Wils and ronnycakes reviews: Frontera Sol of Mexico: Ramadhan Buffet, Jaya One

The time for fasting has rolled around again and this means endless Ramadhan buffets throughout the whole month that not only entice our Muslim counterparts but also the non-fasting among us! What’s most important for breaking fast is of course something delicious to look forward to after a long day, and that’s where Frontera Sol of Mexico comes in with it’s offering of Mexican Tex-Mex food.

We were incredibly fortunate to be invited by Chop Chop for an early preview of Frontera’s Ramadhan spread, so thanks to Chop Chop for the invite!

No-one can deny that Frontera offers a sumptuous spread, just take a look at their extensive buffet menu!

Beginning from 6.30pm for RM50++ per pax, you get to eat to your heart’s delight with 12 starters to choose from (buffet style so pile it on those plates!) as well as any main course you want from the list. After that, you can satisfy your sweet tooth by indulging on the wide range of desserts they serve.

Left: Chicken Taquitos de Pollo, a blend of lettuce, tomato, onion, grated cheese and lightly grilled chicken meat all wrapped up in tortilla skins.
Right: Fish Taquitos de Pollo, similar ingredients but wraps up a deep fried fish fillet instead.

Soup was free flow, an offering of chipotle mushroom soup which was spicy and tangy. On the right is Mushroom and Cheese Bruschetta; crunchy and savoury.

BBQ Wings with a tinge of spiciness and had a delicious smoky flavour.

Crispy Tortilla Chips and Bacon Bits, deep-fried to crunchy perfection.

Love the fact that it’s free flow and all for the taking. Almost everything is delicious too!

On to the main courses! I had the Spicy Prawn Diablo which came with a side of grilled vegetables: zucchini and onions. Portion was quite generous with five or six large prawns. We were told by the waitress that the diablo would be incredibly spicy but even for someone like me (low spice tolerance alert) it wasn’t very spicy at all. Anyway, it still tasted delicious and would have gone great with the Mexican Rice offered in the buffet spread.

Wils had the Maple Glazed Salmon. The portion of salmon served was quite big, and the fish was very fresh with no trace of fishiness. It tasted slightly spicy and you could really taste the maple syrup all over the fish, which was controlled very well and no overdose of maple-ness at all.

Tres Leche Cake which we hear is saturated in milk. A little too creamy and sweet for our liking especially after a heavy meal.

Brownies were pretty good, not too sweet and had a nice crispy top.

Fruit Popsicles which were cubes of fruit in sugar. The owner let us know that it was supposed to be frozen (hence popsicles) but they couldn’t do it in time. We felt this was a little too sweet and sticky as well.

Mexican Flan which was the best dessert of the night. We could taste the aroma of burnt caramel; hands down the one that you should go for when having the Ramadhan Buffet at Frontera.

Fiesta de Fruita; grapes and a variety of fruits coated with condensed milk, an extremely sinful dessert!

However, a few gripes we had would be that air-conditioning wasn’t cool enough and both me and Wils sweated profusely throughout our meal, and that sugar was a bit heavy-handed in the desserts especially after you’re all that cheesy and meaty food.

All in all, it was a great dining experience with a huge variety of food to choose from. For RM50++ per pax, it’s a bang for your buck. Frontera doesn’t hold back on portion and doesn’t compromise freshness for price. So head over to Frontera this Ramadhan for a truly satisfying and value-for-money meal that won’t disappoint.
