After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender, baby disk with today's Groupon to Zapata's Mexican Restaurant on Bates Hill. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare and drinks for dinner.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican fare and drinks for lunch.
A fiesta-like atmosphere pervades Zapata's, from the colourful walls and booths to the cheerfully tiled tabletops. The lunch menu awakens drowsy midday stomachs with bacon, chicken, cheese, and green chili in Zapata's club quesadilla ($9.99) or in the Tostado del Rey's bites of Newfoundland shrimp and chicken in a cheese- and guacamole-draped tortilla ($10.99). Generous portions of Mexican favourites compose the dinner menu, along with diverse options—such as ribs and steak—that beckon patrons not heeding a tortilla-tinged order from stomachs. Specials of the house heap dishes with the Patillo de Zapata, a combination plate featuring a talented trio of cheese enchilada, beef taco, and flauta de pollo ($15.99), and the deep-fried mexican spring rolls harness enough fusion flavour to power future lunar colonies ($5.99).
Zapata’s Mexican Restaurant
Named for Mexican revolutionary leader Emiliano Zapata, Zapata’s Mexican Restaurant overthrows bland meals with a menu of zesty cuisine. Customers choose from dishes such as grilled chimichangas, smoky baby back ribs with Mexican rice, and cornmeal crepes with mushroom sauce. Bartenders pair diners' meals with sangria, beer, and frozen cocktails.
