For a long time, Chinese and American cuisines have largely ruled the taste buds of Dhakaites as their favourite international cuisines. But Dhaka is now warming up to the culinary marvels of the rest of the world and people are loving it. One such cuisine that has occupied the fancy of the food lovers is Mexican.
From Tortillas, Quesadillas, Enchiladas, Burritos, Nachos to Chimchangas, there's lots to explore. Founded by two young entrepreneurs, Bishaw Sazzad and Saif Rahman, Dos Locos is one such joint that serves authentic Mexican cuisines. Starting off with Chips with Guacamole (BDT 450) is an all time vegetarian’s delight. The buttery guacamole dip is made from fresh avocado sprinkled with a tangy seasoning served in a fried bowl of goodness with crispy chips showered in cheese and salsa.
For a loaded appetizer try out their El Bomba Nachos (BDT 300/395). These tex mex nachos are loaded to the max. Crispy chips enveloped with meat and veggies flooded with layers of funky cheddar cheese are delightfully delicious. The traditional Tacos (BDT 350/395/495) consist of taco shells filled with refried beans with a variety of fillings including vegetables, beef, chicken and shrimp.
Classic Mexican Quasedilla (BDT 300/325/395/400) filled with shredded cheese and fillings of meat are engulfed by freshly baked tortillas accompanied by iceberg lettuce with a dollop of sour cream and salsa. Among other starters Mexican Fiery Wings (BDT 395) is also worth trying. For lunch, Barbacoa Meal (BDT 395) and Steak Meal (BDT 525) are the favourites.
