    Barrio Chino serves delicious Mexican food. I went with the Pork and Pineapple Tacos. What I got was a pleasant surprise. Smaller portions, just perfect for me with perfectly cooked pork which was enhanced by the pineapples. I accompanied the meal with Carmenere which worked perfectly. I had room for dessert, I tried the Strawberry taquitos and they were a dream. Fresh strawberries in a crepe like taco with just a bit of dulce de leche and powder sugar. These are a must if you drop by the place, it was one of the few times I ate dessert, left with a happy tongue and did not feel as if I'd have to hit the gym for three hours just to work it off. I'll definitely be returning.
