Iguana’s Authentic Mexican Food

Our two days in Baguio were over and we decided to have one last meal together in Pampanga. We were supposed to eat at C’ Italian Dining but my friend Jenny raved about the Mexican food at Iguana’s so that where we had our late, late lunch.

I took this picture while the front door was open. It was very dark inside. Ambiance?

I read that their lemon margarita was a must order so I ordered one. It was frozen and generous but it hardly tasted like lemon and there wasn’t much tequila. It was a good drink if you’re feeling hot.

My favorite Mexican food ever are nachos and I always order that and it gives me a benchmark for the restaurant’s food. Imagine my disappointment when Iguana’s nachos was made up of store bought microwaved cheese sauce with store bought tortilla chips simply topped with slices of black olives and jalapeño. They should have just called it chips and dip.

We had to order an extra bowl of chili to eat with the nachos to make it more palatable.

We ordered the quesadilla in chicken and beef since those were the only two options. They were really good and my favorite at Iguana’s.

Just look at the generous quantity of well seasoned chicken and plenty of cheese.

The soup came with the combination platter. The bean soup was an acquired taste.

We ordered both platters in both chicken and beef too. The burrito and enchilada contained the same filling as in the quesadilla but with an addition of other ‘stuff’ I still prefer the simpler and tastier quesadilla.

My other friends liked the soft and crunchy shell (no picture) tacos. The chili was hearty and mildly spiced.
