elsewhere to develop a point of reference. The were served on fresh greens, with a side of clear pineapple sauce which we are not sure was a compliment or a contrast. We agreed something dilly, or lemony might have been better.

C had Enchiladas with Mole Sauce. She said they were great, and I tried the sauce - chocolaty, but not..Very interesting flavour indeed, not what you would expect. A hint of cinnamon too. Very very nice.

I had the Combo Plate: 1 Chicken Tostada which is basically an open faced tortilla with meat and salad piled on top. If it wasn't for the fantastic pulled roast chicked (also found in their other dishes, and cute server-guy said they use only fresh roast chickens), it would have been unmentionable. 1 Beef Taco - Wow! This was certainly very far from the franchisey tacos I've had at places like Mexis and Lonestar. Very unique flavour in the beef, dare I say "authentic"? 1 Bean/Cheese Burrito - which I only had one bite of (full) and roomie finished it off when I brought it home - he said it was awesome.

Milagro Special Coffee for dessert, very nice.

Overall a great experience. We are definitely going back. Next time to sit on the pub side and watch a game.

Why go to a cookie cutter place like Mexis when you can get this kind of atmosphere in a great neighbourhood, with awesome food and service? The prices are comparable as well. Impressive.

Tried the Mole Enchilada's (Chix and Beef) a while back. They were so good I still remember them. Tasted quite like the ones at Pancho Villa Pancho Villa. There is a connection with these two vendors... owned by brothers maybe ?

Yeah, what I had tasted and looked like an over sour margarita with a few mint leaves floating around in it. It didn't look or taste ANYTHING like a Mojito.

Hm. Sounds like a step up, albeit a short one, from the limeade I got a few years ago there... some things change, just not for the better.

chopper,

Not sure what they served you but FWIW, here's a more traditional set of recipes:

Mojitosí one at a time:

1/2 to 2 tsp sugar (depending on taste)
1 large sprig Mojito mint
1 oz white rum
1 oz lime juice
ice
soda water

Pour sugar in glass and add mint, pound with a flat instrument to crush the mint into the sugar thus releasing the oils. Add ice, rum, and lime juice, fill with soda water, and stir.

Mojito base for more than one at a time:

1 cup sugar
1 cup fresh lime juice
a bunch of mojito mint
1 bottle (750 ml) 3-year-old rum

Beat the sugar, lime juice and Mojito mint with the stems until you get a greenish liquid and the mint is completely chopped. Add the rum and beat for one more minute. This can be kept in the fridge for a month.

To prepare the mojito, fill a tall glass 1/4 full with the base liquid, add 3 ice cubes and then fill the glass with sparkling water. Add a sprig of mint, stir and serve.

Chopper... Sounds like lime bar mix was used. It's usually used in margaritas and gives a drink a light green color. Really on the sour side as well.

I know a server there at Milagro and I'll ask him what's used next time I see him.

Like a good caiparinha (sp), the mulling of the limes (and mint leaves in a mojito) is important to release volatile oils that are quite flavourable.

Sadly I must make a bad review for this. I was thinking that I would get a great Mojito at Milagro's sadly I was mistaken. I couldn't even finish it. i was watching the bartender make the drink. The place was so busy that we decided to eat at the bar instead of waiting for a table. A mojito as far as i know is supposed to be mint, sugar and lime wedges muddled in the bottom of the glass, some rum, lots of ice and topped with soda. The mojito that I enjoy has about an equal flavour of mint, rum, sugar and lime. What I saw the bartender do is pour a green mixture, mint and rum into a shaker and poured it in a glass with ice. What I got was a green coloured drink (usually a mojito is pretty much clear, mostly white rum and soda from my experience...) that was undrinkably sour. It tasted like I was sucking on a lime wedge. So i imagine the mixture was highly concentrated lime juice with some sugar. i had so much confidence that they would make me a great mojito that I had ordered a large. I really should have returned it but I just wasn't in the mood to have a conflict with the bartender who was going to be our server for the rest of the meal and standing right in front of us the whole time. It wasn't just that the drink tasted nothing like a Mojito, that I could handle. It was the second issue that it was simply undrinkable. Much too sour, could not taste anything but lime. I felt my face doing one of those cartoony pukering of the lips to the point of my face caving in!

Had a similar experience with the mojitos at Milagro the last time we were there (see above). Almost a seltzer with a bit of lime, rather than limeade, really.

Sounds like a dud to me, Pete! A good Mojito should have flavours of mint, lime, and rum all in perfect balance. From your description, I take it you tasted only lime. That makes for a pricey glass of limeade! :O

This is a repeat of data from my review of Milagro. My Mojito was 'ok'. There was no taste of alcohol. I have had other 'expertly' prepared drinks where the alcohol 'bite' was very well hidden, but my impression with this Mojito was that there was less 'expert camoflage', and more lack of actual alcohol. I admit that I don't know Mojitos very well, so I will stop short of accusing Milagro of shortchanging me on rum, but if it was a drink I was more familiar with, I would certainly 'point and accuse'. Further, there was no mint flavour to the drink, and I could detect no bruising or abrasion on the mint leaves to indicate they were properly 'abused' to release their oils. (i.e. it looked like they were just tossed into the drink) I am looking forward to hear other people's comments on this.

They have lightly seasoned baby calamari rings fried to perfection, served with jalapeno and roasted garlic aioli. The thing that makes these babies different is that they are rolled in corn flour, giving them a crispy, delicious texture.
