Bien Trucha

We headed into the suburbs to Geneva for some yummy Mexican food at Bien Trucha. It was a long drive from the city, but this little suburb is quite nice with a river flowing right through it.

We went to Bien Trucha for dinner and came early since they don’t take reservations. The sister restaurant – A Toda Madre located next door does take reservations. The menus are slightly different.

Bien Trucha

Fresh chips and a refried bean dip (Complimentary) very fresh and really good. A nice start to the meal.

Bien Trucha

Fresona ($10) is made of strawberries, lime, sugar, orange liquor, and exotico blanco. really good and refreshing.

Bien Trucha

Mojito ($9) has fresh muddled mint, lime, brown sugar, rum, and a splash of soda.

Bien Trucha

Ceviche ($8) has tilapia, lime, extra virgin olive oil, serrano, tomato, and onion. I wasn’t a fan of the ceviche since I felt like it needed more acidity.

Bien Trucha

Crema de Chile Poblano ($5) has creamy roasted poblano, potato cubes and queso fresco. It was pretty spicy, but the flavours were great.

Bien Trucha

Esquites ($4) has grilled corn, epazote-butter, lemon-aioli, queso cotija, and chile piquin.It was really good and addictive! Highly recommended!

Bien Trucha

Pescado taco ($11) is crispy beer battered tilapia, red cabbage, onion, tomato, lime, and a chipotle-morita aioli. Quite delicious!

Bien Trucha

Pastor taco ($10) contains ancho-guajillo marinated pork, cilantro, onion, pineapple,  and morita salsa. The pineapple was perfect to add juiciness and sweetness to the pork.

Bien Trucha

Bien Trucha ($10) has grilled skirt steak, chorizo, chihuahua, and roasted tomatillo salsa. No worries, there is not dog in this taco. Chihuahua is a type of cheese. I had to ask the server cause I thought it was funny. it was a delicious taco.

Bien Trucha

a la Diabla tacos ($11) has sauteed shrimp, butter-mojo de ajo, chipotle lime, and avocado slice. It came piping hot and with 4 pieces per order. It wasn’t too spicy and tasted great.

Bien Trucha

Flan was our dessert. It was pretty good as well. A nice ending to a great meal.

Overall, I really liked the restaurant. They have delicious taco and great drinks. A must go place for the summer. If you’re just a visitor in Chicago, it very very out of the way. Good thing I had my aunt and uncle to take me around the different suburbs.
