Fresca Mexican Kitchen & Bar @ The Gardens, KL

Being a great fan of Mexican food, I literally dragged JS to The Gardens when I learned of the existence of a new Mexican restaurant. It definitely looks more upscale than Frontera so expect the price to be on the higher side too.
Rustic decor
Fresca is located at the central part of the lobby, across Han Room, and I would think it is quite a secluded location because people hardly venture to that part of the mall.
Love the blue tiles!
Simple setting
I find the hexagonal glasses quite unique, don't you agree?
Chicken and Onion Quesadillas (RM 28)
To be honest, the Chicken and Onion Quesadillas was nothing to shout about. The filling was not as much as we expected and they were really just average-tasting. It came with tomato salsa, refried beans and guacamole. The refried beans was alright but I much prefer the texture of those by Frontera. I love the salsa but it's such a shame Fresca does not provide refills. The guacamole was tasteless but I'm not sure if it's supposed to taste like that?
Tacos Alambre (RM 18)
The Tacos Alambre with roast beef shreds and crispy bacon drizzled with sour cream was really good. The spicy poblano chiles added a good kick to the overall flavour.
Tacos Ensenada (RM 19)
The Tacos Ensenada is highly recommended. Warm but soft tortilla enveloping a fried beer-battered fish and topped with creamy coleslaw, the combination is just perfect. The warm crunchy fish and cold coleslaw complement each other really well. The black sticky piquant sauce next to it enhanced the overall flavour - unfortunately I could not make out what it is made from.
Both the Tacos Alambre and Tacos Ensenada come in sets of three but if you think that it can be a meal on its own, think again. The tacos are quite small in size - the teaspoon itself is smaller than usual. Guys with larger mouths can probably pop the entire taco in and most people can probably finish it in 3 bites.
Fresca is a nice place to chill after a long hard day's work but the portions are comparatively smaller for the price listed. I for one, doubt I will return unless some friend begs to try the fare here.
