Short Description – in case u r in a hurry:

A relatively new entrant to Cyber Hub, Dos Burros made its presence felt by the choice of one of the best locations (if u enter from parking B) and then by creating an attractive façade. There is outdoor seating & also indoor ones.

The evening we were there, the cool outdoor seats were already gone. So we had to settle inside.

The good thing about our seat was that it was in front of the open kitchen – At times it can b pretty entertaining to get that seat, at the cost of being occasionally distracted from the discussion in the table.

The tables were plain wooden, colored. The chairs had the look of cane woven chairs.

'Mexican Chef' reads the embroidery on Chef's chest. I over heard him screaming at his boys in thet Hariyanvi!!!! :):)

The restaurant was busy – so at times the guy wud disappear for long periods of time & then to add on to an order / re-order something wud b endless waving sessions at quickly passing by servers – like Tom Hanks frantically waving at ships in the Movie Cast Away.

We moved on to Maple & Ginger glazed Salmon.  The ginger made its presence felt. Honey gave it mild sweetness but not much. Crisp outer layer of fish , flaky soft juicy inside. Outstanding. Flavours of fish fused well with flavours of add ons.

For dessert we chose Churros. These were very crispy, way more than the churros we have had several times at Olive. The two Dips were good but not great.
