Queso Fundido at The Mexican versus Telus Garden

The Mexican Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato My first experience of queso fundido was at Telus Garden, where I really thought they did a great job of it. I spotted the dish again tonight at The Mexican Antojitos Y Cantina, where you have two options: with chorizo (the traditional way) or mushrooms (the veggie option; doesn't cost any less).

Queso Fundido ($11) Flame-melted cheese mixed with your choice of mushroom or homemade chorizo, corn tortillas and pico de gallo.
  • It's an appetizer so portion is smallish.
  • Salty cheese. And only three (?) tacos so be generous with the cheese.
  • Cools quite quickly but doesn't harden for a while. Still, it's not tasty when it's not hot so don't dilly dally!
  • Definitely use the salsa (pico de gallo) provided as it helps to offset the heaviness that comes with basically eating a whole lot of cheese.

Overall it's pretty tasty in a salty-tasty sort of way, and if you like stringy cheese it's fun. BUT -- and I can't believe I'm saying this because I'm not Glowbal Group's biggest fan -- BUT if you like queso fundido, go to Telus Garden. For just $4 more, they do an honestly fantastic job in comparison. Here's why (aside from being in a way fancier atmosphere):
  • Comes in a searing hot stone bowl that literally sizzles the cheese inside. This keeps it hot and soft for a long time.
  • More stringy cheese fun.
  • Cheese is seared brown where it touches the bowl, and if you're like me, you find that pretty darn tasty.

  • Only $4.50 but also not that tasty to be honest.
