Mexican Ghabga

My very kind friends Rakan & Mai invited me, along with few more friends, for a Ghabga at their house last weekend 😉 We were told that the theme for the night was Mexican – So yeah… I accepted with a BIG smile on my face…. ¡Ándale! ¡Ándale!

To begin with we munched on nachos with four different dipping sauces… guacamole, sour cream, spicy salsa, and mild salsa… sadly I have no pictures of that :-S But I have few pictures to share of the real food 😉 -Purg will be happy-

Rakan & Mai ordered from Sahuaro, a Mexican Cuisine catering service in Kuwait – I must say it must be the “healthiest” Mexican food I have ever tried! -Fahad K will be happy –

Anyways… here are the tacos (meat, chicken, and vegetarian)

And burritos with a side of guacamole

Chimichangas and Flautas

In addition to a Mexican salad made by  Toomzie 😉

And Quesadillas made by truly yours 😉 (recipe) with my very own guacamole and salsa too 😉

Now the food… It was light as feather! I LOVED their sour cream! It was the best I have tried in town. Their Chimichangas were so good and light, I had two 😛

I did not feel stuffed and heavy after I ate, which isnt usual after having a Mexican feast…. and for that I had extra empty space for desserts!!!

So lets see.. the desserts were from all over! To begin with, the chips-like ones were from Sahuaro and they’re called Bunuelos! They are actually cinnamon & sugar coated flakes – I loved’em! But what I loved even more (more more) was the Alaska Cake from AlAalamiya! Rakan!!! You brought back many childhood memories!!! I just ordered one for tonight while preparing this post!! LOL

The rest of the desserts were brought in from different places – I couldnt keep track – sowwy – 😛

  12. 3laikom bil 3afya .. i really loved this post .. the idea about having mexican ‘3abga and still feels light was really awesome !

  13. No refried beans?

  14. the guac with the quesadillas looks like a real version. the guac with the burritos looks like a sissy version of the mexican classic. dunno but seems it might be mixed with some sour cream or yogurt!! what a travesty if so.

  15. Ansam, your quesadillas look awesome. (Quesadillas are one of my favorites!) When you say Alaska cake, what is that? Is it Baked Alaska, a meringue cake?

    Is Purg still blogging?

    • Thanks 😀
      Its an ice cream cake covered with marshmallow-y kinda frosting (maybe meringue)

      I dont know if he still is to be honest, but he drops by every now and then
