Cielo Blanco, Trinity Leeds

21 Feb 2014
My friend Georgie was dying to visit the Mexican Cielo Blanco in Trinity Leeds for her birthday, so we all hopped into a taxi and away we went to what is my new, favourite, Mexican restaurant.

 As it was a special occasion, cocktails were essential to start off the night, and they definitely did not disappoint. I ordered a Strawberry Daquiri as a treat, seeing as I haven't had one since the summer! It was deliciously refreshing, and I love how substantial it was in size as well! Other wonderful concoctions ordered included a Strawberry Kiwi Margarita, a Pink Grapefuit and Pineapple Magarita, and a Classic for the birthday girl herself!

Extra brownie points are scored for the decoration of the place; everything was presented in such a vibrant and colourful way that it made the food look even more enticing! We also ordered a little snack of tortilla chips (which were warm and therefore especially tasty), with dips including guacamole, chive sour cream, and an incredible array of salsas.

We then ventured into the main restaurant, where we examined the menus for a ridiculously long time before we finally decided on our dishes. We ordered two of the Mexican Street Food plates each, including Tiger Prawn Toastados, Butternut Squash & Black Bean Chilli Tacos, and Rump Steak, Grilled Cheese & Jalapeno Ketchup Toastados. All twelve of our dishes arrived promptly, and before we knew it there was a feast in front of us.

Chicken will always be my one true love, so I went for the incredible Chicken Tinga and Smoked Tomato Salsa Quesadillas, which were just the right amount of hotness for me. I also shared some Chicken Empanadas with Beth and they were quite possibly my favourite of the lot. Corn dough, deep fried? Yes please.

I'm obsessed with pulled pork right now, and anything with pineapple is always a hit with me, so I also ordered the Pulled Pork and Grilled Pineapple Tacos which were to die for.

I think aside from the brilliant music and the wonderful atmosphere, one of the best things about Cielo Blanco is the way in which you can try so many plates so easily. The girls and I loved the fact that we could share our little delights, and weren't restricted to just one! This proved very useful when four pulled pork tacos were just too much for me in terms of spice (I'm a total wimp when it comes to that), so I swapped one for another chicken quesadilla!

The service was also brilliant, and my only regret is not ordering Churros for dessert. I will definitely be visiting again to try out more of their amazing street foods, and maybe an Enchillada or a Burrito or two!
