Cantina Laredo, the contemporary Mexican cuisine restaurant with 35 locations throughout the United States, as well as, London, Abu Dhabi, Turkey, and Qatar, opened their first Caribbean location this week at The Mall of San Juan. The restaurant serves authentic Mexican dishes and drinks using only the best ingredients. From their signature Casa’Rita, a margarita prepared with freshly squeezed limes, their made-to-order Top Shelf Guacamole which is prepared tableside, hand rolled enchiladas, and their signature specialty dishes, there is something in the menu to satisfy everyone.
This week, we got the chance to attend an exclusive media tasting where we enjoyed some of their most popular menu items. Let me tell you I was blown away by the amazing flavors. Among the dishes you can’t miss are the Queso Laredo (a creamy queso with seared ground sirloin, pico de gallo, and a kick of heat); Carnitas Tacos prepared with a smoky chipotle wine sauce and served with rice (Mexican or cilantro) and black beans; Mole; and the Steak Fajitas, just to name a few. Although truth be told, we loved everything we tried here.
Love brunch? No problem. Get ready to enjoy a Mexican style brunch with dishes like Asada y Huevos, Chilaquiles, and Huevos Rancheros. Kick your brunch game up a notch by pairing your dish with your favorite margarita. If private gathering is more your style, the restaurant has two private rooms, depending on your group size.
Cantina Laredo is open daily from 11:30 am to 10:00 pm. Brunch, lunch and menu items start at $7.99 and make sure you check out their Happy Hour which is takes place seven days a week from 4:00pm – 7:00pm.
