From beginning to end, the night was fabulous as always at Pepe’s Cantina. We had a media sneak peak of the new and old menu items.
The Picanha Fajitas are new to the menu and everyone is drooling while they wait for the new menu to hit the streets.
Picanha is a favorite steak cut of mine and many as it’s popular in the Brazilian and other Latin American countries.
It is so tender and flavorful. Each bite made my mouth water!
The Watermelon Margarita is new to the menu. You can get the margarita on ice or as a slush. Take it from me, get the slush. It’s so much nicer and smoother.
There’s no need to worry about watermelon chunks blocking up your straw when it’s all blended as a slush.
The old, yet still mouthwatering…
While waiting for the Picanha Fajitas to be available for you to eat, snack on some fresh guacamole that’s made table side. I love avocado and guacamole. I can eat it all day with chips or on its own. Once the Picanha Fajitas come out, slap some on top!
The Jarritos Margarita is nice and tall in the back. It’s strong if you don’t allow the soda to dilute the drink. However, if you don’t drink, the soda will drain into the glass and the drink will overflow the glass… Ironic, no? Diluted or not, these drinks are some of my favorites – aside from the watermelon margarita slush.
The Loaded Carne Asada Fries has so many flavors and textures, but soggy isn’t one. When you see loaded fries, you may think of how the fries are soggy because that’s what I usually think. To my surprise, these fries are far from being soggy and that’s pretty great. These are good how they are or you can dip them in the fresh table side guacamole.
The Meli-Malibu can be found on the cocktail menu. It consists of Malibu served with orange and pineapple juice, a spicy salted rim, and topped with a housemate margarita mix. This drink is quite unique and I want you to let me know what you think of it.
