We can say globalization is well and truly here with so many restaurants making different international cuisines and serving them not just in the metros but also in other cities in India. Gujaratis have always been world travellers but their food choices have been conservative but in recent years that has changed. The people of Ahmedabad have taken to many global cuisines with such fervour that there are hundreds of restaurants serving Italian and Chinese cuisines and more recently Mexican and Thai cuisine also. Nachos, Tacos and Enchiladas are being regularly featured in the menu of restaurants in Ahmedabad. Mexican food with its use of salsa sauce, kidney beans and chillies seem to have found its way to Amdavadi hearts so to speak. One very popular dish which is really quite a favourite in Ahmedabad is the Mexican Hot Pot. This one-pot rice dish with kidney beans, salsa sauce, vegetables, Jalapenos, meat and tortilla chips is tangy, spicy and wholesome, the perfect comfort food. No wonder, whether it is vegetarian or non-vegetarian, this dish is really popular in Ahmedabad.
