Fresca Mexican Kitchen and Bar, The Gardens Mall Mid Valley City
Speaking about Mexican food, to find one which fully dedicated to it will be kinda limited in KL. Most of them were mixed with Texas Mexican combination like Chilis and TGI Friday. Some more they localise the taste to suit local taste that most of them demand to have it adjusted. To me as a foodie I am kinda fussy about my foods. If you are opening a restaurant with a dedication to traditional recipe and cooking methods, you’ll have my attention on it. Latest Mexican restaurant opening in town is Fresca Mexican Kitchen & Bar located at The Gardens Mid Valley City.
Fresca means “fresh” or “cool” in Spanish, the official language of Mexico. The food served here are fresh and prepared with the finest ingredients which some of them were imported to ensure the authentic quality and taste.
The restaurant open to target mainly all range of customers be it family dining to corporate customers. There are a lot of expats who loves to chill out after office hour hitting the bar for a couple of mugs.
