Guests can sit there or, if they want to watch the chefs assemble their elegant creations, at the sushi bar. Nearby, a full-service bar dishes out imported and domestic beers, cocktails, and plum wine.
Herradura's kitchen hums with the sounds of simmering Mexican sauces and sizzling meats. Chef Rita Castro fries up fresh shrimp, crab, and scallops for seafood fajitas, stuffs taquitos with beef or chicken, and adorns cheese enchiladas with pork, onions, tomatoes, and bell peppers. Bartenders blend natural juices into pitchers of mango, cactus fruit, and guava margaritas, drawing from an 18-year-old recipe formulated by brothers Raul and Oscar.
Pinatas dangle from the ceiling at Chaska My Love, giving them a perfect view of the restaurant's orange and red walls adorned with murals of iconic Mexican images and landscapes. Below, diners nestle into bright blue booths before tucking into plates heaped high with flavorful dishes, such as carne asada, sizzling fajitas, and guacamole made with fresh avocados. The menu offers a variety of authentic Mexican appetizers, entrees, and desserts, as well as antojitos, which translates to "little cravings" and refers to Mexican street food such as tacos and tamales.
