Xico – The best Mexican restaurant in town!
Mexican food is so full of colour, life & Music. Its like a Pinata exploding in your mouth- Kate McLennan
Xico is like that Mexican Chick who knows her food too well, the one who is out to kill it, not only does she knows that she is beautiful but also that everyone wants to have her. She is fierce and knows her Mariachi music well, with sass she dances on it while sipping on her Margaritas. Xico – The best Mexican restaurant in town!
The above description might come across as an exaggeration to a few, but that’s what this place at least did to us. We were in a trance with beautiful Mexican music, all the more appealing contemporary Mexican interiors (we could relate them quite well with Indian designs too) and the oh so fantastic food. The bright yellow sofas and the colorful decor adds the warmness to this place.
The food affair here is quite sorted, not much of a Jazz just quick easy and straightforward plates the closest to authentic Mexican available in Mumbai.
What you can’t miss here is the freshly made Guacamole at your tableside customisable as per your taste tolerance, Nacho chips along with their distinctive homemade salsas. Me and my Sister we fought for the last spoon of Guac.
Queso Fundido is a Mexican version of Cheese fondue, only this one was a bit stretchy and floury spiced with chili.
Ollas De Frijol is a serving of pure beans cooked in a pot served with tortillas. Charros are simple and tasty.
Esquite Maiz is fresh corn kernels tossed with chipotle and cotija cheese.
For Flautas tried the Verdure which is the crispy rolled tortilla filled with carrots, squash and bell pepper with guacamole and queso fresco. Didn’t particularly enjoyed the veggies felt like too much happening in one bite.
Must try Tacos is Camote the sweet potato hash turned out beautiful with Jalapenos and Pineapple chutney along with sliced Avacado.
Papas Con Rajas has simple components yet its one of the distinct dish for us. The baby potatoes cooked in cheese and cream served with red salsa Mexican rice was the most loved dish.
The drinks here are top notch, they show whose the man in the house and are a perfect match for their vibrant Mexican women.
We enjoyed the Xico Paloma, OAXACA Old Fashion, and Xico Sour. All their syrups and extracts made in-house.
In desserts, Pastel Tres Leches impressed us with strawberry compote being is the real charmer of the dish.
The Churros were okay, but the hot chocolate was thin and less chocolate concentrated to our liking. We are a fan of some thick Spanish hot chocolate even to go with churros.
Don’t get intimated by the name your tongue can’t roll out, irrespective of this you are going to have a gala time.
And if you were wondering what Xico is? then its “State of Mexico.”
It is now the time for you to go out and get absorbed in a vibrant evening.
