For those wanting to extend the revelry into dinner, Matt and his culinary team offer their “all day, your way” menu. “Our all-day menu always is always right for any time of day, whether you stop in for just guacamole and a margarita, a lunch of shared plates with friends, or a dinner with the entire crew, tasting some of everything. We don’t dictate how you create your meal … you can mix and match to create the perfect experience.
Alamexo Cantina offers Weekend Specials Through January
Newly opened sister to downtown’s Alamexo Mexican Kitchen, Alamexo Cantina in the iconic 9th and 9th district urges guests to “Find Your LaPlaya” with Weekend Winter Warmers. Specialty margaritas and $1 Tacos are on the menu in the Cantina’s bar every Saturday and Sunday from noon until 2 p.m. through January.
Served only in the bar, the tacos offered will change each week and will have one meat option and one vegetarian. “We can do some really fun and adventuresome tacos that I normally wouldn’t be able to put on my daily menus.” Said chef/owner Matt Lake. He’ll be serving up his artistic creations likeTacos carnitas y salsa verde cruda, Tacos flor de calabaza y salsa frijoles y hoja Santa, Tacos de bistek y salsa molcajete and Tacos Hongos y salsa guajillo. – these are samples from summer 2016 offerings – let me know if you want to change descriptions.
Specialty margaritas, concocted by the team based on what local ingredients are in season, will change weekly. “Our team is having a great time creating new flavor combinations for these specialty margaritas to match the Cantina fare and $1 tacos,” said Susan Bouldin, general manager.
