La Mexicana @ Hock Choon Terrace Ampang

It was with great pleasure and excitement that I went to try out their smartphone application at one of their merchants La Mexicana at Hock Choon Terrace Ampang last week. Read on for my review of the restaurant, and a bit more on The Entertainer.

Reaching the venue on a wet rainy evening, La Mexicana looked every bit the mexican ambiance, with promises of authentic mexican cuisine. Now I've had my fair bit of mexican cuisine, hence it intrigued me that La Mexicana's owner informed us that they serve only authentic mexican dishes. Check out what we had that night below.

#1 Tacos de "Bistec con Chorizo"

I guess if you're having mexican cuisine, you must always try their tacos. I picked the Tacos de "Bistec con Chorizo" mainly because from the menu, there was the word "juicy beef" inside. True to its description the tacos came stuffed with delicious juicy beef steak and homemade "chorizo" served with coriander, onion and molcajete red sauce. I do like the meaty feel of this dish, going well with the tacos it came wrapped in with.

#2 Burritos de Chilorio

Burritos are one of the must have dishes as well in La Mexicana, this time around we tried the Burritos de Chilorio. The dish came with four fried burritos made with flour tortillas stuffed with traditional "Chilorio" (shredded and seasoned pork), on a bed of fresh greens drizzled with a citrus dressing. The meat was good, with the dish reminding me of our local "popiah", albeit in a more exotic presentation.


#3 "Sopes de Pollo"

Pretty n ew to this dish, I ordered the Sopes de Pollo not knowing exactly what I will be getting. It was a pleasant surprise though, as the dish came with 3 "sopes" (corn dough base), topped with chicken, lettuce, cream and homemade cheese with salsa roja. It had a tangy flavour to it, perfect as a meal opener or appetizer before the mains.


#4 Queso fundido Con Hongos

What can I say, if you love your cheese, then go for the Queso fundido Con Hongos. The dish comes with mouth watering melted cheese with lots of mushrooms. Inside the bowl as well, there are the Serrano chile, tomatoes, and onions served with flour tortillas on the side. I do like the cheese, giving it a very cheesy texture and flavour to the dish. The mushrooms were done nicely too, blending with the cheese to give you that extra bite.


#5 Crepas de Cajeta

We ended the meal with the Crepas de Cajeta for dessert. These really sweet crepes bathed in Cajeta sauce - a deliciously sweet, smooth "burnt" milk caramel sauce, provided a really nice sweet end to a good meal out at La Mexicana. The dessert was presented with accompanying walnut topping and flambeed with Tequila.
