Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $12, you get $25 worth of authentic Mexican fare and drinks at Leticia's Mexican Cocina.
Leticia's fresh, homemade Mexican fare can be pieced together using a la carte menu items or served family style. Start tongues tapping with starters such as the queso fundido, a blend of melted gouda and menonita cheese served with mini hot-flour or corn tortillas and a choice of additional toppings (chorizo, onions, chiles toreados, or mushrooms, $8.59), or freshly made guacamole, studded with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and fresh limes and topped with a slice of queso panela cheese ($5.89 for small, $9.89 for large). Pass around the "Carmelita" chile rellenos, a fried and stuffed poblano pepper smothered with sauce and melted house cheese ($11.89+), or allow a school of fish or shrimp tacos (Ensenada style) to swim across your tongue's salivary sea ($10.89). Finish off with a café de olla, a slowly brewed coffee with cinnamon, piloncillo, and a hint of Mexican chocolate, all served with crispy buñuelos ($3.50).
Diners can easily satisfy artistically starved eyebuds, whether dining al fresco or relaxing inside surrounded by warm, colonial Mexican décor. Leticia's welcoming atmosphere makes it an ideal place to linger over a snifter of one of the 50+ varieties of tequila or flirtatiously debate the pros and cons of robot ownership over a made-to-order margarita.
Good for dine-in or carryout.
- A good place to do that would be Leticia's Mexican Cocina, which makes the no-yellow-cheese pledge on its website. The place is comfortable, attractively decorated and nonthreatening for those of the flyover persuasion – Heidi Knapp Rinella, Review-Journal
- This was my second visit. We had the breakfast brunch on Saturday. I think this my [sic] favorite place for Mexican food and the atmosphere is delightful – Larry Selk, Urbanspoon
