Blue Diamond Inn Mexican Food

6 07 2007

I found out about this Mexican food joint in Chulia Street from NST. I never knew there is one in Penang! It is sort of like a cafe located in the Blue Diamond Inn. I thought of giving this place a try to see for myself.

So, many dishes to try means more eating-man-power needed. I invited some ex-classmates and a couple of friends to dine there on my birthday. Okay, that’s selfish of me :P Their menu consists of authentic Mexican food names that those unfamiliar will be left stranded deciding. A little help from the staff would be nice. There were 6 of us, so we managed to try about 70% of the Mexican dishes in their menu. They serve standard Western food as well such as burgers and hotdogs, fish & chips, lamb chop, etc. Our orders were taken by a lady who can’t take orders. Blur like sotong. Haiz.


Drinks and food were served a tad too slow and inefficient (I was asked a couple of times what drink was ordered). Having only one man cooking, a few dishes had turned a bit cold when all 6 dishes came at once. This guy is the one who can whip up Mexican food. His photo is actually on the menu cover. Hehe. When I inquired the operating hours of the cafe, I was told he goes on vacation quite often.

Chilli con carne

I think this is chilli con carne. In The Sims 2, I learn that it is a stewed dish served in a bowl. Jian and I were scratching our heads when we couldn’t find anything close to that out of the 6 dishes. Sorry if I was wrong. Man, I have absolutely no idea. Basically, everything tasted almost the same. What sets them apart are the cuts and shapes of the tortilla wrap and additional ingredients in some dishes ;)


Fajita (I think)


Beef enchilada. It is supposed to be topped with cheese sauce and baked. It doesn’t appear to be baked.


Chicken quesadilla.

We also had tacos and a plate of chicken and bean burrito. They are all spicy despite that I had ordered mild. Like Nando’s, you can choose to have mild, medium or hot.

Location: Blue Diamond Inn, Chulia Street. A few shophouses down on your left once turn in from Penang Street.
Operating hours: 6pm-12am. Closed on Monday.

Tiramisu cake from Jenni’s! Thanks for buying, Jian ^_^ Just the right balance of sweetness and creamyness. Scrumptious! I love that there’s hint of rum accompanies each bite.

*Note: My name is not Ah Ma (grandmother) okay. Cheeky punya Jian. In fact, it is my position and level (second ultimate next to Ah Kong currently hold by Jian) in ex-U6S1 class. Teeheehee :P
