Fancy a filling burrito on the go? Or craving a Tex Mex sizzler packed with flavor as well as goodness? Head for Twisted Tacos. After satiating hordes of Delhites, this Mexican eatery has just hustled on over to Gurgaon.
We stumbled upon this gem in Cross Point Mall, and given the fact that Gurgaon
doesn’t have many Mexican eateries, this one is a Super Duper Hit already! Hey, but that’s not the only reason we fell in ‘love at first bite’ with it!
Love at First Bite
Twisted Tacos is on a mission to feed a combination of authentic and fusion Mexican to the people of Gurgaon. It lives true to its name and how! The menu includes the most celebrated Mexican fare such as tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, burritos, and rice bowl along with nachos, dips etc., albeit with interesting twists and tweaks!
Started by two buddies, Sawan, who takes care of marketing of the brand and Onil, who brings on the table (quite literally!) his culinary expertise as a result of having lived for 6 years in the U.S, Twisted Tacos brings forth the similarities between Mexican and Indian cuisine, in more ways than one! While it retains the ‘Mexican’ taste of the food, it uses local produce such as Rajma instead of pinto beans, Basmati rice in place of the fluffy counterpart, so as to get the taste appealing to the Indian palate, without compromising on the flavor. And all well traveled, die hard authentic Mexican food freaks, let us assure you that the ingredients are used rather skilfully, and just do not come in way of the taste and zest!
Mexican Grub At Its Most Wholesome! Wow!
Further to this, they have a non negotiable policy of using nothing that is processed. Most of the things, right from their tacos, burritos, fajitas to the salsa and signature hot sauce (their answer to Tabasco) are prepared in house and hence, is fresh as could be. Even the proteins are freshly procured and done right on the grill. Nachos are made out of sweet corn, crunchy tacos prepared with corn (gluten free) and soft ones with whole wheat. The delectable grub, the use of healthiest freshest ingredients, the vast array of dishes which are basically a culmination of the owner’s various travels and life’s experiences, the owners’ personal involvement and attention to detail make for a really pleasant and memorable experience.
A go-to place for the indulgent lot as well as the fitness buffs (what with the cheesy goodies and array of salads), hard core non vegetarians and vegetarians alike.
The place has a quaint, laid back feel to it, and the bright, cheery instantly enliven your senses. The creative Twisted Tacos mascot adds a touch of whimsy to the place and is infact something we couldn’t get our eyes off. The place has a good enough seating capacity. And Hurray! For they home deliver!
What Did We Have?
We started with a Crunchy Pulled Pork Taco, something, that we were told, is the closest to what one would get in Mexico. The source of pork is upmarket and reliable.
The 7 layered Burrito is a 7 course meal in itself (in terms of quanity!), and Chipotle Chicken is what we had. Succulent chicken, spicy rice, lettuce, tomato, beans, corn….. and a burst of flavours.
We had a Cottage Cheese Sizzler, which was loaded with veggies and just perfect! The signature hot sauce, a great companion to this one! The vegetarian in our group loved it.
For drinks, we had a Lemon Nana (a refreshing mojito of sorts) and a Brownie Nutella Shake. Both lovely soothers!
The churros in the dessert section get brownie points! Cinnamon and sugar dusted, these divine Spanish sweet treats were gobbled up within minutes. And we’re still drooling!
Mexican food in its healthy, wholesome, fresh, ‘no fuss-but-fusion’, delectable avatar! Need we say more!
