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 $12, you get $25 worth of Mexican fare at Casa Mariachi Mexican Grill in Beaverton.
Casa Mariachi serves up a menu of traditional Mexican fare to a soundtrack of stomach-pleasing melodies. Enter the lively environment and graze on the house guacamole, which is prepared tableside and served with freshly fried tortilla chips ($8.50), or find a traditionally garbed waiter and ask for a cup of hearty tortilla soup ($4.95) to distract your appetite until the main meal makes a debut. Like an oil tycoon, all fajitas arrive at the table engulfed in flames, and sizzling options such as fresh fish fillet ($14.45), chipotle-marinated chicken ($12.95), and steak ($13.95) remain tastily intact on the piping-hot skillet. Created by former Mexico-based tamale vendors, Casa Mariachi’s homemade tamales are filled with stone-ground corn and packed with seasoned chicken or perfectly spiced pork (five for $13.95). Pair your fare with a beverage from the long libations list, which describes drinks such as the chili pepper–infused signature mariachi margarita ($9) and Juanito’s organic margarita, which is made with organic lime, lemon, and orange ($12). On the weekends, guests can enjoy live mariachi entertainment and ballet folklorico dancing.
