Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of faraway lands at Everyday's Tropical Cantina in Colonie.
An eclectic menu drafts the most delectable dishes in Italian and Hispanic cuisine to hush hunger in a laid-back, casual environment. Silence a nagging stomach with a palette-pleasing jalapeno popper appetizer ($7) before engaging the eardrums of fellow diners with a soulful round of karaoke, which takes place every Thursday and Saturday evening. Heartier entrees include specialty sandwiches, such as the Cape Cod sandwich, a lovingly charbroiled chicken breast tucked between bread and bacon, covered in American cheese and cranberry sauce ($9). Tropical Cantina balances Mexican food with Italian, just as tightrope walkers balance their love of heights with their disappointment in flightlessness, with the Mexican pizza, a doughy disc covered in enchilada sauce and cheddar cheese ($10) with the option to add pulled pork or machaca beef ($3).
To complement the food, Tropical Cantina entertains eaters with their array of arcade games allowing multitasking munchers to gain golf experience, practice their hunting techniques, and finally confess to scarring childhood experiences to virtual psychologists all which enjoying an 8 oz. black Angus steer burger ($7), or deep-fried ice cream ($5).
