Ahh a very delayed post from me! I was super excited for Rostizado to open and checked it out on the day of their first lunch service, last month. Well.. Edmonton needs a lot more restaurants like Rostizado! Owned by the same owners as Tres Carnales. the concept of Rostizado is authentic modern Mexican dining. The interior of the restaurant itself is beautiful and artistic, with fresh smells of Mexican food in the air and a lively environment.
The open kitchen gives diners the opportunity to watch the food being made!
My friend and I both ordered a rosti-pollo cemita ($16). A cemita is a sandwich that is a very popular Mexican street food. At Rostizado, the cemita uses a fresh sesame seed baked bun filled with shredded roasted chicken, salsa, and pulled cheese. There was a good amount of the chicken, which was tender and flavorful. The cemita was accompanied with roasted potatoes that came with a mild spicy salsa. The potatoes completed the cemita by adding a saltier taste to the meal!
The number one rule is to always leave room for dessert! We decided to try both of the desserts they had to offer, and we knew we had made the right choice.
The Flan de Queso ($7) can be described as a Mexican creme brulee. The custard was rich and creamy, drenched in a caramel sauce and topped with some sweet pecans.
Churros are becoming quite popular in town nowadays! If you're not sure what churros are, they're strips of fried Mexican dough covered in sugar and cinammon. You will love them if you have a sweet tooth (like me). The dulce de leche sauce that it was served with the perfect pairing!
Rostizado is a must-try so get there fast because they don't take reservations!
