A tortilla makes a handy mouse-pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves: for $10, you get $20 worth of contemporary Mexican cuisine and drinks at Arriba Tortilla in East Aurora.
Every item on Arriba Tortilla's inventive menu is made from scratch, borrowing from both traditional Mexican and contemporary Tex-Mex recipes. Customize a combination of crisp veggies, freshly grated cheese, and high-quality meats to create a fun Mexican pizza atop a toasty 12" tortilla crust (starting at $6.28). Or, apply your appetite's taste for design to a plate of one 8'' flour or two hard-shell tacos, selecting stuffing from savory options such as spicy chorizo ($5.57), beer-battered haddock ($5.33), steak ($6.29), and mahi-mahi ($6.89). Bellies boycotting carbs can opt for a serving of shrimp skewers with pineapple salsa, jalepeño jelly, and rice ($10.24) or make a carb compromise with a pepperjack-and-poblano-smothered salsa burger served on pita bread with fresh pico de gallo, lettuce, and sweet-potato fries ($9.63).
Arriving Arriba patrons are greeted with the sounds of sizzling platters laid atop sensual Spanish guitar music, the scents of warm cooking spices, and the brain-tickling sights of vibrant, quirky décor. Surrender to the exciting, escapist ambiance by trading in your everyday worries for a refreshing margarita as you settle in at a table, or mix the pico de gallo, guacamole, and queso contents of a dip sampler ($7.73) to create a sort-of-rose-colored paste that blocks out all stresses when smeared onto spectacles.
