Hola Ami­gos (Hello friends) Ma­macita Mex­i­can In­ter­na­tional Res­tau­rant and Bar has in­tro­duced a chef all the way from Mex­ico. Ser­gio Ed­uardo Fer­nan­dez Puente has taken on the im­mense task to pro­duce typ­i­cal Mex­i­can dishes iden­ti­cal to flavours from his home­land.

“There are about 300 dif­fer­ent chilies we use for the meals back home,” Mr Puente said.

He said the chilies added dif­fer­ent flavours that tan­ta­lised taste buds.

“A lot of the base of the food comes from corn, that’s pure tra­di­tional Mex­i­can del­i­ca­cies.” Ma­macita Mex­i­can Res­tau­rant and Bar is now op­er­at­ing at two lo­ca­tions in Fiji, Wyn­d­ham Va­ca­tion Re­sort, Nadi and in Damodar City, Suva.
