Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Mexican cuisine at any of Casa Linda Mexican Restaurant's four Columbia-area locations.
The chefs at Casa Linda transport taste buds south of the border with a menu of fresh, authentic Mexican dishes. Dinner platters include the carne enchilada, which wraps flour tortillas around 8 ounces of chili-marinated flank steak ($10.50), and the chilies poblanos, which bathes two cheese-stuffed poblano peppers in egg batter, fries them to an oozy perfection, and teaches them to be gentle to the neighboring rice and beans ($9.25). Stir-fried shrimp dances diabolically with onions, peppers, and a special sauce in the camarones a la diabla ($10.75) before being poked with provided pitchforks. Meanwhile, the dialed-down lunch listing features smaller portions and lower prices to match, as well as 10 combination plates ($5.50).
Casa Linda Mexican Restaurant
Ismael and Silvia Villegas have been snipping off sprigs of cilantro and squeezing limes onto tacos inside Casa Linda Mexican Restaurant's kitchens since 1993. Beneath decorations such as papel picado and piñatas, staples such as chicken in mole sauce and tacos al pastor join specialties such as the Pollo Loco, a chicken breast topped with cream sauce and a medley of squash and other vegetables. The restaurant also shakes and blends specialty cocktails such as açaí cosmos and superfruit margaritas.
