Zest: La Fiesta is home of authentic Mexican food
February 15, 2019
The home of great, authentic Mexican "comida," La Fiesta Grill and Cantina is a classic-style Mexican restaurant offering true family dining and Mexican culture through a fresh spin on traditional Mexican fare.
Chef Edgar Ruiz and Fausto Felix, who graduated from Le Cordon Blue Collage of Culinary Arts, hail from Mexico's Pacific Coast of Culican, bringing a focus on costal and central Mexican food, inspired by family gatherings for special occasions. All the meals — including dishes dating to the ancient Maya (try its Cochinita Pibil, wrapped in banana leaves or 26-ingredient mole)— combine such old-world flavors as chipotle, cilantro and distinct cheeses, with beautiful presentations and fresh ingredients with an authenticity everyone will enjoy.
Choose from a variety of fajitas — including skirt steak, grilled chicken, jumbo shrimp and chipotle chicken — as well as taco platters (including $2 tacos), salads and healthy choice items, including spinach enchiladas with pico de gallo smothered in tomato sauce. It also offers vegan, vegetarian, gluten- and dairy-free options.
Other favorites include the shrimp Cabo Wabo, simmered in chipotle and Cabo Wabo tequila sauce; chicken mole, topped with sweet red chili sauce; and chile rellenos, stuffed with cheese, egg-battered and pan-fried with black beans, corn pico and ranchero sauce. Seafood specialties include shell fish, fish and shrimp cured in lime juice and topped with salsas.
From the cantina come a variety of margaritas, including cucumber, spicy mango, avocado, grapefruit and jalapeño infused, and more than 50 tequilas to bring more fiesta to your dining experience.
