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 $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare at Soto's Cantina (formerly La Parranda) on Grant Road. As of October 17, 2011, La Parranda has closed, and Soto's Cantina will open by November 7, 2011.
The culinary wizards at La Parranda appease appetites of all types with fresh dishes that take residence on a cantina-style menu of zesty Mexican cuisine. Amid a casual setting, coronate a meal with friends by dunking triangular tortillas into a small order of chili con queso ($3) or skinny-dipping shrimp into a pool of shrimp cocktail ($10). Growling tummies will be tamed by hearty beef enchiladas ($9), while the carne asada—a 10-ounce fajita steak—($13) halts hunger pains with more facility than a piñata stuffed with meat. The classic tacos de pescado ($12) leave taste buds swooning like 1950s teenagers at a Franz Liszt cover band concert, and recently earned a spot in Erin Miller’s Houston Classic Mexican Recipes cookbook.
