Nestled in the heart of the city, Mehico Cantina & Bar on Ho Chi Minh Sarani has quickly become the talk of the town with its vibrant fusion of Mexican flair and Indian innovation. Housed within a historic 126-year-old building boasting a striking white facade adorned with arches and colonnades, Mehico offers an immersive experience that transports patrons to the streets of Mexico.

As guests step inside, they are greeted by the tantalizing aroma of freshly made tortillas emanating from the on-site tortilleria, setting the stage for an authentic culinary journey. The 1,900 sqft space is adorned with Oaxacan-inspired décor, featuring colorful murals and neon signs that add to the vibrant ambiance.

At the helm of Mehico’s beverage program is mixologist Manoj Singh Rawat, whose inventive cocktails have garnered widespread acclaim. Embracing a technique-forward approach, Manoj infuses classic Mexican libations with a touch of Indian ingenuity, elevating them to new heights.

In an exclusive statement, Manoj shares his vision for Mehico’s cocktail innovation: “Our goal at Mehico is to push the boundaries of mixology by crafting innovative and sustainable cocktails that reflect the essence of both Mexico and India. We take pride in creating our own syrups, garnishes, and infused liquors in-house, utilizing local ingredients and reducing waste wherever possible.”

One of Mehico’s standout creations is the Dona Perfecta, a tantalizing concoction that blends tequila with pink guava syrup, pomelo, and prickly pear shrub, resulting in a symphony of flavors that dance on the palate. Topped with a delicate guava macaroon made from the fruit’s skin and stems, this cocktail is as visually stunning as it is delicious.

Another crowd favorite is The Capitol, a tantalizing blend of tequila infused with Pequin Chillies, Cointreau, passionfruit syrup, jamun cider vinegar, and pear juice, finished with a splash of carbonated basil water and garnished with an edible wafer sheet. This cocktail strikes the perfect balance between sweetness, tartness, and spice, making it the ultimate companion for a night out.

For those craving a tropical escape, the Centro Paradiso offers a fiery yet refreshing experience. Combining cucumber, yuzu, pineapple ole sachharum, and jalapenos, this cocktail is a vibrant ode to the Yucatan Peninsula. Topped with cilantro foam, it’s a sensory delight that captures the essence of Mehico’s innovative spirit.

Last but not least, the Izamal Sunset beckons with its tantalising blend of rum distilled with jasmine tea, strawberries, and Aperol, finished with strawberry syrup and citric acid. This meticulously crafted libation showcases Mehico’s dedication to combining technique and flavor to create a truly unforgettable drinking experience.

Whether you’re savouring a classic Margarita or embarking on a culinary adventure with one of Mehico’s signature creations, every sip promises to transport you to a world of flavor and excitement.
