Frontera Sol of Mexico @ Jaya One

Last weekend, I joined the Foodirector Hangout #4 at Frontera Sol of Mexico in Jaya One. It was my first time joining their event and I was excited :D Frontera is a restaurant that serves authentic Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine!

 Cosy setting in Frontera

The new group menu is designed for 10 pax and above, at RM60++ per person. We got to try it out during the food tasting session. Of course, most of the items are available for a la carte as well :)

Watermelon Agua Fresca
A chilled drink with a mix of watermelon juice and lime. It is very refreshing and quite sour due to the lime. I felt that the amount of lime in it was slightly too much for my liking where I couldn't taste much watermelon. If they cut down on the lime, it would be perfect :)

 Top-Shelf Guacamole served on Tortilla Sombrero
The guacamole is amazing! Fresh avocado is mashed, added with some spice and topped with tomatoes. A good starter to open up the appetite :) Love the hint of spiciness!

Jalapeno Crab Cakes served with roasted Jalapeno Remoulade
The insides are generously filled with crabmeat! 

 Jicama Salad
Shredded sengkuang with orange, cucumber, capsicum, cayan, pepper, avocado and mint! Sour, spicy and tangy, everything must be mixed well and eaten together to balance out the taste :) Refreshing and spicy at the same time!

 Chicken Enchiladas
Chicken is wrapped with tortilla and topped with melted cheese! Tasted like nachos to me xD Baked beans was alright. The rice on the other hand was delicious and fragrant!

 Baja-style Fish Tacos
The batter used for the fish is crispy and yummy! Very flavourful especially when wrapped together in taco filled with spicy vegetables. 

 Prawn Chimichanga
Prawns wrapped with spicy baked beans and topped with cheese. Bitting into the fresh juicy prawns and spicy sensation was a delight. However, it was quickly overpowered by the cheese.

 Impossible Chocolate Flan
Plus point for this dessert is that it's not too sweet. However, it can be improved as the caramel custard was too soft and the cake was slightly dry. 

Thank you once again to Foodirector and Frontera for the food tasting session!
