Cantina Laredo is a great Mexican restaurant that serves wonderfully real Mexican dishes. The bright and spacious interiors, lovely Mariachi music and the smiling faces of the staff welcome you as you step in.
The nachos were at the table in minutes and the fresh salsa and guacamole (made right at your table) were a great way to start the evening. The Mexico City style menu includes grilled fish, chicken and steaks complimented by signature sauces such as chipotle-wine with portobello mushrooms or sauteed artichoke hearts and roasted red bell peppers.
Don’t miss the Guacomole, Shrimp Cocktail and most of all the Beef brisket soft tacos. I love the seafood grill too! This is a affordable place and even offers some good lunch combos.
Also, the great choice of beverages – especially the margarita (non-alcoholic though). And leave place for deserts… the apple pie!
The outlet at Khalidiya Mall (Level 1) is the first to be opened i the UAE and has gained quite a fan following, evident from the busy evening even on a weekday.
Open daily: 11 am to midnight ( and a little longer on weekends). You can also call for home delivery.
