The tortilla's thinness makes it ideal for folding, sliding under closed doors, and illustrating theories that the Earth is flat and made of corn. Voyage to the edge of deliciousness with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican cuisine and festive drinks at Isla Mexican Kitchen, located in the Treasure Island hotel.
Isla transmutes traditional ingredients and classic recipes into a menu of modern Mexican cuisine. Start the digestive fiesta with chips and chipotle-adobo guacamole ($10.95), which sports spiced pumpkin seeds, or the piquant, cheese-stuffed chile relleno with chipotle sauce ($15.95). A scarecrow mariachi band protects each savory cup of green-chile pork stew ($7.95) from maladjusted grackles, coating the throat before a ceremonious noshing of the filet mignon burrito ($16.95) or the tacos baja, stuffed to the gills with tasty tilapia ($14.95). With a myriad of tequila bottles and other spirits, the bartenders add a feisty kick to Isla's creative margaritas before doling out drink recommendations.
Exposed brick pillars and colorful décor deck Isla Mexican Kitchen's walls with contemporary panache. Creative designer Jeffrey Beers carefully tailored the chic, casual atmosphere to reflect the restaurant's vibrant dishes and the staff's obsession with Tetris.
