Tex-Mex Food @ Nachos Nachos, Kota Damansara


strawberry and mango margaritas - but beware, no alcohol within (RM6.90+ each)

Trust Splashie Boy to find a new Tex-Mex place to try out especially since it is his favourite food. He spotted this place when he explored the new Giant hypermarket at Kota Damansara last Friday, hence he brought me here yesterday. The huge hypermarket houses quite a lot of food - J Co Donuts, Wendy's, Kiliney Kopitiam, Korean BBQ Chicken, Noodle Station, JM Bariani, KFC, the yet to open Otak-Otak place (which is linked to Pick & Brew) and etc etc.


nachos chili beef (but weirdly no beef?) - RM11.90+


The no-frills restaurant is painted dark green including the ceiling (which is covered with aluminium zinc) and a few Mexican touches in the form of black and gold somberos on one wall. The menu is quite simple - a few varieties of nachos with different toppings, quesadillas, tacos, main meals with Mexican rice, fajitas and etc. We ordered nachos of course - the chili beef version but instead we were served the chicken variety. Kinda weird but I didn't realise the mix up, until I just looked at the receipt since I didn't order. Anyway, we weren't complaining as it was tasty stuff especially with the not spicy jalapeno chillies on top. We were given a pot of sour cream to dip the nachos in, which we almost finished up.


combo fajitas (chicken and beef) - RM18.90, check out the smoke

The place here reminds me a little of Chillis, as kids below 12 years old get to eat free (so there were loads of families eating here. Am not sure if any other terms apply though, as I didn't read the fine print) and they bring the tray next to your table when they serve your main meals.


grande chicken tacos (RM13.90+) - a little plain with fries but nice

I ordered the combo fajitas - a mix of chicken and beef strips that topped onions and sliced capsicums, which arrived sizzling hot that I even managed to capture the smoke arising from the hot plate. With it, they served three soft tortillas, sour cream, grated cheese and chopped tomatoes. We also ordered a side order of avocado. We had to pile the meat high on the tortillas since the platter had more than enough to go around.

Splashie Boy ordered the chicken tacos, which were also good - not dry and slightly juicy. His plate was a little plain though with just french fries with his taco. French fries weren't anything fantastic either. We both enjoyed our meal and definitely return to try more stuff again. Oh, they also do non-alchoholic margaritas here - a bit weird especially if you prefer the other version but it is still very refreshing, tangy and extremely pretty with the blue sugar coated glasses.

ahh... somebody's been eating/blogging hard..! reading about the margaritas makes me miss the Margaritas by the jug at casa guadalajara, old town san diego.. lotsa good mex food there. i love the drinks, and the chillie, but didn't really get into the bean and cheese thing... killer filling! so which is better, this place or the jaya one mexican? (coz mexican has to be really damn good, before we go eat it.. and we trust your taste, obviously;P)

boo_licious said...

worldwindows - after a few margaritas, these won't be tongue twisters anymore.

ciki - frontera has my bet, heard the margaritas are wicked too, but not sure if they can match up to the ones you had in USA.

They have a mini outlet in Ampang Jaya's PETRONAS Super Station before, but was closed... Not sure why...

Good thing about this place, you can get tex-mex foods at reasonable price... (don't compare to what Chili's offer pls...:))


I was told by my friend that the owner was a Chili's outlet manager before.

Will try this weekend... Yummy...

email2me said...

I am going there now! lol .... This Giant is a hell to go in during weekends. In the car park can jam for at least 20 minutes.

Didn't realize the restaurant serving such a good food. I always went there for Wendy's.

Rayhana said...

Hmm, wonder if you've tried this restaurant called "Caliente" same row as Kayu Nasi Kandar in Kota Damansara?

Mexican!

Dana said...

I went there! And gosh, the nachos, as well as the fajitas were very very good for the price they are charing. Thanks for the recommendation!

P/s: Go on a weekday, as it is almost impossible to get a parking on a weekend.
