Spoil your urge for authentic tacos - tortilla shells laden with beans, seasoned ground beef, lettuce, cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, garnished with pico de gallo and olives. For the meat lovers, delight in juicy cerdo asado made from grilled and marinated pork belly with a cheese enchilada, beans, rice and steamed vegetables. Forget not the famous Mexican burrito destined to take the spotlight and fill you up. Top off the meal with desserts such as baked flan, sopapilla tarte de quezo and churros.
An authentic Mexican food quest would not be complete without a Mariachi band so they have been invited to perform live during the dinner buffet on September 16. Allow their music to lead you to a journey through the history and traditions of Mexico.
Spice up the evening some more and have a glass or two of tequila. Explore unique flavors and enjoy variations of tequila and other tangy cocktails. Opt to set a lighter mood by sipping a bottle of Corona over good conversation and a zesty Mexican pica pica.
As a special treat, Mexican nationals and Mexican embassy employees are entitled to a discount at the dinner buffet. The Food Festival is in partnership with the Embassy of Mexico.
