My first post on a Mexican restaurant in Dubai. Have been passing by this restaurant almost every time I visit Dubai Mall but never was sure if mexican cuisine was the right one for me. Finally I explore and its been an interesting ride at ROSA MEXICANO. There are some that you can only find it here, so scroll down to know more…
I’ve noticed this restaurant several times before for their catchy interiors. The restaurant is big and spacious and infact they have a mini replica of the Dubai Mall waterfall inside the restaurant which you can see in the picture above. That’s where we sat where the little ones won’t bother to bug you as they are as much thrilled eating next to the waterfall.
I’ve noticed one thing while we waited for our drinks. Their staff going around tables with avacados. That’s when I found out they were making fresh Guacamole in front of them. Majority of customers make a point to order their signature Guacamole which is mainly avacado combined with others like jalapeno, tomato, onion and cilantro. This is a must try in here and you should not miss this order. Make sure you try it medium spicy else it could get a little blank in taste.
We were able to enjoy both drinks, the frozen pomegranate margarita and Strawberry Mojito. The frozen pomegranate came thick so I was more comfortable with the Mojito while my wife enjoyed the margarita. We also tried their plate of trio which consisted of chicken wings, shrimp and crispy chicken tacos. To me the chicken wings were the best here. The crispy chicken and shrimp tacos came crispy but somehow from taste perspective it didn’t go very well to my liking specially their prawn tacos.
The Quesadillas was mainly cheese and meat. It could be mixed with two flavours of your choice which would be grilled chicken, grilled steak, marinated shrimp or roasted vegetables. We tried it with grilled chicken and steak in it. I enjoyed the grilled chicken more than the steak as I could taste some flavour in it. On the other hand the chicken burrito came loaded. It was filling and you wouldn’t find much to complain about their burrito.
The Mixta Fajitas was the grand part. They would serve everything on a plate and we could prepare our own fajitas. From the grills the giant prawns really stood out. It tasted fresh and everyone was happy with it. The thick beans curry also came out well. The house rice tasted very original and not necessary it has to go with everyone’s liking. I must agree whatever we ordered came in lightning speed, the delivery time was pretty quick and impressive. The staff was also kind enough to explain us about what is being served and gave us a better understanding on the food we ordered.
They make many items fresh in their kitchen including their desserts like you see above. Both their desserts were mesmerizing. The pound cake which is soaked in three different milk came really soft and you just couldn’t stop appreciating the taste of this dessert. Their mexican donuts was again very different from the traditional donuts that I see and eat very often. The donuts were also presented in style which came inside a cover accompanied by 3 different sauces. He then shakes the cover and unveils the donuts on the plate. Oh and they were sparkling as if it were diamonds(sugar) around the donuts. The donuts were very light, warm and gets better as you have it dipped in their sauce. To me the mexican caramel here was the best. It’s not the usual caramel which is sticky as a glue but caramel sauce at it’s best. You need to try this to know.
