This varied range of cuisines, is making our sordid corona bound lives very exciting and for this we are grateful to Chef Vikas of Lounge Hospitality by Embassy Leisure.
Chef Vikas is a good friend of mine and is a highly talented chef who has over two decades of work experience. He is well travelled and has journeyed across some of the best culinary capitals of the world with a prolonged stint in Mexico, which makes him one of the best people to showcase Mexican cuisine in Bangalore.
He has been the brains behind the iconic Sanchez restaurant and now brings us Mexico on a plate in a home delivery format via the new entrant called Mad Mex. So if you are Mad about Mex, then this is where you get your fix 😀
(And as an aside, after this do wait for the final cuisine in the ‘quad-rology’ which is the Garam Masala brand serving our very own Indian!!!)
The Menu –
An amalgam of Texan and Mexican cuisine, Mad Mex uses locally available ingredients to create delicious flavors to please the local palate.
The menu spans the typical offerings like nachos, tacos, quesadillas, burritos, etc and some all time favorites like baked potato skins, guacamole etc and also includes some unusual dishes like the Pulled jackfruit burrito bowl served with quinoa, which will keep pulling your fingers towards it as you addictively reach for more 😀
Another dish that warrants mention is the Corn ribs, whose innocuous appearance belies the burst of flavor and texture that truly surprises and pleases.
The Packaging –
This needs its own space in the limelight, being as it were of bio degradable material, so aptly made out of corn starch. Sturdy, elegant and eco friendly with attention to detail as detailed by the multi hued cactii, chillies, maracas and other Mexican paraphernalia strewed across its labels.
My Tasting Menu –
A larger portion of vegetarian (for my family) and just one fish dish … this was my menu for the day. Since it happened to be my husband’s birthday coincidentally, Chef Vikas made sure to add his special touch with a birthday greeting emblazoned across the Tres Leches cake slice 😀
The music in the video, reflects the occasion 😀

When the husband's birthday is celebrated with some hearty TexMex fare, then the video will play to the tune of aaaapppyyy birday to you 😀 @chefvikasseth and @madmexblr move forward with the trilogy that began with @hakkachowblr and @bangalorepizzaco and they make their next stop at Mad Mex (psst and it's going to be a 'quad-rology' too but more about that, another day) And if you are mad about mexican food, then this is where you should make a stop too, especially since this is Chef Vikas's forte, having stayed in Mexico and thoroughly obtaining expertise in its cuisine. Loved the food and loved the biodegradable corn based packaging … How apt really. More details coming soon on the blog at www.currylines.com Thank you @chefvikasseth and @madmexblr for making the birthday special. #currylines #mexican #mexicancuisine #homedelivery #texmex #gocorona #stayhome #madmex #locallove #ecofriendly #hygien #sanitizer #loungehospitality #salsa #nachos #cheese #burrito #ifoundawesome #igersofbangalore #lbbbangalore #bangalorefoodies #happybirthday #felizecumpleanos #getyourmexon
