Cantina Laredo - A Mexican in Khalidiyah Mall, Abu Dhabi

Add: Cantina Laredo, Khalidiyah Mall, Al Khalidiyah, Abu Dhabi
Tel: +971 2 635 4877

Lovely fresh chips ... served with zingy HOT salsa (temperature hot, and slightly spicy too) ... in fact there were 2 varieties of salsa dip. A good start!

We had two main courses, one was priced in the mid-50s and the other in the mid-70s (Dirhams, AED) ... Not cheap, but decent considering the good service and nice ambience (Privacy, despite it being in the middle of a rather busy mall!). I thought the beef could have been better though, I had the fajita-esque beef, which wrapped shrimps (Odd, but it works!) as well as a large bell pepper. I did like the sauteed veges though, delicious potatoes.

TimeOut ...
All dining experiences at this Mexican restaurant begin with complimentary crunchy chips served with fresh and zingy salsa. This is enough of an appetiser in itself, but if you stopped there then you would miss Cantina Laredo’s signature dish: the guacamole created fresh at your table, and like almost every other dish, it’s big enough to share.
