BENGALURU: A stark similarity between Indian cuisine and Mexican food cannot be easily dismissed. I could draw parallels between the spicy chunky tomato salsa to Indian tomato chutney grinded at home as the Mexican cuisine festival was made “more Indian” by the chefs at My Café restaurant in My Fortune. Had it not been for the texture and cheese I would have easily been mistaken. The Tex-Mex festival which has been on-going since November 23 will host its final round this weekend.

First we had Cheese Quesadillas, which is in fact Tortillas, a traditional bread of Mexico made either from corn or wheat and rolled in circles, just like roti. Grilled bell pepper and goat cheese was sandwiched between the tortillas. Salsa sauce and sour cream was served along with boiled veggies that made the plate a visual relish.

Next came the Enchiladas, which was another version of tortilla cuisine. Filled with goat cheese and veggies and coated with shredded cheese, the hint of spicy Enchilada sauce was a mild zing. The salty and mild cheese balanced the hotness of sauces.

Fish cakes, served after the Enchiladas was the show stealer. As a lover of seafood, I savoured the juicy fish meat. The fish fillet was shallow fried and kept tangy with the essence of lime. The first bite was like a drizzle in my mouth.

Then Tacos abounding in jalepenos, tomatoes, yellow capsicum, chicken pieces, lettuce and pineapples followed, which was refreshing to taste. The tacos were soft and cunchy. The sour cream was in harmony with the outpouring and moist goat cheese.

The food was kept true to its a la carte nature and it is ideal if you want to grab some Indian-Mexican bites with some chilled beer. But I did expect a bit more variety especially with the sauces. Salsa and sour cream is almost overrated for all Mexican cuisine. Where are my Guacamole Taquero and Chiltomate at?
