Bishop's Stortford -The Prickly Pear

Last night we decided to go out for a late Birthday meal. We've been talking about trying the Prickly Pear, an American and Mexican restaurant for a while, so this seemed like a good opportunity.

We booked a table online which all went smoothly.

On arrival we perused the menu, and spotted a tasty sounding starter - fried potato skins with avocado, tomatoes, and cheese, with a side of sour cream. We explained that we did not eat dairy products, so they kindly offered to add extra salsa instead of the cheese and cream.

There was plenty to share and it was very tasty.

For mains we plumped for the vegetable fajitas, again without cheese or cream, and they offered to give us extra guacomole and salsa, which was appreciated.

The fajitas were tasty, but some more adventurous vegetables and a bit of chilli and spice would have been nice. We were also disappointed that there were no refried beans on offer as a side dish.
But the servings wer generous, with plenty of tortilla wraps provided.

We passed on the dessert menu and plumped for cocktails instead :-)

The restaurant has a nice ambience, the staff are friendly and helpful, and it's a bit more upmarket looking that many other Mexican restaurants.
