Anyone wants to have a Mexican Thyme party head to OLD WILD WEST.
Chef Sundeep Mehrolia (Ex. Hard Rock Cafe/Trained under none other then the MasterChef Hemant Oberoi) has done a good job in setting up the Menu which has most of the Tex-Mex dishes and a very few Italian dishes but with a Mexican Flavour.
Young Owners (4). One of them an MBA graduate Alok Rathod.
A casual discussion about the concept and from this talks came to know Old wild West are having some good events lined up over the next couple of months.
Lets start with the Cocktails :
Mexico and its Margaritas –
Started with the Strawberry Basil Margarita ( Berries/Tequila/Basil and a dash of Margarita mix) Strong and Good.
Basil Cucumber Martini – Wow this was awesome a must try.
Mexican Lindo – This is their Signature Cocktail and IT WAS !! Good Portion of Tequila, Blue Curacao, Dash of sweet lemon.
Palamo – Tequila Gold , Grapefruit ( good)
Stick to basics , when in Mexico its always Tequila and you can’t go wrong.
And if you have a good Bar Chef (Amey – Ex Hard Rock Cafe) what more do you want. Good Work.
Done with the beverages in between ordered :
Texas Veg Toastada – Thin crust Mexican tortilla BBQ marinated Cottage cheese, Monterey Jack cheese , Guacamole and sour cream. (Basically like a pizza) Had that Smokey flavour. First Bite and personally found the marination a bit sweet.
Gradually liked the taste. I still feel why cottage Cheese. Overall satisfied.
Tex Mex Chicken Skewers – Juicy marinated chicken grilled with home made ranch dip. Now this is a MUST TRY dish . Full marks
Roasted Mediterranean Veg Panini – The word Panini and it takes you to Italy.
The chef has done a great job with this dish . Has kept the Italian touch but added the Mexican Flavours in the Veggies . Again Full marks to this dish. MUST ORDER. The Panini Bread was soft and fresh , perfectly Grilled. French Fries well done (No Oil) and the classic pesto meyo blended well with the veggies. WOW factor for sure.
Chicken Quesadilla – This WAS SPICY WOW .. this is what Mexican food is all about. Perfect.
Marinated Chicken cooked folded with beans mix ( beans were well done) Shredded Cheese and Flour tortilla toasted to perfection served with a generous portion of Sour cream and gualamole and pico.
You guys have nailed this dish for sure and i would definitely be coming again for this one. MUST TRY.
Time for Dessert : After having all this ? No way . Had to skip but i hear the Tiramisu is a must try . So next time it is for sure.
Overall experience- Very good . Highly recommend this place.
Service was good (Swachit) was the Server , Thanks ( i hope i got the name correct after all those Tequila Cocktails)
A question to the chef – Why is there to dish containing rice ?
and Some Hot sauces.

All the Best.
