Ensalada de jicamy y betabel en aderezo de tamarindo (Salad of Mexican turnip and beetroot in tamarind dressing)
Mini sopes con queso (Handmade corn tortilla with lettuce, sour cream and black bean sauce)
Esquites (Steamed tender corn with sweet chili and lime)
Our dinner kicked start with 3 varieties of starters, each of them are flavorful in their own way. I like Ensalada de jicamy y betabel en aderezo de tamarindo the most because I love the strong beetroot taste. A healthy starters with lots of vegetable for all of us.
Crema de frijol (Creamy bean soup)
A very rich and creamy bean soup, served with corn tortillas. According to the chef, this is a very traditional soup in Mexico. Honestly I am not a bean soup person but I finished the whole bowl by myself that night! Unbelievable to me, I do like the hot creamy bean soup they served here! Nice job on the soup.
Pescado a la Veracruzana (Fish Fillet in Veracruz style simmered in tomato sauce, capers, olives and capsicum)
Fresh fish fillet cooked in traditional Mexican cooking style - Veracruz Style. The fish fillets are juicy, sweet and spicy, sour and salty. I love its addictive flavours and I finished the bowl of Mexican rice with it.
Flan Traditional (Classic Mexican custard)
This is a very delicious dessert which tastes like a caramel pudding. I love they paired it with lotsa berries, sugar syrup and crispy sugar candy stick.
