Like a tongue on a flagpole in February, fusion cuisine results from curiosity and a shortage of popsicles. Rein in restless taste buds with today's Groupon: for $20 you get $40 worth of southwestern fusion cuisine at Señor Coyotes Cantina & Grille in downtown Erie.
Señor Coyote's owner and executive chef Ismael Aguilar, along with his staff of cheerful culinary wranglers, creates fresh, scrumptious southwestern cuisine for carnivores and vegetarians alike. Scope out the lunch menu for tempting appetizers and munchies crunching entrees, including four distinct flavors of enchiladas ($7.95–$9.95) and the palate-pleasing taco salad ($7.95). Captain a cruise of chorizo fajitas, which come dressed in a cloak of chicken or beef strips with fresh herbs, chorizo, and buoys of guacamole ($12.95). Evening eaters can select from a wide-ranging dinner menu featuring beefed-up versions of fusion entrees as well as specialty dishes, savory sandwiches, and pasta creations. Sate lingering hunger pains with chili rellenos, a lightly fried offering of stuffed poblano peppers ($10.95) or yearn for the yard bird-based chicken Durango, a grilled chicken breast glazed with barbecue sauce and balanced with colorful corn relish and mango pico de gallo ($13.95).
The flickering candlelight and warm glow radiating from dim lanterns offer an intimate atmosphere for confessing your oddly specific addiction to cribbage and Cabbage Patch dolls. Señor Coyotes's full-service bar is the ideal locale for enjoying excellent libations, conversations, and specialty tequila drinks.
