Carne asada is a specialty at Tukan Grill: you can get it in taco form, topped with creamy guacamole, or even tossed over french fries, covered in shredded cheese. But one of the most popular ways to have it is as a fajitas plate. The menu here goes beyond asada, though: like the mess hall at the United Nations, it seamlessly blends culinary styles, with dishes such as the Mexican lasagna, made with shredded chicken, tortillas, and homemade tomatillo sauce, and the surf and turf burritos, stuffed with steak and shrimp. You can also enjoy hearty breakfasts of huevos rancheros or saucy chilaquiles, or have a dinner of tortas al pastor and pair it up with frosty beers and margaritas.
At first peek, the patrons at Casa Jimenez could be entering a rural Mexican townhouse, judging by the eatery's burnt-orange shingled roof and egg-white-hued fa?ade. Upon entry, a flood of natural light from large bay windows reveals a steaming parade of Mexican dishes crowded with tortilla-cloaked bites of pork, steak, and shrimp. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, diners cure spoons' hypothermia with dips in the bubbling depths of a time-tested mexican soup or embrace indecision with combination plates of burritos, enchiladas, and tacos that offer a warm rush without the indignity of being tackled by a Care Bear.
The menu at La Paloma Restaurante extends beyond the Mexican-restaurant standards of burritos and fajitas to offer vegetarian dishes and exotic game meats such as antelope, pheasant, and ostrich. Cooks marinate charbroiled ostrich filets in house spices and dress antelope filets in a cranberry-chipotle sauce. More conventional dishes include carne asada burritos—grilled, marinated sirloin sauteed with bell peppers and onions, served with guacamole and salsa—and seafood enchiladas stuffed with shrimp and cheese, topped with ranchero sauce and sour cream. Diners can compliment meals with a selection of more than 50 tequilas, or take the menu's recommendations on wine pairings and gossip topics for the evening.
Ceja's Mexican Diner & Grill uses original recipes exclusively, and makes all of its salsa and soups from scratch. The quick-service restaurant greets all of its guests with complimentary baskets of freshly baked tortilla chips and main courses follow in the form of gourmet tacos and Mexican bowls presented on a bed of spanish rice, beans, cheese, and guacamole. No matter the time, Ceja's also offers an all-day breakfast menu. On that, guests find such specialties as huevos divorciados, or two eggs served in a fried corn tortilla.
Marieta’s corn and flour tortillas are made from scratch. In fact, everything is, from the fresh guacamole to the cheesy enchiladas. Round out a meal on the umbrella-shaded patio with a margarita flavored with strawberry, guava, tamarind, or mango.
