New Menu Soon!

Two Tostadas at sunset

As our first few months are coming to an end we are happy to introduce many new items in our improved menu. New chilies directly from Mexico mean many new exciting possibilities both for the vegetarian and the meat lover. So in the coming weeks we are hoping the new menu is coming from the printer. Some new things, traditional and otherwise, are:

The Tostada
A tostada is a flat golden fried corn tortilla topped with a layer of refried beans, your choice of vegetarian or chicken filling and topped with salsa, cream and Pico de Gallo. A crunchy flavourful friend for the sunset!

Quekas Fritas
Another small snack or starter directly from the streets of Mexico. Quekas, another popular name for Quesadillas (ke-sa-dija) are cooked in a very different style than the other (tasty) quesadillas in our menu. Here we take our corn dough, fill it with cheese and you additional choice of potato, mushrooms or chicken tinga, fold it and deep fry it until golden and crispy. Served with cream and a special salsa.

Fish Tacos from Baja California
Deep fried beer batter fish fried until golden and served in soft corn tortillas and topped with our special chipotle coleslaw salad. As authentic as it is yummy.

Cheese & Chorizo Tacos
Yep, you read that right. Gooey cheese and crumbly Chorizo. The recipe of our Chorizo might be secret and the spice mix only made by Chef Carlsson himself, but it is available for all lovers of pork to savour. This authentic and amazing chorizo was taught to us by our favourite cook and friend from Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.

Cheese and Mushroom Tacos
Mushrooms cooked in our (veg) Chorizo Spice Mix on top of cheese baked tortillas. No other words are needed.

Frijoles Charros
These beans are far from ordinary. Are they a soup? Are they a starter?  Or are they a side dish? Yes, they are Frijoles Charros and can be enjoyed however you like! Beans cooked with onion, garlic, tomato and a dash of beer.

Frijoles Fritos con Queso
Why would we need more beans in the menu? Because these beans are a completely different taste sensation. Refried, mashed and creamy beans baked with a layer of cheese and served with Totopos (home-made corn chips) and Pico de Gallo. Soft beans, stringy cheese and crunchy corn!

We have also added some international favourites with our Mexican twist! Why not trying some of these delicious things with your cold beverage?

Tortizza – The Tortilla Pizza
Thin Wheat Tortilla spread with a special salsa with oregano, topped with mozzarella and chipotle tikkas, chicken or paneer. De-li-cious!

Cheese fries
This is how I would like French Fries to be. Golden fried fries topped with mozzarella and baked until melted. Sprinkled with Pico de Gallo, Jalapeno and a few swirls of cream.

Tacos Dorados, Flautas & Taquitos

In our previous blog post, found here, I wrote about real Mexican Tacos and how they nearly always are soft and never ever shaped like a crispy yellow U. So, if you order a taco in Mexico it will be soft.

But, you still want a crispy Taco and you still want it traditional? Thankfully, the creative foodies of Mexico have a solution for you as well —The Taco Dorado, or its smaller sibling, the Taquito. There is also something called flautas,  usually longer then the Taco Dorado but otherwise mostly the same.

Dorado means Golden and also Fried and this is just what the Taco Dorado is about — golden fried tacos. But where the American fast food taco is a premade yellow u-shaped shell, Tacos Dorados are made from regular Soft Corn Tortillas that are stuffed and rolled just before they are fried until golden and crispy. Tacos Dorados are usually topped with lettuce, onion, cream and salsa. Eat them as they are or dip in our complimentary sauces and salsas.

As for the filling of our Tacos Dorados you can chose between mild shredded chicken or sautéed paneer.

What is a Mexican Taco and What Tacos Can I Find in Udaipur?

Tacos in Mexico

When you think of Tacos you might think of a yellow u-shaped crunchy shell filled with mince or beans. But, in Mexico that is not a Taco, it does not even exist.

If you ever had a regular taco in Mexico it was probably a soft corn tortilla (flat bread that resembles a chapatti but made from corn that has been through a nixtamalization process) with a topping, usually consisting of some sort of meat or vegetable. If your visit to Mexico was limited to the northern states of the country, sometimes your tortilla was probably made from wheat flour instead of corn. Most tacos in Mexico are simply a soft corn tortilla with a dry to semidry topping, and a few bowls of different salsas and other condiments, like pickled onion, coriander, or even pineapple. Most tacos are rather mild (but there are many popular exemptions) and the spiciness comes from the salsa you put on yourself. Some tacos come with cheese, but then not in the form of shredded processed cheese or cheddar on top but rather melted on to the tortilla before the topping is added.

The Chicken Fajita served in Corn Tortillas.

Our Traditional Mexican Tacos in Udaipur

There are many popular toppings in Mexico. As a first step, we have brought a few different traditional recipes that we love, and hope you will love as well.

The Fajita (pronounced fa-hee-ta) is a meat or vegetable cut in strips that resembles small belts. The name comes from the Spanish word faja, that literally means belt or strip. So fajita is a way to cut the ingredients and despite popular belief has nothing to do with a certain flavour or spicemix. In our case, like in many Mexican kitchens, we cook or chicken or paneer strips in different spices, herbs, lemon, beer and onions and add colourful bell peppers before serving them up on corn tortillas as tacos. Since this dish is mild you can always ask for a spicy salsa to put on top.

The chicken Tinga is shredded chicken chocked in a slightly spicy Chipotle and Tomato salsa with a lot of onions. Since the chicken already is cooked in a salsa (tell us your preferences of spicynes) you can adjust the flavours by adding cream or pickled onions on top.

Our Veg Tacos are for our veggie lovers who otherwise will miss out on the Tinga. We take the same salsa as in the chicken Tinga but load it with pieces of vegetables, beans and paneer.

Carne Adobada is for the pork lover. Slowly cooked pork in a tomato and Chipotle salsa. Yummy yummy served up in corn tortillas. Don’t ask us how we get so much flavours in this dish, it is a well kept family secret.

We don’t have to present the Taco Al Pastor again, we just did it in this blog post before. If you never tried it, now is the time! Read all about The Taco Al Pastor Here!

Tacos de Camarones. Juicy prawns grilled over charcoal and marinated in pineapple juice, tequila, Mexican spices and Chipotle. Tossed in a tortilla and topped with Pico de Gallo. Add salsa or our homemade Chipotle mayonnaise for your perfect flavour profile.

P.s. did you know, the most popular way to eat our Molcajetes is with corn tortillas, as tacos.

Still fantasizing of that crunchy taco? Read our post about Tacos Drados, Flautas and Taquitos here!
