At first glance, the prices seem really steep. With the Fajitas coming in at $95 and the 1.2kg Nixtahawk priced at a whopping $185. We were expecting to spend a bomb here but we were in for a pleasant surprise when the bill arrived.
We started off with the Guacamole Nixta($20) which is accompanied by quite a healthy helping of crunchy chips. It's hard to go wrong with guacamole, and Nixta's version is jazzed up with Feta cheese. We thought that the guacamole was well-seasoned, and just about the perfect way to kickstart our meal.
The server recommend the Tlayuda de la Casa($20), essentially a Mexican pizza topped with roasted corn, fresh Mexican cheese and aromatic herbs. You can add on Maine lobster meat for $20 but we didn't go for it. The roasted corn pizza was an absolute delight to tuck into. The corn was sweet, and it went hand in hand with the gooey melted cheese. The flavours of both the star ingredients were pronounced but not overshadowed by the other, and the crisp and light base was just the icing on the cake. A dash of lime just made it even more delicious. Our party of 5 enjoyed this very much.
We decided to order the Nixta Signature Spit & Herb-Roasted Chicken($65) which was a 1.4kg beauty that's tender, juicy, and incredibly filling. The well-executed chicken was easy to cut into, and I like how flavourful it was, and the little explosions of juices hidden within the meat. Unfortunately, some parts of the chicken skin was more roasted and crispy than others, and that's probably my only gripe (because I got the part with pale skin that wasn't as flavourful and crisp).I actually preferred the chicken to the pork, which is very rare for me since I don't even fancy chicken. I would actually never order a chicken dish in a restaurant, but this was pretty good. The chicken is good for 4-6 pax so make sure you bring your pals along for this!
It's the first time that I didn't pick a beef dish. I would always order beef but it wasn't so convenient for our dining group that day. But I will definitely be back to give the Fajitas and Nixtahawk a go someday! The final bill was just $203 and we were all stuffed to the brim. Even considering the fact that we didn't go for the big ticket items, I wasn't expecting to spend less than $60 per pax so I would say it's surprisingly affordable. given the standard and portion.
Service was pretty good, and we liked that the servers took time to briefly run through the dishes whenever they were served.
