La Frontera, Sol of Mexico By Sam Gibbs
|The delicous Chipotle and Chili Soup|
Mexican cuisine has always been one of my favourite pursuits. Sadly the number of restaurants serving authentic Mexican food is a bit of a rarity in these parts. However tucked into the lively Palm Square food court and bar zone of Jaya One shopping complex in Petaling Jaya one can find the Frontera restaurant that offers a true flavour of Mexico with attention to authenticity, and in some cases an adventure into some fusion of flavours with some of their offerings.

I did in fact attend two events held at Frontera so this review is a synopsis combined.
|A very tasty rich|
The second event organized in part by Marketing and Communications students from the adjacent IACT college was a more fundamental insight into Frontera’s authentic Mexican style. The added novelty was having the invited media don aprons and prepare Tacos.

Of particular note and my personal favourite was the Tamalis wrapped in corn husk. The dish is simple yet delicious with a texture that I found very satisfying. As with most Mexican cuisine you wont find a riot of flavours but more focus on bringing to the fore the original flavours of the base ingredients.
