After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender baby disk with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Mexican fare at Three Amigos, located in south Edmonton.
Three Amigos adorns its cheerful tables with hearty Oaxacan specialties, slapping a grin on any healthy appetite that wanders into its boldly hued web. Spark an appetizing discussion about the anatomy of decapod politics over a plate of cocktel de camarones, a fresh dose of shrimp tossed in a specialty tomato juice and accented with cilantro, onions, and avocado ($7.99). The Cubana torta boasts a blend of ham, shredded chicken, and carne enchilada on a bun topped with veggies, cheese, refried beans, and mayo ($10.99). Scarf down a serving of pork, steak, or chicken tacos ($12.99) or devour the bistec borracho, a platter of chopped steak marinated in Corona and sautéed with green pepper, onion, mushroom, and tomato while three handmade tortillas perform clap hops at its side ($14.99). End the feast with deep-fried ice cream ($4.99), or sip one of Three Amigos' many tequilas before journaling about the evening on a Magna Doodle.
- The food at the 3 Amigos is delicious. Everything that we had was tasty (including the guacamole, enchiladas, empanadas and the monte crusto). The establishment is decorated in a Mexican theme, yet it is simple and clean. Our server was attentive and very friendly. – Al Pal, Urbanspoon
- If you are looking for that elusive place that has true flavor of Mexico look no further. – Dr. Eats, Edmonton Eats
Natives of Huajuapan de León, the Rosales brothers transported recipes from their Oaxacan village to build a menu for Three Amigos that encompasses spicy, sweet, and savoury flavours. Seabreeze shrimp tacos arrive stuffed with tender seafood; nine specialty entrees boast proteins such as Corona-marinated steak. Patrons can cleanse palates with a variety of beverages, including Mexican sodas, cocktails mixed from one of 50 tequilas, or "old-school" milkshakes that shoulder a boom box upon their lids. Up to 60 patrons congregate in the dining room, where televisions buzz with soccer, hockey, basketball, and football games.
