Mercado, Wisma Central

Most Mexican restaurants in Malaysia serve soft tacos, so it's a treat to uncover Mercado, which offers tacos in traditional corn tortilla shells, still fairly crisp after a fast delivery from its new restaurant base in Wisma Central, a short stroll from KLCC.

Mercado lets you completely customise these tacos, from the meat to veggies to sauces - our best bet is grilled beef or chicken, tender and tasty, with pico de gallo, fresh jalapeƱos and shredded lettuce, jazzed up generously with salsa roja for tangy, spicy, lively flavours.

The familiar crowd-pleasers are available, from burritos bursting with beef, rice and refried beans to thickly textured chili con carne, hot and hearty, to guacamole, piquantly, pleasurably chilled and creamy.
