"Forget the cutlery, just use your hands"

Ai Carramba! I was shocked when I had my first taste of Mexican food. Mexican food has a very strong taste - hot, sour, sweet, salty or all at once. I reckon the food in many ways reflect the landscape of this vast country, very extreme! Have you seen a Wild West movie? Yup, most of Mexico (in the exception of the south) looks like that rugged country you see. Makes you wonder what kind of food they eat.

When I heard about a Mexican restaurant on our shores, I headed out with my posse to Las Carretas in Subang USJ to try it out. The restaurant serving a variety of Tex-Mex food has a very lively atmosphere and very helpful waiters. Our waiter was kind enough to explain about the dishes as the names are in Spanish. No hablo en espanol. The Carts, the restaurant's name in English gives you a feeling that you are at the south of the border and just stopped for a hearty meal. The menu has an interesting personal touch noting the recommendations of their patrons.

Today we're trying out tacos, ribs and lamb at Las Carretas! For starters we had Quesadillas, a kind of Mexican meat pie. It's stuffed with meat, tomatoes, lettuce and other garnishes wrapped with a taco shell. The big portions whetted my appetite for the main course.   More »
