Chef Tania Tovar all the way from Mexico City created a Mexican feast for Mumbai kars at The Pondichery Café at Sofitel Mumbai BKC.
Mexican food is guaranteed to appeal to Indians with the use of chilis, spices and corn. Even the enchiladas, burritos and tacos are somewhat familiar – so rush there to enjoy it for dinner till 5th February.
The wait staff all wearing the Mexican hat – the sombrero – which is broad brimmed and high crowned and colourful, the live music and the Tequila stand – all made for a lively evening.
|Tomato meat ball soup|
I started with the soup – clear tomato with meat balls (bean soup in the vegetarian.
There were several Mexican options in the main entrée section – enchiladas, a meat and shrimp dish among others – all flavourful!

|Entrees - a Mexican Selection|
A live enchilada counter was interesting – we chose our fillings – good choice of veg and non veg.
Of course there was the usual favourite fare – sushi, seafood on ice, cold meats and smoked salmon and the grand finale – the usual delicious desserts and an assortment of Movenpick ice creams! Tried the salted caramel – and my son, who has a dairy allergy, had the black currant sorbet!
Very delicious! Left feeling happy and full – as I always do
