This is another place that I stumbled upon by accident. I was looking for a place that accepted online orders and payment for home delivery orders, when I came across HOLA Mexicana. I enjoyed their food so much, that I ended up ordering at least once every week for some time. Soon it dawned upon me that while I have had their yummy food many times, I haven’t actually been there even once. I made up my mind to go there over the weekend.
HOLA Mexicana is quaint little place nestled in a building complex Fatehganj, Baroda. Their banner is well lit, so that you don’t miss it. The only catch is that you can easily park a two wheeler, but a car will need some efforts.
They have a warm looking interior, which can easily manage 20 or so patrons. One of the plus points is that they have A/C and wifi, so it makes spending the hot noons or evenings easy.
One of my regular orders over here is their mexican rice. While they offer both veg and non veg options, I like to go with the chicken version. It is a fabulous combination of rice, sauces, spices, tanginess, vegetables, beans, shredded chicken (since I go for the non veg version) and cheese. I have had it almost everytime I have ordered from them, and I still enjoy it each and every time.
This is what the bowl of mexican rice looks like when you receive it.
I like to give it a nice mix, before diving in.
Not one to get satisfied with just one bowl of rice, I order something else to go with it. This time I ended up with one of their omelettes.
They make a nice fluffy omelette that has stuffing inside the fold. Mine had chicken, vegges, spices and cheese. Needless to say it was absolutely delicious.
What is even better about the place is that in spite of serving such delicious food, and giving you a warm and comfortable ambience, they are easy on the wallet. Here’s a snapshot of their menu
This is hands down, one of my favorite places in Baroda to have mexican food. I will leave you with a picture of the HOLA Mexicana team who were happy to pose for a pic for me.

Mexican cuisine is a bit like Indian cuisine. Spicy! I had enjoyed it when I had it several years ago. 🙂
Am very picky when it comes to food and cuisines…haven’t tasted Mexican yet. 😛
After reading your post early in the morning, I’m ravenous!
With good food, inviting ambience, AC, WiFi and, last but not least, easy on the wallet, what else can one ask for? 🙂
Though I already hate you to put up food related posts day after day but I was equally eager to see the pics in this one, for some reason images from this post are not visible to me. Will try again !

I must confess that I was surprised to find Mexican food on offer in India, but it looks as good as any I have eaten elsewhere.

There has been a huge influx of Mexican and Italian over the last three years. Most of them are ‘indianised’ to cater to the common population, but some of them (like this one ) are real good
