Pulse Spotlight, August 10/09 – Viva Mexico

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

This FraserValleyPulse.com favourite is situated in the middle of the one-way shopping district in Langley.  It is a great local spot to visit when you’re looking for something fresh, tasty and affordable.

Viva Mexico joined the Langley community in 2005.  Owner Baldo Urtusastegui is not a newby to the restaurant game; he’s owned and operated five Mexican restaurants since 1983. 

The Viva Mexico menu is extensive, offering great dishes such as Nachos Locos, Tacos Originales and the Chimichanga Suprema – all really generous portions.  Their drinks menu is just as big, offering 24 varieties of tequila, a fantastic assortment of margaritas, Mexican beer and tasty mocktails. On the weekend evenings, you’ll find live Mexican musicians rockin’ it. There are a handful of tables on the patio, which are prime seating in the summer as folks enjoy their meals and people watch.  Viva Mexico is open 11:30 AM – late, Tuesday through Sunday. The all-Mexican staff are a fun bunch, who are quick to recommend their favourites or make suggestions of what to try. 

DSC04718Viva Mexico just opened their ice cream parlour next door, which offers 42 different flavours (aye, how to choose??).  A Mexican market is in the works in the space behind the restaurant, look for it in 2010.  Busy, busy – great to see!

While we’d like to keep these for ourselves, we promised Baldo we’d give away a couple of treats to our lovely subscribers :) Please email win@fraservalleypulse.com to be entered to win a Viva Mexico Fiesta Mexicana Platter for 2 OR a gift certificate for 2 entrees! You’ll only need to enter once to be eligible for both giveaways.  Draw is August 21st.

We highly recommend an evening out to Viva Mexico with your friends, your sweetheart, or your family.  If it’s an adult-only affair, you must try the house cocktail: Viva Mexico; a slushy blend of fruit nectars, premium rum & sangria. Arrrrrrrriba!
