Food For Thought: ‘Crazy Chicken’ Mexican Restaurant Review

Hello friends. I hope this finds you well. I’m here again with another restaurant review. I feel like you’re starting to get to know me a bit. I’m sure by now you’ve guessed that I love food, but you can’t possibly know how much. I mean, I love all kinds of food from all ethnicities. I do not discriminate.

Having lived in the GTA (gasp, don’t hate me ) we had access to pretty much any kind of food we wanted, at almost any time. The only food we didn’t have readily available to us was Mexican. Not that there weren’t Mexican restaurants around, just that we didn’t like any of them.

So you can imagine my absolute delight, my pure unadulterated joy when I saw sooo many Mexican restaurants in this area!

As an aside, Mexican food is something I (and when I say I, I mean Old El Paso) occasionally make at home with varying degrees of success. Typically met with tepid reviews, or my favourite — mild indifference. Good enough, but not good, if you know what I mean.

At this point in my life I’m comfortable with failure and aware of my strengths and weaknesses. My weakness, as it relates to Mexican food and more specifically tacos, would be not knowing how many is too many. Also known as the TSP or taco saturation point.

My strength, as it relates to same, would be knowing that someone else should make said tacos.

Therefore, it is this realization that has sent me on my next review. However, with sooo many places, how to decide? Full disclosure, I’ve tried a few places already, but wanted to try a place I hadn’t been. So I let the fates decide, made a list, closed my eyes and landed on Crazy Chicken in Leamington.

You didn’t think I’d forget about you, Leamington? Not a chance. You share joint custody of my appetite with Kingsville.

But I digress.

I ended up ordering for both of us, and kept it simple. I ordered a pile of tacos (never mind how many). We got equal amounts of beef, chicken and chorizo. They were each fresh and delicious in their own right, but the chorizo really hit the spot for me.

Apparently it also hit the spot for Steve too, as the chorus of “mmm … mmmm … mmmmm’s” was almost deafening.

Everything tasted fresh and healthy, but also like a party for your mouth. The green salsa was superb and added a burst of flavour without adding too much heat. I spent just over $20 and both Steve and I were full to brimming.

Overall, the food was amazing, filling and economical. Steve summed it up best, saying “ #%*&, was that ever delicious!”  Thank you, Crazy Chicken of Leamington, for confirming my suspicions that no matter the question or issue, tacos are invariably the answer.

Perhaps you are facing a conundrum in your life, at a crossroads, seeking a little clarity. In that event, I’d suggest you visit Crazy Chicken in Leamington and mull it over while you chew.
