Mexican food is believed to be originated from Mayan Indians & when Spain invaded Mexico in 1521, they also left their prints on Mexican cuisine, introducing dairy products, garlic & many other herbs & spices. With time, assimilation of other cuisines like Caribbean, South American, & Portuguese was also seen which led to such diversity in Mexican cuisine.
Mc’s Fusion is one of those restaurants that had my attention even before they opened. They serve various cuisines like Mexican, Italian, & American. It’s situated on the main road at 12/2, Bairathi Colony, Near Sapna Sangeeta & hence not hard to find.
You can clearly see the effect of Mexican theme in the pictures hanged on the walls, colorful and of course the Cowboys, reflecting the spirit of the Mexico.
Ground floor – food court/cafeteria.
Second floor – to host parties/get together.
Third floor – Gaming section – including pool table & darts & comes with ON THE HOUSE DRINKS.
It’s a quick service restaurant and apart from their illuminated menu at the counter, you can also see the menu pamphlets on every table.
Let’s talk about FOOD guys! Here’s what I ate –
BURRITO BOWL & BURRITO WRAP –
The whole world is singing ‘pacito pacito’ in Despacito but I’m singing BURRITO BURRITO! Talk about priorities you guys, Haha!
Burrito bowl was the first thing that was served to us and I couldn’t stop hogging. Presentation gets full marks. The first thing my friend & Chef Amit Pamnani noticed was the use of black beans as it’s not available anywhere else currently in Indore. The owner wants to give it this dish a very authentic feel & he has succeeded. Burrito bowl had chicken that was well marinated and perfectly cooked & was kept on the side. It also had lettuce, basmati rice, tomatoes, onions, capsicum, & SOUR CREAM on top. I wrote sour cream in caps lock as it takes away all the attention. It was homemade and probably the best sour cream I’ve ever had.
A vegetarian variant of this dish is served with grilled Paneer instead of chicken.
Burrito Wrap –
I loved the bowl but Burrito Wrap was even better. It had the same ingredients in the bowl with the addition of cheese sauce and minus black beans. It was served with sour cream and salad on the side. Uff that sour cream! ❤️
CLASSIC QUESADILLAS –
This is probably the best thing I’ve tried here. It’s stuffed tortillas and was flatter when compared to the wrap. The mustard sauce has a very distinguished flavor. Top it up with Cheddar cheese & you’ve a winner. It’s not crispy, but rather soft and you can feel the love in every bite.
CLASSIC NACHOS GRANDE –
Anyway, talking about the dish, the nachos were made in their kitchen but somehow I didn’t find it extraordinary.
SALAD MEXICANA –
I’ve tried the non-vegetarian version of this dish it was lip smacking good. It’s perfect for health fanatics like I’m trying to be Haha. It had a generous amount of lettuce, zucchini, cherry tomatoes & topped with imported feta cheese. It also had some fajita seasoning, & lemon juice making it apt for chatoras like me.
MC’S MEXICAN STYLE NOODLES –
Although the name says Mexican style noodles, I found them to be like regular Hakka noodles with specially imported Mexican seasoning on top. It had chunks of chicken & I’ll just say that there are better options to try here than this one.
CLASSIC HOTDOG –
Served with French fries on the side, this was a delight. Chicken sausage, cheese sauce, mustard on top, with capsicum, with every bite I was asking for more! French fries were pressure fried and not deep fried and hence, comparatively a healthy option.
CHICKEN STRIPS AND CHICKEN WINGS –
Chicken wings and STRIPS are batter fried and served with a sauce that’s a perfect amalgamation of sweet and chili. The chicken was crisp from outside and tender on the inside. It’s served with tartar sauce on the side. Both were coated with the same batter, the only difference being wings had bones.
PASTA ITALIANO –
It amazes me to see how easily people go wrong with a basic recipe like white sauce pasta. AVOID. It had vegetables takes broccoli, carrots, and American corn. I like my pasta to be creamy and cheesy, hence this was a letdown.
Classic Salsa Sandwich –
It was okay. Nothing special about it. It’s the basic recipe with the tomatoes, bell peppers, onion & finely chopped green coriander.
Grilled Chicken Ham Sandwich –
I think it’s safe to say it was my favorite amongst the non-mexican items. The combination of smoked chicken ham with lettuce and fried eggs made a delicious snack. Ham wham baby!
Peri Peri Chicken Sandwich –
Peri Peri sauce is a part of Portuguese cuisine. Although I’m not a big fan, I can’t help but appreciate it’s hot & fiery flavors. With shredded chicken & peppers, this sandwich is worth a try.
LAMB BURGER –
Mc’s FUSION is a brainchild of Mr. Preetpal Singh who has resided in the USA for more than two decades and wanted to introduce authentic Mexican cuisine in Indore. In a short conversation with him, I could see the zest for food in him.
Timings – 11am to 11pm.
Recommendation – stick to Mexican cuisine & you’re good. Burrito, ham burger, quesadilla and salad are a must try here.
1. Location is easy to find.
2. Authentic Mexican cuisine.
3. Gaming zone provides free drinks.
4. Value for money.
5. A big range of delicacies available.
6. Lift as it has three floors.
7. Imported Mexican seasoning and black beans.
8. Every floor has a water counter.
1. Although Mexican food was a treat, pasta and noodles fails to impress.
2. Interiors are although interesting, there’s nothing extraordinary about it.
