Cantina in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. has great everything – salsa, chips, enchiladas, burritos, atmosphere and most importantly, margaritas!
One of my fabulous sorority sisters and I visited their location in the heart of Downtown Saratoga on Broadway last week for dinner, and it was very good. There is an indoor and outdoor seating area. We opted for the outside — read between the lines, *great* people watching!
They start you off with fresh salsa and crisp chips, and we ordered a margarita on the rocks and a bloody mary. The margarita was not bitter and had the perfect balance of tequila and sour mix.
Their menu isn’t just beans, cheese and salsa. There are great, unique combinations that take simple Mexican foods and class it up with a twist. For example, I ordered their wild mushroom enchiladas. It was sauteed mushrooms and Chihuahua cheese wrapped in flour tortillas and topped with poblano cream sauce. It was deeeelish — and much better than the regular, half heated cheddar cheese you get at some Mexican chain restaurants.
Their food presentation is very simple and you can taste the freshness.
