Frontera, Jaya One

A post that should be up long time ago- but the procrastinator in me just refused to budge- until now :D
Andrew suggested for us to meet at Frontera for makan session and also to celebrate Elaine's BD..Since I dont need to crack my head for suggesting a place to eat- I agreed on the suggestion immediately..hehe
Had a variety of stuff to try..
Top shelf guacamole (RM22.95)
Served with nachos, the guacamole dip's actually pretty addictive. Portion's quite small for that price though.
Frontera Nachos Chicken (RM26.95)
Based was crisp, topped with a nice thick layer of melted cheese and chopped chicken. Quite nice.
Taquitos de Pollo (RM19.95)
Served piping hot, this was a popular dish. The tortillas were extremely crunchy and very hot; goes wonderfully with the spicy eggplant base dip. But there were only 6-7 cigar sized taquitos- rather costly for the portion I'd say.
Chicken ranch salad (RM18.95)
Familiar tasting and looking- was glad that the greens were fresh, and the fried chicken- tender meat and crunchy batter.
We ordered the beef burrito (and also chicken)- RM22.95
The burrito was quite huge and topped with a nice dose of melted cheese. The filling was generous, I prefer the beef version though as the flavours were stronger :p. LH enjoyed the rice, he said the texture and taste were good.
The BBQ Pineapple Chicken (RM26.95)
This was definitely a miss. The chicken was dry and rather tasteless, the accompanying sides were just average.
The Fajita Platters combo (RM33.95)
Thick slices of beef, chicken, onions and capsicums served on hot skillet. Wrap it with warm tortillas, this was satisfying as the ingredients was fresh. Scrumptious.
Our final dish, Frontera BBQ Beef Ribs (RM49.95)
Extremely fork tender beef, very well marinated and smothered with their very spicy sauce. Well, one bite it's ok, but the more you eat, the spicier it gets. Very tasty nonetheless.
Overall, most hits than misses, well, at least you know there's more than just Chilli's,TGIF and Las Carretas for tex-mex food :)
Frontera Bar & Grill is located at 18-G-2, Block L, Jaya One, No 72A, Jalan Universiti, 46200 PJ.

The Mexican food served here looks very authentic but don't you think that it's a bit pricey...

As a Texan I was excited to find a place like this in Malaysia. The food is laughable though. Whoever designed the menu and put together the ingredients has no idea what they are doing. The only place this restaurant could ever make it is in a country that doesn't have much experience with Mexican food.

anon: yes, you are right. ignorance is bliss and in this case, not many in Msia would know how an authentic mexican meal would really taste like. the only thing we can judge upon would be if the food is acceptable to our palette, if the flavours are pleasing and if we enjoyed it or not. but to truely say that this is a mexican cuisine, I cant vouch since i've not travelled to mexico before.

Thanks for the post.

Reading a lot of concern about our pricing here.

Unfortunately, we use a lot of fresh/imported produce. E.g. two fresh avocados goes into eat bowl of guacamole. Each avocado is RM4 to RM5, not include other ingredients. :)

Unlike many other restaurants, we dont use avocado puree or canned avocado.
