Tortillas, like gift boxes and bank accounts, become more desirable when filled to capacity. Marvel at corn-based brawn with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of Latin-American fare at La Parilla.
The foodsmiths at La Parilla cure cravings for traditional Latin-American cuisine by crafting a menu that's busting at the seams with dishes ranging from enchilada platters to shareable tapas. Tequila-imbibing shrimp shimmy across a flour tortilla accompanied by onion and chipotle-pepper backup dancers ($8.99). Vegetarian options include a grilled two-cheese portabella quesadilla ($6.95) or a poblano pepper stuffed with onions, monterey jack cheese, and queso fresco ($7.99). Tapas plates, such as chilean beef empanadas or combination tacos ($5.99) are ideal for sharing with friends or for persuading enemies that food has learned to self-replicate.
In Spanish, “parrilla” means “grill,” an apt name for the Latin American–inspired eatery, which specializes in Mexican, Central American, and South American cuisine served “a la parrilla.” Grilled steak, gulf shrimp, and marinated pork shoulder flavor La Parrilla’s specialty tacos, quesadillas, and taquitos, but the restaurant doesn’t limit itself to omnivore-only fare. In fact, it has earned praise from many local and rabbit-run publications for its vegetarian options, such as the veggie empanadas, portobello quesadilla, and chili relleno stuffed with onions, cheese, and cilantro. Bartenders craft tropical cocktails including lime, strawberry, and peach margaritas from a selection of more than 10 tequilas, including a made-in-house chili-infused tequila.
