Review: Mexiloko

Mexiloko's Slushy
Mexiloko’s Slushy

Mexican food, ah, most places don’t get it right. And the number of places that serve Mexican cuisine in our city can be literally counted on our fingers.

Mexiloko, a QSR, that recently opened at Colaba Causeway caught our attention and we hopped in to try out the food.

Bright colorful decor with a couple of tables, Mexiloko is primarily a take away place. The menu is extensive with Nachos, Tacos, Empanadas, Burritos, Mex’d Up Bowls and more.

We started our meal with the Golden Delight Nachos. Crispy and cheesy, they were good, although not the best that we have had. Next up was the Lime and Coriander Fish Taco. Juicy Basa in a crispy taco topped with cheese and lettuce, the best dish of the evening!

Chipotle Chicken Quesadilla

The Chipotle Chicken Quesadilla was flavorful and delicious too but not better than the Fish Taco. We also tried the Zesty Soya Mex’d Up Bowl. Mince Soya served with tomato Mexican rice, beans, salsa, lettuce and pico. Although the taste was good, we found the entire dish a bit too dry for our palate.


We saved the best for the last, Churros with Chocolate Sauce. For 60 bucks only, this one is a steal. Cinnamon and Chocolate are a match made in heaven.

Overall, Mexiloko is a great option for a quick snack and beats all others at their price point. They serve 5 different types of salsas that vary in flavour and hotness. Oh my Jalapeno was our favourite from the 5 and for the spice lovers, the Firecracker salsa will definitely crack you up!

Wine Week in association with Deutsche Bank and All Things Nice!

We recently attended the preview dinner at Ellipsis, Colaba, for #WineWeek that is happening from 25th August to 31st August at 25 elite restaurants in the city. 

We were given a set menu and each course was paired with an Indian and International wine. Nikhil Agarwal of All Things Nice and Chef Cheung played hosts and shared a lot of interesting stories behind the wines as well as the dishes. 

We loved how the taste of wine differed when paired with the dishes. Amongst our favourites were the Zonin Prosecco Brut, Italy which was served to us before we started our meal and the Myra Shiraz, India (2010) which was served with the second course Peas, Prawns, Truffle, Parmesan, Pickles, Millet, Amaranth. 

The food at Ellipsis was not so impressive but the dessert made up for all the inconsistency in the mains! Cinnamon Cookie, Cinnamon Ice Cream with dark chocolate. By the end of it, we were left craving for more of the delicious ice-cream!
