June 19, 2014

While Bangla Road in Patong is known as party central, hungry stomachs can rejoice with the fiesta of flavours being served at The Mexican.

The restaurant, the latest creation of celebrity chef Daniel Isberg, held their grand opening event last week with sampler trays of tacos, quesadillas, chili con carnes, and Mexican-style cocktails all on tap.

Isberg told The Phuket News that, while working in Hollywood, California, many of his co-workers and kitchen staff were of Mexican descent and introduced him to the authentic flavours and ingredients of their native cuisine.

“I wanted to bring some great flavours to the island, especially this area, because it’s great food for anytime of day,” he said.

The menu has everything from burritos to fresh guacamole and all kind’s of tacos, including Isberg’s special fish tacos that were a clear hit on opening night. The pulled pork quesadillas were a great companion with The Mexican’s margaritas, especially the lime-flavoured one.

Another favourite was the chili con carne, a medly of minced beef, beans, and other ingredients (including a hint of cinnamon!) that are scooped up with tortilla chips.

Even with the booming nightlife and Thai-style street food filling the nostrils outside, the walls within The Mexican house a typical south-of-the-border experience complete with bright colours and sombreros!
