After work $5 menu?! Yes, please!! Tag all your taco loving friends and head to Vida Cantina! They have a sweet patio overlooking the city, an extensive menu with so many different tacos to choose from and delicious house-made margaritas!
We enjoyed chips, salsa and queso while we went back and forth on which tacos to mix and match (which was the hardest part!).
We had the:
Jalapeño bacon shrimp
Red Chile chicken
Carne asada steak
They were all amazing but the spice-crusted ahi tuna with a blend of cheeses, pineapple slaw and mango habanero salsa and the al pastor which is roasted pork tossed in manchamantel sauce, with grilled pineapple, blend of cheeses, onions and cilantro were our favs!
All taco plates come with 2 sides. How could we just get rice and beans when they had so many other sides to choose from? The mixed veggies and the grilled corn with queso fresco were so good !
