Fresca Mexican Kitchen at The Gardens Mall in Mid Valley City is a nice place to have Mexican cuisines where the ambiance and the setting is quite homey. The design which is a mix of distressed brick and rustic timber is indeed a beautiful restaurant to be.
Fresca Mexican Kitchen gives me a feeling of relax and enjoyable moment with the chilling place and romantic place too. The restaurant is well designed with the beautiful bar and the restaurant claims that they serves the authentic Mexican food. For fans of outdoor dining, the restaurant also do have the al fresco area, perfect for watching people stream into and out of the mall.
– Jalapeno Poppers-
Jalapeno Poppers is a dish which I love the most. This is where Jalapeno peppers are stuffed with a cream cheese mixture then battered and deep fried to make delicious little appetizers.It is crispy at the outside and once u grab a bite of it, I am just loving the cheesy taste in it so much.
We started off with the Botanas where items are serves is small plates and it is meant for sharing. We had the Tacos Ensenada which is the chef’s recomendation. The flour tortillas which is being beer battered fish and homemade coleslaw. The dish of the classic fish taco is origanated from Ensenada, Baja California. The combination was so perfect which it really lovely with the right amount of fish and coleslaw tocomes together with it and the overall brings a delighting taste with the sauce and flavors which is being blend with it.
Camarones al Ajillo where the tiger prawns sauteed with fragrant Guajillo Chiles and garlic. The serving is simply irrestible to have it and it was really good when it is being served with flour tortillas. The portion is good enough for sharing and I just fall in love with it where the fresh prawns are flavorful with a light spiciness from the garlic which is served with it.
Nachos Grande is where the tirtilla chips is being topped with the refried beans. It is added with the Monterey Jack cheese with Ground Beef, Jalapeno Chillies, guacamole adn sour cream. The platter was a large one where it is good for sharing and have it together with beer with friends.
