La Mexicana – Authentic Mexican Cuisine, Ampang
Margarita Mexican Style
There’s a new kid in town, and it’s going to be grand. For nine years I’ve heard expat friends whine and moan over a heartfelt longing for authentic Mexican cuisine. Finally, those groans can be replaced with cheerful shouts of joy as they soon discover genuine Mexican goodness at La Mexicana at Terrace behind Hock Choon.
Stopping in for a preview before the official opening, we sampled exquisite dishes from the kitchen that had our hearts, minds and taste buds believing they were back in the Americas. A few dishes that must be on your order are: Ceviche Acapulco Style (fish marinated in lime juice); Sopa de Mariscos (a delicious rich broth of seafood); Enchiladas Verdes (shredded chicken filled tortillas smothered with cheese and a green chili sauce) and; Crepas de Cajeta (crepes with sweet boiled browned milk). Corona beer with a wedge of lime or a Mexican style Margarita made with a generous shot of tequila are ideal refreshments.
According to Chef Carmela (a Mexican restauranteer for over 25 years), La Mexicana aims to bring both authentic Mexican cuisine and genuine Mexican hospitality to the restaurant scene in KL. As Carmela says … “for Mexicans, sitting at the table is a time to enjoy the company of friends and family, savour the many flavours of 10,000 years of culinary tradition, and simply forget your cares… enjoy, buen provecho y hasta pronto!”
