Like piñatas, bodies must be filled with quality ingredients to effectively satisfy the demands of screaming children. Summon the strength to endure a baseball batting from a blindfolded child with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of southwestern fare and non-alcoholic drinks at Cantina 18, located minutes from downtown Raleigh in the Cameron Village shopping center. Specializing in southwestern-inspired cuisine, chef Jason Smith of 18 Seaboard uses only fresh ingredients to prepare his palate-pandering menu. Mouth-watering new specials cartwheel out from the kitchen daily; past plate highlights include chicken and pineapple fajitas served with peppers, onions, and panela cheese ($12) and pork belly and sweet corn enchiladas ($11). Exposed brick walls and outdoor seating sweeten diners' cozy, family-friendly experiences as organically and unfussily as bees sweeten Honeycomb cereal.
