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.
The walls were very cool & had nice picture frames & other interesting displays.
The ceiling had interplay of colors made from colorful strings
Drawers had spoon shaped handles
Loved the drink menu cover
The menu card was clearly divided by sections, had the original Mexican name & then explanation of the dish in simple English.
Service was good. The guy who served us took care.
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.
Food was very good in general.
Detailed Description – In case u have the Time to NJOY reading:
We started with Super crisp and thin nachos – outstanding I must say. Remembered my lovely meal at Mi Amigo’s Arizona, USA. Tasty, perfectly crisp, excellent texture. Rate it 4.5/5
The salsa served with nachos was excellent as well. Made from Tomato but not tomatoeeee. Rate it 4.25/5
The next dish we had was Bocadito – tacos, filled with creamy red chilly sauce, cabbage, pico degallo & Mutton mince.
Loved every bit of it. Crisp tacos – one of the best I have had in Gurgaon so far.
The other fillings made their presence felt. Minced mutton had great flavors of meat & was tasty as well. Loved this dish a lot & rate it 4.25/5
We also ordered Tiraditos – Cuban styles ceviches.It had Salmon, seabass, Limon cello, Mango, red onion, Chilly Tiger’s milk. In short , raw Fish & other ingredients in a cocktail glass.
We super loved it. Flavors of the seafood were abundant & the other ingredients made their presence felt as well. Rate it 4.5/5. A word of caution – not everyone Wud like it. Chances that u will appreciate it – if u like sushi, sashimi etc.
We ordered for Watermelon goat cheese salad wild arugula leaf. It had fresh watermelon, goat cheese with aragula & peanuts finished with balsamic reduction.
Liked the salad very much, specially the bites with goat cheese. Crunchy leaves, less seed watermelon, crunchy peanuts etc..Rate it 4.5/5
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.
The Potato mash served with the fish was awesome . Perfect to taste, super texture.
Super loved the Brown sauce as well.
Drooling as I write this. Rate it 4.75/5
The next dish we had was Enchiladas de pato – It was Corn Tortilla rolled with roasted duck & black bean, habanero sauce. The Duck was very nice – Perfectly soft, juicy and a bit chewy. Rate the duck 4.5/5
The enchilada was good but not outstanding. Rate the enchilada 3/5.
Overall rating of the dish averages out to 3.75/5
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.
I like the Churros at Olive better coz they balance well the crispness of outside with the moisture inside. Rate the dish 4/5
Last dish for the evening was Classic Mexican flan. It was excellent. Tight, daanedaar at the bottom, soft, nice. Tasty. Rate it 4.5/5
For drink we tried Slushee Margarita – Green apple , peach, water melon, rose, lime etc mocktail. It was good but not great. Rate it 3/5
El Rey Margarita Pure Blue Agave of Corralejo blanco soured with fresh lime & embellished by sweetness of Grand Marnier. This one was robust in taste & we loved the mix. Rate it 4/5
El Bebe Margarita – small sized Margarita was also very good. Rate it 4/5
Overall rating of food & beverages at Dos Burros averages out to 4.2/5. I wud surely go back here to try out more things. Look forward to hearing ur experience.
