Paquito’s Mexican Restaurant entertains taste buds with a broad menu of dishes that follow family recipes that won the Best Taco award from the Miami New Times in 2009. Twosomes design outfits for tortilla chips, stylishly jacketing them with guacamole dip made from freshly mashed avocados and spices or disguising them beneath the Paquito’s nachos’ chorizo and sour cream. A handful of entrees take their inspiration from the chef’s grandmother, including the banderilla de carne, a pair of charbroiled fillets skewered with bacon and mushrooms before being tossed through fires by an Olympic javelin thrower. Seafood lovers sing the praises of the Ixtapa-style jumbo shrimp marinated in garlic and simmered in tomato sauce with olives and capers. Patrons share desserts including deep-fried vanilla ice cream, which creates a more refreshing combination of hot and cold than a lemonade stand in a sauna.
Striped tablecloths host plates of colorful eats, and Mexican-style baubles draw eyes up the pink, yellow, and green walls to the decorations hanging from the ceiling. Patrons hone vocal chops during karaoke on Thursday and Saturday evenings to entertain friends and prepare for America’s Next Top Line Reader auditions.
