6th May, 2017: Southern India's leading Tex-Mex chain ‘Habanero’ in Baga, recently celebrated the Mexican ‘Cinco De Mayo’ holiday, honouring a historic victory. With its special day-long menu and microbrews, Habanero cheered on a culture very similar to Goa, which is loved the world over. Habanero played host to a special menu that includes a salsa bar, taco bar and a special selection of desserts.
The Taco Bar featured a variety of the stuffed flour-shell snacks that everyone loves like Pork Carnitas, Cumin Roasted Chicken, Carne Asada and Chipotle fish in the non-vegetarian section and Spiced Potatoes and Grilled Vegetables in the vegetarian section. Even the sides were special on this day, with Spiced Black Bean Refritos and Lime or Cilantro Rice. There were even options in the dessert selection of the spicy-meets-sweet Ancho Chile Brownies, the doughnut-like Churros Nacho, Tres Leches (or three-milk) Cake and the Mango Mousse. A separate Salsa Bar offered a host of alternatives to the tomato-based side sauce that Mexico is known for. These include the Lime Crema, Chipotle Salsa, Salsa Fresca, Salsa Verde, Salsa Rojo, Mango-Habanero Salsa and the all-time favourite avocado-based Guacamole.
