Tortillas were first discovered by Aztec leaders searching for a tool to both feed their villages and protect them from the storm clouds that hailed guacamole incessantly. Consume an edible umbrella with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Mexican and American fare at La Fogata Cafe & Restaurant on North Nellis Boulevard.
La Fogata Cafe & Restaurant tantalizes taste buds with a menu of spicy Mexican cuisine balanced with American classics. Snack on the cheese-and-corn pairing of chilis rellenos, whose onion-stuffed poblano peppers dip their toes in egg batter then belly-flop into a frying pan full of tomato sauce ($6.75). Sautéed shrimp lounge quietly in garlic and a citrus-chipotle tomato sauce in the Devil's Tail ($8.99), and weekend barbecue-rib stacks double as mouth xylophones when chewed in the right order ($7.99). After strolling into La Fogata’s dining room, patrons can converse around alabaster tables and peer up at archways inlaid with sculpted swirls and spirals that hide a secret hot-sauce recipe in a language only dolphins understand.
La Fogata is closed on Mondays.
