Authentic Mexican treats

Chicken Nachos

Craving for some authentic Mexican food in Bengaluru? Head straight to ‘Chinita’ in Koramangala 5th block. The minimalistic ambience of the restaurant is the first thing you will notice. The wooden furniture and a wall with a verticle garden give the restaurant a cool vibe. 

Choose a table by the window side, sit back and relax. Enjoy the fun Mexican music in the background while you look through the menu. 

For starters ask for a plate of Elote, grilled corn with parmesan cheese and chilli powder. It’s a unique twist to the classic charcoal grill corn. 

Grilled Tacos

Nachos were the evening’s favourite dish. The large-size, homemade tortilla chips topped with beans, salsa, oodles of cheese, jalapeno and sour cream will be a treat to your taste buds. Choose from the array of toppings like mushroom, chicken and prawn. 

The quantity is quite generous so be careful not to fill yourself up. If you are looking for a wholesome meal for the main course, a Chicken Burrito Bowl is the classic choice. If is quite heavy but hearty. 

Ask for Mushroom Grilled Tacos, if you are looking for something other than a burrito. The tacos were thin and crisp. There are different options for toppings that one can choose from, with a base varying from chicken, beef, pork and fish in non-vegetarian and beans, roasted zucchini and spinach for vegetarians.

If the taste becomes too monotonous, down your food with Tamarind Virgin Margarita. The tangy-sweet taste of the drink refreshing and quite a favourite of many.

Try the 'Almond Hochata' which is a traditional Mexican almond-rice beverage, only if you are one of those experimental foodies. This milk-based drink might not appeal to every taste bud. 

Complete your meal on a chocolaty note, with the  Chocolate Chili Cake with Vanilla Ice cream. This unique chocolate cake has a spicy twist to it. And it is amazing. 

The churros served with chocolate sauce is another option you can look for. 

Chinita is located at 25, 1st Floor, 5th Cross, Koramangala 5th Block. For details, call 95910 38009.
