|Chef Fara in action|
A new Mexican cuisine-inspired food stall is making foodies crazy (in a good way) in Pasig City and at its helm is a chef who used to work for Nobu Manila. Co-owned by Chef Fara Pakdamanian, La Loca Mexican Cantina is not your ordinary taco and burrito nook. If anything, it serves a hefty tray of nachos that's a big hit with diners who love to share the treat over a bucket of beer. Ironically, the fiesta-style nachos can be had in a food court setting at Tiendesitas' Food Village in Brgy. Ugong.
In the middle of the large dining arena that transforms into a concert hall on special nights, the stall stands out for serving authentic quesadillas, tacos, nachos and burritos. It's easy to understand why foodies from nearby offices, exclusive villages, and locals from Brgy. Rosario love to linger in the large dining space. They simply appreciate the community atmosphere here.
|Rice Platter (Cajun Chicken)|
Chef Fara's take on the cuisine is pretty close to what's authentic in Mexico for having a mélange of distinct flavors from tangy, savory to a kick of spiciness (a level that any sweet-loving food Filipino can tolerate). It's Tex-Mex designed for the Pinoy palate.
I first dined at the original venue of La Loca Mexican Cantina at The Main Park, a relatively new food park at a secluded residential area of Pasig City. It was there where Chef Fara amazed me with his hefty and inventive taco bucket that could tame anybody's hunger pangs for hours.
All treats are available as Cajun Chicken and Pulled Beef options with the Quesadilla being available also as Cheese & Caramelized Onion in addition to the chicken and beef options.
For the stall's soft opening, customers can get a free bucket of six beer bottles for every order of the Pica Platter (Option 1: Overloaded Nachos; Option 2: Mix Platter of Chili Taquitos, Cheese & Onion Quesadillas and Nachos).
