Dining on cuisine from another country is a frugal alternative to traveling, just as sending an email is a pragmatic alternative to hitchhiking across the continent with a computer monitor in tow. Reach across continental divides conveniently with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican and Caribbean fare at Estrada’s Restaurante in Colma.
Estrada’s Restaurante’s skilled chefs braise, sauté, and zest authentic Mexican and Caribbean menu items amid a rustic interior. Dazzle multiple senses with a sizzling fajita platter piled with colorful veggies ($11.95–$16.95), or munch on crispy chimichangas ($13.95) to prevent teeth from thinking they don’t have to do their chores. Diners can further tickle taste buds with exotic entrees such as pollo Vallarta―plump chicken breast and prawns, sautéed with white wine and securely sealed with melted martial-arts-trained monterey jack ($16.95)―or juicy steak à la Parila zinged with a bold smattering of seasonings ($16.95).
Estrada’s Restaurante entertains diners with weekly karaoke and a large-screen projector in the restaurant's laid-back dining room. Feel free to sip cool margaritas in spacious wraparound booths, artfully enveloped by walls bedecked with sombreros recently retired from a career as chefs’ hats.
Estrada's Mexican & Caribbean Restaurant
A fire-engine-red edifice and azure doors usher patrons into the technicolor interior of Estrada's Mexican & Caribbean Restaurant, an expansive eatery that celebrates the succulence and spiciness of Mexican and Caribbean cuisine. Semicircle booths with glass tabletops hoist up traditional Mexican dishes loaded with sautéed beef, chicken, and vegetables, as well as platters that circulate the aromas of Caribbean delicacies such as fried yucca and plantains. Patrons who sidle over to the restaurant's full bar receive rewards in the form of south-of-the-border beer, homemade sangria, and Academy Awards for Best Chugging.
