Food to tickle your tastebuds

With summers round the corner, it is the right time to enjoy spicy and tangy Mexican food. Foodhall – a newly opened food store at DLF Promenade, Vasant Kunj – is holding a Mexican food festival all through April. Chefs brought in especially from the region are dishing out various Mexican meals, a live kitchen is demonstrating how to make these at home and all varieties of Mexican fruits, veggies, spices and dips are also on sale at the store.

A spokesperson for Foodhall informs Metrolife, “Mexican food is very close to Indian cuisine. Just like our North Indian fare, Mexicans also use a lot of spices and make chutneys. Since a lot of tropical fruits grow in Mexico, they also employ these in their daily food. That makes Mexican food fresh, tasty, healthy and perfect for the Indian summer.”

“For the same reason we decided to hold a Mexican food fiesta now. Besides the menu, the decor has also been done up accordingly – large pictures of Mexican daily life, music and various Mexican food bars have been installed. We are glad to see that Delhiites are loving it.”

Foodhall’s chefs inform us that their menu prides on a variety of Mexican dips. These include roasted corn salsa, Tomatillos salsa (made of green tomatoes grown only in Mexico), Mango salsa, Pineapple salsa and their speciality – the five layered dip made of refried beans, guacamole (avocadoes), roasted corn, tomato salsa, sour cream and cheddar cheese.

Foodhall also has an array of homemade tortillas (flatbread made of corn), tacos (tortilla folded with a filling), enchiladas (tortilla rolled around a filling) and nachos (corn chips) lined up. There are also two varieties of cold soups available - Tomato and roasted red pepper gazpacho and Green gazpacho – which are apparently being loved by visitors.

In Mexican desserts, you can have Tres Leches (a three layered cake of milk, fruits and cream) and Coconut flan (custard flavoured with coconut). In case you are in the mood for some fresh fruits, you can just have their mangoes, avocados or corn on the cob, true Mexican style!
