whenever i listen to a mexican song, watch a mexican movie or just hear the word mexican i just suddenly crave (mexicano) food, and i have always wondered when are we ever going to have a good mexican restaurant in kuwait? and i have been waiting for someone to take initiative to open a good mexican restaurant, and please dont even think of bringing up taco bell or even thinking it!
the wait was finally over when i heard that a mexican food restaurant is opening in jabriya, you cant imagine how excited i was so i went yesterday to give it a try with fingers crossed hoping its as good as i want it to be.
the place was cosy with red walls and one wall with bricks centered with a long mirror which makes you think theres another side of the restaurant which i adore, gorgeous pictures of mexican people and of course what perfected the wall to me was frida kahlo picture! i just love that woman.
braised short rib tacos: which was my dish and it was the best dish i’ve tried so far, the meat itself is full of taste and of course theres the avocado 😉 , ive ordered one with corn tortilla and another with flour tortilla. i preferred the corn over the flour.
chocolate flan : never tried chocolate flan before and this was my first but i just cant really decide if i like it or not.
spanish chocolate bread pudding: what i loved about the pudding first is its smell, makes you want to dive in it, the mix of chocolate and cinnamon just kills me, and whats so perfect about this pudding that it has no nutella! just perfect real dark chocolate which makes it a dish to remember and i will probably ask for extra chocolate.
the owner was very sweet and welcoming, he accepted my constructive criticism and suggestions beautifully, i really recommend you to try En Mexico, they haven’t officially opened yet, soft opening from 7 till 10:30
its located in jabriya just near container 75 restaurant in front of champions gym, you just cant miss the red walls 😉
