Review: Mexiloko

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.

Fish Taco

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!

Review: JamJar Diner

  
You will wonder why the place is called JamJar Diner until you’re served your drinks in cute little jam jars. *no kidding*
Located at Versova, where there is a queue of eateries trying to impress the locals, JamJar Diner is one of the most recent contenders. 



The little blue door that leads you inside this restaurant can be quite deceiving. Once you enter, you realize that the place is spacious, divided into two floors and has a terrace seating. We chose the terrace seating and simply loved the breezy, comfortable ambience.

The menu looks interesting but limited. The bar menu has all the cocktails with a twist. We called for the Red Sangria and the White Sangria. Although these sangrias were full of flavour, we would rather opt for the classic sangrias, the twist was too twisted for our taste buds. The Caprioska that we ordered next was stiff and perfect.


Coming to the food, we first called for the Nachos, and soon a huge portion of crispy tortillas with generous toppings arrived at our table. Absolutely delicious, we would totally recommend this! Next, we tried the Shrimp Popcorn. This was also quite good, makes for a great snack with drinks. Lastly we had the Chicken burger. The burger was passable as the patty could have been bigger and we missed some extra cheese!


For desserts we tried the Rocky Road – good, with large chocolate pieces that made it rather comfortable to eat, Mango Cheesecake – disappointing, we definitely think they need to work on this and the Ice-Cream Cookie Sandwich – this was the best out of the lot. 

Overall, JamJar Diner, with its impressive interiors, is a great place for a couple of drinks and some finger food. Skip, if you are looking forward to have an elaborate meal.
