A walkathon around Dubai Mall one busy weekend had us craving for some seriously good, authentic Mexican grub, and this is how we found ourselves at Rosa Mexicano.

Founded in New York way back in 1984 by Mexican immigrant Josefina Howard, the restaurant has two franchises in Dubai. One is located in Mirdiff Mall, and the other, where we dined at, is located on the lower ground floor of Dubai Mall.

Mama Cuellar, a Mexican immigrant to the States, drew crowds at a country fair outside Dallas, Texas with her mouthwatering tamales. That was way back in 1926.

With the help of her twelve children and a whole ammunition of crowd-pleasing recipes, Mama Cuellar gave the world the El Chico chain of fine Mexican cuisine.

Her legacy continues with a large fan following the world over, and today I’m sharing her famous guacamole recipe with you.
