Mad Mex, KLCC

February 18, 2020

Mad Mex, the Sydney-based chain of Mexican fast-food restaurants, rolls into the Thunderdome of Suria KLCC with its first Malaysian outpost, serving up customisable burritos and tacos with a focus on fresh, wholesome ingredients with authentic Mexican chillies and chipotles.

First, choose your preparation - burritos, naked burritos (without the tortilla wrap, for carb watchers), tacos (with soft flour or gluten-free soft corn tortillas), quesadillas, nachos or salads. Then pick your filling - grilled chicken, tofu, or slow-cooked beef. Finally, select a spice level for your salsa - mild with roasted tomatoes, medium with salsa verde, spicy with picante habanero.

Prices start at RM7.90 for a single taco and RM17.90 for a 'small' burrito that should be sufficient for most folks' lunch. Each burrito and taco is plumply packed with brown rice, black beans, pico de gallo, cheese, shredded lettuce and sour cream, and an add-on of guacamole is also available.

Our favourite filling is the barbacoa-style pulled beef - beautifully juicy, richly flavoursome with a chipotle marinade. Don't fear the spices - even the most fiery level is fairly tame for Malaysian palates. But what makes these burritos and tacos work is their sink-your-teeth-into-this succulence, with an abundance of ingredients that genuinely taste like real, honest food, seasoned in lively fashion - a vibrantly textured testament to Mad Mex's success with more than 70 branches in Australia and New Zealand.
