In the lively kitchen of Salsa Café & Cantina, Chef Gregory Bautista conjures a culinary spell of spiced meats, savory sauces, and mystical chili peppers. Design dinners with a date or group of chupacabra skeptics while perusing menus of edible Mexican folklore. Mushroom quesadillas unleash an earthy rapture of shiitake, oyster, and crimini caps before binding them in layers of queso blanco magic. Pepper-encrusted fillets soaked in sangria sauce satisfy meaty fusion cravings, and piles of tequila prawns soak up flavor by swimming in a marinade of olive oil, chili sauce, and the distilled emotions of agave plants.

Salsa Café exudes a sophisticated air of reflective hardwood floors and decorative red and black accents. Both day and night, the dining room buzzes with the clamor of family parties, business meetings, and support groups for unemployed piñatas. WiFi-infused air also wafts into the wireless nostrils of visiting computers every day except Tuesday, when Salsa Café is closed.

Salsa Cafe and Cantina

Though the vibrant crimson walls and the flat screens in the bar area fight for it, it's the rich red and green enchilada sauces at Salsa Cafe and Cantina's that steal diners' attention. The sense parade continues into the more subdued dining room, where freshly made guacamole with a secret blend of seasonings builds excitement for the meal ahead. The menu features traditional favorites, such as the slow-cooked and seasoned Mexican-style carnitas, but it also weaves creative Latin flavors into dishes such as the Venezuelan hot dog with cabbage and crushed potato chips, and embellishes American tastes with a trio of burgers. Meal encores take the form of red velvet cake, cinnamon crispies, and Chocolate Rage cake, the only known cure for Hulk rampages. Such innovative fare has not gone unnoticed in the community—Carol Deptola from the Journal Sentinel raves about the dishes in her three-star review.
