Mexican food the Uruguayan style

End of courses Mex-Uy dinner.

End of courses Mex-Uy dinner.

No one was surprised when we finished dinner. Where shall we meet for a great night after classes? Typical uruguayan? parrillada? maybe pizzas? …. What about mexican?

La Cantina Mexicana became our favourite restaurant in La Paloma. Healthy mexican food, slightly spiced and warmly served. There we met with the Carlson’s, the Finkler’s, Nathalie and the Pereyra’s (us). A lovely night with more of these incredible people that I happen to meet thanks to the Spanish lessons.

The Carlson’s on their bike trip around town, the Finkler’s on their 5th trip around Uruguay and South America and Natalie just coming from Brazil and heading towards the Spanish part of America.

But let’s go back to the Cantina, amazing enchiladas, delicious tacos and varied sincronizadas are the top. Mini breweries beer and the tasty Negra Modelo along with frozen margaritas!!!

The best wishes for the Cantina and hope it becomes a classic in town!!!
