Like most modern conflicts, the rivalry between soft and hard tacos will not end until one side gets eaten by a bear. Broker a culinary truce with today’s Groupon: for $27, you get a Mexican dinner and drinks for two at La Salsa Cantina (up to a $54.75 value). This Groupon is valid for the location inside the Miracle Mile Shops at the Planet Hollywood Hotel. The meal includes the following:
- One chips-and-guacamole appetizer (a $6.95 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $14.95 value each)
- Two “Real” margaritas (a $8.95 value each)
La Salsa Cantina’s menu brims with Mexican fare such as soft tacos, creamy guacamole, and burritos bursting at the flour-seams. Chefs mash avocados before mixing in tomatoes and herbs for a seasoned guacamole dip, which travels safely from plate to mouth via tortilla-chip freight carrier. Dining pairs can attack a grande burrito—an agglomeration of mexican rice, black beans, cheese, and a choice of meat—or nosh on meat-free fare, such as a fajita salad with roasted red, green, and poblano peppers. In the enchiladas rojas dish, a pair of red-sauce drizzled corn tortillas blot out the sun with sizable portions of jack and cheddar cheese, and combination platters rent out space to culinary roommates, including a baja fish taco and shrimp enchilada. The La Salsa “Real” margarita cools off overworked jaws with house gold tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and a house-made sweet and sour mix, served frozen or on the rocks.
