A couple of my friends were in town last week and we wanted to meet up for dinner and cocktails. It was a Thursday evening so I recommended Cantina Laredo because on Thursday nights, “Ladies Night”, drinks are half priced!
With all of that being said, I can’t believe I forgot to take a picture of the margaritas we got. The three of us had 2 of the Casa Ritas! I enjoyed them although I thought they could have been a little stronger.
Now on to the food….
My friend, Nedra ordered the Tacos de Pescado, Mahi Mahi fish tacos with marinated veggies, queso fresco, and chipotle aoili. She said they were delicious and I believe her just from looking at the dish itself!
I ordered the Carne Asada, grilled flank steak with marinated onions, chimichurri sauce, mexican rice, and a side of avacado and tomatoes. I loved it so much I ate the entire thing…..yes…. ALL OF IT! lol!!!
My friend Ebonie ordered the Tampico, a grilled chicken breast topped with sauteed artichoke hearts, mushrooms, spinach, red bell peppers, and a sour cream-poblano sauce and monterrey jack cheese. This dish sounded and looked very rich. She enjoyed it!
After the complimentary chips and salsa, two margaritas, and dinner, we were all pretty stuffed but what is a trip to Cantina Laredo without the Mexican Apple Pie for dessert?!?!?!
I loved the presentation! The waitress brought the pie to the table and put it on a hot skillet and it sizzled immediately. She drizzled it with Mexican brandy butter and it smelled amazing. Lastly, it was topped with a generous scoop of cinnamon ice cream.
I don’t think I want apple pie any other way! It was so good! We wobbled out of the restaurant with our bellies ready to pop but good food and good friends make it all worth it!
