Some of our expat friends took us to La Mexicana. We're new to KL and having someone's recommendation is very important to our selections.
La Mexicana was wonderful. From being greeted by the owner, to the guacamole dip and the food, everything was great. I'm used to the TexMex of Houston and the old expat fail-safe of Chili's. But, I won't be going back to Chili's when I know La Mexicana is there.
Our party shared jugs of tasty margaritas, the Carne a la Tampiquena steak, the special fish tacos, and the chicken fajitas. All were wonderful.
We had 3 kids with us and sat inside. The kids loved the food and the staff was very accommodating when my toddler fell asleep by offering to pull out cushions to allow her to nap (Dad enjoyed having a full lap, however.) The only demerit I gave was for "kid friendliness" and that is simply a function of most of the seating being outdoors. We had made a reservation for inside, so it worked well for us. But, if you had to sit outdoors at night, kids might not fair as well due to mosquitos. Just be sure to make a reservation for inside if you want that luxury.
Overall, I can't wait to get back for a second helping of La Mexicana!
