The only way that they could have improved this is... well, by charging just a fourth of what they are. But yes, here's one time that anything at a Taj will be halfway spicy.
The Taj Krishna is presenting a mouth-watering culinary delight, the Mexican Food Festival, at the Encounters restaurant from 2nd to 11 February, 2007. Chefs Roberto Treves and Sergio Snyder have been flown all the way from Mexico to treat the gourmands of the city to some exotic dishes, and to recreate the tastes of the 3,000-year-old cuisine.
There will be a buffet spread of the choicest items consisting of 3 non-vegetarian dishes and 5 vegetarian dishes, along with a variety of salads and desserts, which costs Rs. 850 + taxes and includes Mexican specialities like Nachos, Tacos, Fajitas, Enchiladas, Quesidillas, Fish Vracruzana, Chicken Molepoplano, Lamb Chops Tlaxcala and Tex Mex Pizza, and desserts like Celaya and Tequila Mousse.
Mexican cuisine uses chillies in a myriad ways, but not all the dishes are hot. A vast majority of chillies are sun dried or smoked, during which the hot liquid in the chilli veins evaporates and only the flavor is retained. Some of the exotic varities of chilli are Ancho, Mulato, Guajillo, Pasilla, Chipotle and Cascabel.
Though Mexican food is synonymous with the chilli, it has many other delicious dishes and is known for the unique method of cooking and flavoring. Mexican cooking uses olive oil and malt vinegar, and the spices used are tarragon, oregano, coriander leaves and black pepper, besides chillis. The meat and the poultry are cooked in different sauces.
There is also a Calypso band playing through the evening with shots of tequila being served to the guests. For further details, please contact the restaurant at 6666-2323.
