I got an opportunity to meet chef Dan Durkin and taste his recipes! Cuisine
The menu is experimental and bold, full of rich, spicy flavors that characterize Tex-Mex cuisine. The dishes are inspired by various parts of Mexico and the bordering American region.
The First thing we saw was a person dressed in Mexican style bringing us a live counter of freshly made Guacamole right in front of us. The menu card also has some interesting facts about the origin of Guacamole and other dishes too.
Guacamole and chips which is a perfect creamy combination of avocados, garlic and cilantro made fresh at the table, upon request and served with warm homemade chips.
Healthy and pure veg: sweet red capsicum stued with paneer and rice and served straight from the oven.
Tres Leches cake :This is a lovely looking desert made with milk and served with milk which has to be poured on the cake while eating. A butter cake soaked in different types of milk and garnished with fruit.
Simply summed up, Habanero is a little piece of Mexico, right within Bangalore. With brightly painted interiors that lend a cheerful and cozy ambience, it’s an ideal place for people to have loads of fun over drinks and authentic Tex-Mex food.
Location: Conveniently located in three central locations in Bangalore -– Whitefield, Indiranagar and Koramangala -- the restaurant’s proximity to companies as well as residential areas make it an ideal spot for business lunches and celebratory gatherings.
