Las Margaritas' Facebook page has inspired me to tell you what an awesome Mexican restaurant in Vancouver this is. Currently, Las Margaritas is having a little contest on its Facebook page, where you can win a $50 gift certificate. Who wouldn't want to win that?
I can't remember the first time I first discovered Las Margaritas. It was many, many years ago. Nevertheless, the warm ambience, perfect margaritas and delicious food really impressed me and I've been going back ever since.
Las Margaritas makes some of the best margaritas I've ever tasted. Made from natural fruit juices and quality tequila, its margaritas are a perfectly refreshing drink on a hot summer's day (or a cold autumn evening). There are so many flavours to choose from too -- like lime, pineapple, strawberry and coconut, just to name a few. Don't worry if you don't drink though, you can order a virgin margarita that is just as tasty.
I haven't been to Mexico, but if food in Mexico is like the food at Las Margaritas, I'd be extremely happy. Las Margaritas starts its guests off with complimentary homemade nacho chips and salsa, which are absolutely delicious. Its menu is extensive, with appetizers like ceviche, jalapeno poppers and taquitos. There are even more main entrees to choose from and the variety is astounding. One of my personal tried-and-tested favourites is the Enchilada de Sonora, a huge plate featuring a flour tortilla filled with roasted beef or chicken, three cheeses, and chiles, topped with a generous dollop of guacamole and swizzles of sour cream. All this comes with amarilla sauce, a huge helping of refried beans and Mexican rice. Absolutely delicious.
It doesn't stop there. There's dessert too. Did someone say churros?
Las Margaritas is hands down my favourite Mexican restaurant in Vancouver. Go check it out at 1999 West 4th Ave.
