Food Trip - On the Border Mexican Grill & Cantina

We have officially stopped cooking rice because T sold our rice cooker, LOL! Seriously, we sold the cooker because we will be moving somewhere; thus, whatever appliances we have that we deem too bulky for courier are for sale.

As a result, we are slowly emptying out our fridge and I'm planning on concocting a dish or something edible from whatever remaining food or ingredient.

That Sunday left us with nothing to eat so after taking photos of the autumn foliage in the nearby park, we went to Pyeongchon-Lotte for dinner. I was craving for Samgyeopsal but T said that the smoke from the grill might not be good for Amber. So we went On the Border!

Along with TGIF and a Korean restaurant (beside On the Border), the 8th floor is shared with Lotte Cinemas.

Walls decked with art pieces.

The lovely interior. On the left of this photo is a chandelier made of Corona and other beer bottles. It makes for a good conversation piece on awkward moments.

While waiting for our meals, they provided us with something to munch so as to keep us busy.  These tortillas are unsalted and crunchy.

Raspberry Margarita (without alcohol). Notice the two straws? It is standard practice here in Korea to put two straws if a person ordered only one drink. They assume it will be shared with someone even if T ordered iced tea while I had the margarita. This tasted good that I offered T to drink some, putting the yellow straw to use.

The Big Burdorrito (Fajita Chicken)

Stuffed with fajita steak or chicken, Mexican rice, black beans, cheese, caramelized onions and sour cream sauce. Served with a side salad.

It was seriously big. I only ate half of the half burrito. It was delicious but the serving was too huge for one. We didn't expect all servings to be huge!

Border Chimichanga

Hand rolled, fried golden brown and topped with ranchero sauce and mixed cheese. Served with Mexican rice and choice of beans.

Fajita Combination

All fajitas are served straight off the grill, sizzling with choice of refried or black beans, Mexican rice,  fresh torillas,  sour cream, pico de gallo,  and choice of cheese or guacamole.

We consumed all the fajitas except for anything in the second photo. T requested them to have it packed as take-out. 

Price ranges from 20,000KRW to 30,000KRW for each. Reasonable considering the servings are huge that one meal can be shared by two persons.
