I rushed to KL right after I finished my work on that day. It was raining heavily that every road heading to KL was pretty jam and I stucked for almost an hour to get to the location. However, that did not stop me from going to La Mexicana to have my scrumptious dinner with my partner at The Terrace at Hock Choon, Jalan Ampang.
It was all worthwhile coming to this place because I fell in love with the place as soon as I stepped into this place.
La Mexicana features a garden setting show kitchen in front of an ornamental pool, providing ample open air seating to enjoy a balmy evening over a cool Margarita and Mexican snack.
Alternatively, you also get to enjoy their typical hacienda style indoor (fully air-conditioned) dining room and bar where patrons can leisurely enjoy their culinary journey to find the true taste of Ol' Mexico.
We were ushered to our seats. I chose to seat outside as the weather was quite cold since the rain just stopped. Thanks to Entertainer Asia that I had the opportunity to try out the authentic Mexican food here.
Each pair was served 3 types of 'antojitos' which are traditional sharing starters, a desert and a non-alcoholic beverage. Speaking of 'Antojitos', it's something tasty and full of flavor. It is the perfect pretext to meet with family and enjoy the company of good friends. Most of the Antojitos utlize and always accompanied by spicy hot salsas or guacamole.
There were a list of food to choose from. I have no idea what to choose. Everything in the menu seems nice. Here's what I have ordered after several consideration. :P
"Nachos" La Mexicana Style - Crispy Triangles of fried handmade tortillas, topped with melted cheese and beans, served with "Pico de Gallo" sauce.
Ceviche "Verde" - Prawn Ceviche with mango and cucumber in a spicy Chile Serrano and coriander sauce on a bed of lettuce and served with chips.
Tavos "Campechanos" - 3 Tacos with handmade corn tortillas, tuffed with delicious "Carnitas" of pork a la Mexicana, served with pork Chicharron (crackling) and Molcajete sauce.
Since this was my first time trying out Mexican food, I ordered their special desert.
"Crepas De Cajeta" - Crepes bathed in Cajeta sauce (a deliciously sweet, smooth "burnt" milk caramel sauce), with walnut topping and flambeed with Tequila.
Overall, the food was good. I finally get the honor to try out the authentic Mexican food. Don't judge a book by its cover. The portion may look small on every dishes but I tell you not to believe it as my partner and I could not even finish all the three dishes and a dessert. =/ However, we managed to finish them all by eating slowly. (: (It's not good to waste food)
Before eating my desert, #letustakeaselfie! :P
