Habanero fills the gap of being Hyderabad’s first authentic upscale Tex-Mex restaurant that has opened its doors in the IT hub of Hitech city. Was invited for the grand opening fiesta which was a lively meet with foodies savoring the aromatic flavors of Mexican food, soaking in the rustic Mexico inspired interiors and dancing the night away to the rhythms of renowned Latin percussionist from Columbia, Viviana Gonzales and guitarist, John Fernandes from Goa.

The menu at Habanero features hearty vegetarian and non-vegetarian fare such as fajitas, burritos, quesadillas and tenderloin which can be accompanied with their signature tamarind & seasonal fruits margaritas that go perfectly well with the cuisine. I started my hedonistic journey with their signature tamarind margarita that just blew my mind off; it had the tangy taste of tamarind nectar and spicy, salt crusted rim that complimented each other quite well.

Loved it ! The classic pomegranate margarita martini was the next to follow that had perfect concoction of both flavors. The humble Red wine sangria that followed well dint really go well Four seasons wine, would’ve loved it to be a little more sweetened, but nevertheless it was decent.

The Jalapeno poppers were highly recommended by quite a few friends of mine from Bengaluru and true to my expectations this one was good inspite of being an offseason for jalapenos. The Jalapeno peppers stuffed with a mixture of melted cheese breaded ovals were too good.

Topped with beans, lettuce, tomatoes, grilled pineapple and cheese along with honey mustard vinaigrette dressing, they were soft, crisp and brilliant. From the mains, the Eggplant & Black bean Stack was the first, it had a distinct combination of brinjal, black bean, tomato sauce and grated cheese.

Was never a fan of desserts at any of the Tex Mex places, and Habanero took me by surprise with its offerings. The Churros with hot chocolate sauce was the star among them all, doughnut sticks rolled in cinnamon sugar with a dark chocolate sauce couldn’t have been better.

The Caramel Cheesecake was exactly per my liking, I have always been a fan of Philadelphia over mascarpone and this one dolloped with loads of caramel was super good ! Couldn’t savor, the Chocolate crumble cake and Tres Leches cake but that something I would definitely try the next time.
