Mexican cuisine is one of the most lively and entrenched traditions in the world. Chillies and Avocado are most often used ingredients in Mexican food. Why Mexico has rich culinary tradition? Not only it is made of fresh ingredients but also Mexican spices produces authentic flavors. Chef Guillermo Favela came all the way from Dubai Creek to savour the Mexican cuisine. He brings the variety of Mexican gastronomy and wealth of indigenous ingredients of Mexican cuisine. I really wanted to try tacos, tamales, nachos, salads, and freshly made salsa.
Definitely #Vivamexicana is an extravaganza spread with exquisite dishes of Mexican haute cuisine.
I just loved the quesadilla which is a wheat tortilla or a corn tortilla filled with a savoury mixture with exotic vegetables, cooked on a griddle, then folded in half to form a half-moon shape. It really tastes amazing with the smoked sausage. Basically Quesadillas in Mexico are made using only one folded Tortilla. If the Tortilla is a flour tortilla and is not folded then it is called a “Gringa”. If you use two no folded Tortillas then it is called Sincronizadas.If you use one crisp corn tortilla then it is called Tostada.
Chef always made us feel comfy and explained the dishes in details like the ingredients used, preparation time etc We had wide options in Burritos, Tostadas, Enchiladas and Quesidilla….All the dishes were luscious.
I love the Taco fillings which is unique in taste and leave you craving for more. The Indian love the Mexican food very much. Both cuisines have got striking similarities. The Mexican rice was the absolute delicious with combination of cumin, chilli and oregano. It was my favorite Mexican dish.
My Verdict : Enjoy all the Mexican fare has to offer with traditional dishes during the ongoing festival #VivaMexican at Hyatt Regency Mumbai
