I finally got around to trying the newish haute mexican place Mez (5410 Page Rd).
I was extremely excited about it, but unfortunately like many restaurants of this type it had potential but fell way short.
Our table tried a couple of mixed drinks — none of them were good, and the mojito was actually quite bad. We started with the guacamole, which was generic and bland.
Out of the three main courses, one was excellent, one was mediocre with the potential to be very good, and the other was just decent.
These are the tacos de pescado, and they are fantastic. By far the best fish tacos I have had in Durham. The first one I thought was just good because it was light on the sauce — the second one was drenched and was utterly delicious. Order this if you go, and ask for extra sauce.
The roasted chicken breast stuffed with cilantro pesto had wonderful flavor, but unfortunately the chicken was cooked so much that it was incredibly dry and was basically inedible.
The mole dish was faithful and decent, but nothing to get excited about.
So yes, I loved the fish tacos. I would say it is worth the trip to get them, except on the way out I saw this:
Hybrid parking. Really? No thanks, Mez.
