Christmas is that time of the year, when all we want to do is have a hearty meal and a hearty laugh. Every year chefs across the globe prepare special menus, some traditional and some innovative, but all served with warmth and love. Tagging along in the festive spirit, me and my team bid adieu 2013 with a Mexican Christmas spread. Situated amidst the hustle bustle of the Connaught circle, this place promises to transport you to a Mexican hub. Wooden flooring, saddle chairs, country music, warm ambiance and an equally warm staff. Oh! Did I tell you that the staff dresses up like cowboys? Yeah, with those leather boots and Stetson hats. Taco dips Chicken Tikkas Freshly baked Nachos with kitchen grounded Salsa Crisp toast basket  Live pasta counter Roasted turkey with cranberry sauce Although this place serves liquor, but this place is family friendly too. In fact, during my own visit I saw a whole bunch of kids celebrating their friend’s birthday, an elderly couple relishing the Christmas buffet, to a semi – goth youngster enjoying a beer. This place welcomes all!  Strawberry Mousse Plum pudding with custard sauce   Lemon Tarts Apple Crumble The Christmas buffet was again custom designed to please the Indian platter. What I really liked about the platter was that, it was a well thought combination of Mexican, Continental and Indian cuisines; perfected for the occasion. My Verdict : Ambiance : 4.5/5 Food : 4/5 Service : 4.5/5 Value for Money : 3.5/5 Check them out : Rodeo A 12, Inner Circle, Connaught Place, New Delhi
