On Saturday, the foodie hubs brought us to have some classic Mexican food for dinner. Sherilyn had gone to B (her bestie)'s house for a so-called revision and later dinner at B's house. So it was just hubs, Alycia, Cass and me at Fresca Mexican Kitchen And Bar.
As it was a rainy day that night, we were freezing cold and shivering inside Fresca. It did not help that their air-conditioning was super powerful. Cass and I had to cuddle each other with only one shawl over our shoulders. So when the hot seafood soup arrived after a long wait, we attacked it, to get some instant warmth for our body. And it was lip smacking good with 3 huge mussels, fish and prawns, though a tad fiery to the tongue. Sorry, I did not manage to snap a picture of the soup as I was too famished and I knew that if I whipped out the phone and waste 5 minutes snapping away, the soup would be gone by the time I am done photographing the soup!
Hubs also ordered a Tacos Alambre, Burritos, Fajitas and Pollo a la Parrilla.
The Mexican green rice (short grain rice with coriander) in hot plate with spicy chicken was sizzling flavorful, albeit too spicy for the girls and me. Even the salsa dipping for the Fajitas was spicy. But we were enjoying the food and the spiciness generated some much needed warmth for our freezing bodies.
The pictures turned out a tad dark as the lighting in the restaurant was dim, with the intention of creating a romantic ambience, I think. This is the only downside of the restaurant that I can think of and I would have enjoyed my dinner more if the lights were brighter and air conditioning not too freezing cold.
The pictures do not do justice to the food. They look and taste way better than presented her.
Below is what my hubs called Mexican popiah. It is a dish composed of wraps to go with minced beef and salsa and an assortment of healthy and delish dips.
What is a Mexican meal without Margaritas right? Hubs ordered a glass of Margaritas Classic Glass.
We enjoyed our Mexican dinner very much, albeit the girls complained a wee bit that the food was too spicy for their taste bud to handle. Nonetheless, they still whacked every bit of the fiery food on the table, followed by gulps and gulps of water.
