There are not many Mexican Restaurant in the Klang Valley. We were honoured to be invited to review some of the current in-house favourites and also a few new dishes soon to be released offering of Frontera Sol Mexico @ Jaya One located at 18-G-2, Jaya One, 79A, Jalan Universiti 46200 Petaling Jaya.
Frontera Sol Mexico @ Jaya One was very well decorated to give you the Mexican feel. The bright orange colour wall exudes this warm feeling too.
Sitting on one of its corner is where sombrero (oversize Mexican) hats are put up to further set the mood for some hot peppery food that is usually enjoyed by Speedy Gonzales.
Tequila – The perfect partner to the Frontera Fiesta Platter.
To start our food review session, we had the starter i.e the Frontera Fiesta Platter – which is a four appetizer in one i.e. Stuffed Jalapeno, Taquitos De Pollo, Jalapeno Crab Cakes and Buffalo Wings which was a perfect combination for the matching with the Margaritas.
Stuffed Jalapeno – guaranteed dish to spice up some heat on one’s taste bud with the vinaigrette taste of the preserved hot Jalapeno.
The cut out of the Stuffed Jalapeno.
Taquitos De Pollo – Crispy Taquitos on a roll, with chicken stuffing, to be enjoyed with the salsa verde sauce dipping.
A closer look into the inside of the Taquitos De Pollo.
Buffalo Wing – Chicken wings served in either BBQ or Spicy Habanero coating with ranch dressing dips. One can taste that it is slightly sweet, a little sourish and at the same time, a little spicy, all at the same time.
Jalapeno Crab Cakes – The patties was laden with Crab meat, moulded in a cake and deep fried to golden brown. The patties have a distinctive taste of spiciness from the jalapeno and to be eaten when hot with your favourite drink like the Horny Margarita.
All the above appetizer can be ordered ala-carte individually.
Next, we had the Fajitas Con Pollo Asudo – Succulent grilled chicken served with red and green pepper, yellow onion, Jack Cheese, Salsa and Toasted Flour Tortilla.
To eat this, you spread a thin layer of the cream, add in the salsa and cheese onto the tortilla. Then you add a piece of grilled chicken and some onions, red and green peppers. Wrap it up and soon you will be able to enjoy this traditional Mexican dish.
Guacamole Bacon Burger – Rich Guacamole (avocado) paste with bacon and 100% home made beef patties. Perfect combination of the bacon with the juicy beef patties.
Super thick layer of patties that goes well with the Guacamole paste and melted cheese surrounding the entire meat patties.
Next, we had the opportunity to sample some of the yet to be available dishes for our comment. These dishes are not on the menu yet but you can probably check it out on your next visit if they do serves them in future.
Beef Stuffed Jalapeno – similar to stuffed jalapeno, but with the taste of minced beef stuffing.
Tacos In A Cone – Lamb – Nice offering without the strong gamey smell that are usually present in the meat of the lamb.
Combine with the crunchy and flaky taco, it was just the perfect balance with every biteful.
Tacos In A Cone – Fish – this taco is served with a crunchy deep fried fish fillet, instead of the mince lamb meat we had earlier. It is for those who prefer seafood in their taco instead of lamb or beef filling.
Deep Fried Squid – It looks good when served, but when eaten, it is a little of too much batter coating, making it less crispy. The management agreed to relook at this dish to find the right batter mix to further improved on it.
For those who do not know what to order. You can try the above.
Frontera Sol Mexico @ Jaya One is also very popular in serving tequilas and margaritas. Its most famous Margarita is the Horny Margarita.
The Horny Margarita (Sauza Hornitos Tequila) was very refreshing and smooth. With every sip of the sweet tequila, salt (from the rim of the glass) and the sourish taste of lime, you could taste the warmth of tequila flowing down the throat. Sip after sip you are able to enjoy the smooth agave taste of the tequila.
No wonder it was voted by Time Out KL as the Best Margarita in Kuala Lumpur.
Frontera Sol Mexico @ Jaya One also serves a wide variety of tequilas and hard liquors too. If you are a fan to these, you might want to check this place up.
