What we say: 4 stars

Suffering a taco and margarita craving? Las Carretas serves up a range of traditional Mexican fare in a lively, colourful and casual atmosphere.

Apart from the usual quesadillas and chimichangas, which are well executed here, Las Carretas offers some surprises like an original South American lamb stew called estofado de cordero, and even their own take on fois gras.

The more typical dishes run under 30 ringgit, while a "millionare margarita", which blends top end tequila with Grand Marnier, will set you back 42 ringgit. Don't worry -- they serve cheaper varieties too, including pitchers of Jose Cuervo margaritas for letting loose with friends.

Look for the restaurant's unassuming entrance on the right if heading towards Jalan Duta from Jalan Semantan.
