Cantina Laredo Review
You can tell this is an upscale Mexican eatery, first by the Porsches in the parking lot and then by the aged Mexican tequila that fetches up to $48 a glass. But the prices shouldn't scare off those looking for decent Mexican food in a nice atmosphere. Among the great especialidades (special plates) is camaron poblano asada—a Mexican steak wrapped around a mild poblano pepper stuffed with shrimp and Jack cheese and topped with chimichurri sauce. If you want representative Mexican dining, go for the Cantina Laredo platter, comprising a cheese chile relleno (breaded, mild pepper, stuffed with cheese, and fried), handmade tamale, chicken enchilada, and fajita beef taco al carbon. If you walk in from the front, you may never notice the small covered dining area out back that faces a courtyard with a spectacular fountain—a pleasant setting for a lovely meal.
