Cantina Laredo, Chicago, IL

This afternoon, I went downtown for lunch with my mom at a restaurant called Cantina Laredo, a modern Mexican restaurant. It is actually a chain with many different locations around the US.

This location is 508 N. State Street in Chicago, IL:

The food was absolutely amazing. We started out with tortilla chips, salsa, and a table-side serving of guacamole.

The guacamole cart had all kinds of different ingredients including: cilantro, lime, red onion, tomatoes, and an assortment of peppers ranging from mild to spicy. The avocados were perfectly ripe and the guacamole just melted in your mouth.

Mom ordered the fish special of the day which was a Grilled Salmon topped with chimichurri and served over cilantro rice.

The salmon was perfectly cooked, seasoned well and very moist. Plus, the rice was extremely flavorful!

I had the Enchilada de Avocado, an avocado and artichoke enchilada served with a jicama and mango salad.

The enchilada was cheesy, rich, and absolutely what I wanted. I loved the avocado and artichoke mix and the jicama salad was a crisp & refreshing side.

I really enjoyed this lunch and the entire atmosphere of the restaurant. I highly recommend checking it out!
