Frontera Sol of Mexico @ Jaya One

As promised, I will be posting about food once a week and this post is to fulfill my promise. Last month, I was at Frontera to do a food review thanks to Foodirector. We get to try out some of their new Mexican Degustation Menu. Previously, I did a food review for Frontera for their Christmas menu (link here) and also I have joined the Inferno Habanero Hot Wing eating challenge (link here).

Top-Shelf Guacamole
I normally don't eat the guacamole, not a fan, but just loved this one. This Top-Shelf Guacamole is served with tortilla sombrero chips. The guacamole is an avocado based sauce filled with diced tomatoes and onions.

Jalapeno Crab Cakes
Next we had the Jalapeno Crab Cakes. This was one of my favorite appetizers served that evening. The fresh crabmeat, picked over, patted dry, mixed with panko (Japanese bread crumbs) and minced jalapeno chiles. The texture is a little rough but I just can't get enough of it.

Jicama Salad
This Jicama Salad reminds me of Thai Mango Salad or Kerabu Manga Thai but more of a radish version of kerabu minus the mango and added a few cuts of oranges, avocado, bell pepper, water chestnut, mint leaves, paprika and cayenne pepper. The perfect salad to increase our appetite for the next dish.

Chicken Enchiladas
For the main, we had the Chicken Enchiladas. Boneless chicken meat which is wrapped inside the corn tortillas and covered with cheese best to eat together with the Mexican rice and baked beans.

Baja-style Fish Tacos
We also had the Baja-style Fish Tacos which is originated in Baja California, Mexico. The fish is deep fried and is served with tacos, lime and cream sauce.

Prawn Chimichanga
Last main, the Prawn Chimichanga. It is served along side with the baked beans, Mexican rice and salad just like the Chicken Enchiladas and the prawns wrapped inside the tortilla topped with cheese sauce was definitely one of the most fantastic Mexican dish I had.

Watermelon Agua Fresca
All those great Mexican food to be washed down with a glass of icy cool Watermelon Agua Fresca. I had this same drink during the Christmas menu review but it was slightly better back then.

Impossible Chocolate Flan
As for desserts, we had the Impossible Chocolate Flan which is made of chocolate cake at the bottom and flan on top, topped with toasted walnuts. For those who love the taste of condensed milk, this is pretty much a dessert made for you.

This Mexican Degustation Menu sells at RM 60++ and only can be ordered or made reservation ahead in time. Some of the dishes are available on ala carte and this set is only applicable for group of 10 pax and above.
