India’s diversity is evident in all aspects whether it’s language, dressing, traditions or food. The same dish made in one state will differ vastly in the other as the spices used and the cooking style differs. Indians are big time foodies where the ladies used to spend a major part of their day in the kitchen. Now with nuclear families and both partners working they prefer to go out and eat especially during weekends spending some quality time together. This has motivated the restaurant industry to serve a variety of domestic as well as international cuisines and of late Mexican cuisine has become a favourite of many.

This is because it is very similar in preparations, taste and the use of spices to Indian cuisine. Unlike the continental or the American cuisines, Mexican foods are flavoursome and spicy, something that Indians love. Also, they have a lot of vegetarian options, which appeal to the vegetarian population of the country.

Let us see some of the restaurants in Rajouri garden that serve authentic Mexican food.
