Cantina Laredo

I absolutely love Mexican food and could quite happily eat it everyday, unfortunately there isn't one near to where I live. So when I won a meal for two last week at the St Martin's Courtyard Blogger Challenge (see here), I knew instantly that I had to go to Cantina Laredo. My sister came with me as she has been meaning to try out the place for the last couple of weeks. We started with frozen mango flavoured margaritas (my new fave drink), closely followed by top shelf guacamole. For mains we both had Enchiladas Veracruz, which were so filling, but I wanted more! For pudding - the mexican brownie was suggested and who can say no to a brownie, especially when served with brandy butter and vanilla ice cream - not me! I made my sister get the Flan - just to re-live my youth and take me back to the days of Sabrina the teenage witch and the wiggly jiggly flan.

Ahhh Mexican food is my VERY FAVORITE food in the world. Luckily, here in California, we don't have a shortage in Mexican food restaurants. But there's a few that I just can't live without!
