What happens when you walk around hungry in Cebu IT Park at Midnight? --- you discover wonderful eating places.
|Meet the wrestler, Red Lizard|
Introducing Red Lizard Taqueria by the Abaca Group. It's a Mexican-inspired taqueria serving quick and fast taquitos, nachos, burritos, tacos and margaritas. The place is great for casual diners.
Think of this place as a more laid-back and affordable Maya restaurant. It's another successful restaurant for the Abaca Group which also owns Beqaa, Luncheonette, Tavolata, Phat Pho and Abaca Baking Company.
I love their whole theme which centers around the popular Lucha Libre or Mexican Wrestling. Their wall art depicts the varied wins of the Red Lizard inside the wing. Their ceiling lights, distressed wooden tables, and decorated table tops, just exude that Cantina atmosphere.

I tried their Chipotle Chicken Taquitos or flautas. These are overloaded with shredded lettuce, creamy queso and sour cream. Don't forget to top it off with any of their special sauces.

I would definitely go back and try their other dishes. And I'd add more food photos as well.
They're open from 11am to 1am, Monday-Sunday. They're located in Filinvest Cyberzone beside Jollibee and Mooshi.
And if you're interested, every Wednesday is Salsa day.

P.S. After my initial visit, I've been back to Red Lizard twice. I've ordered their Taco Originales which is their hard shell corn taco. It has shredded lettuce, beef, queso and salsa. Every order has 2 tacos.
Another dish that I ate on those visits was their Carnitas quesadillas. 4 pieces of cheesy and meat-filled slightly toasted goodness.
