A taste of Latin America: At Mamasita’s Cantina, Latin American food and drink reign supreme. Inspired by Mexican street food and Cuban-style cocktails, dishes like tacos, ribs, and churros can all be found on the menu. The bar upstairs will satisfy your cravings for daiquiris, mojitos and Cuba Libres.
Look & Feel: The restaurant is located on the fifth floor of 8 Lyndhurst Terrace, while the bar sits upstairs with a terrace that accommodates 40. The whole joint is decked out in an old-school Latin theme, inspired very much by Havana, Cuba.
On the Menu: Signature dishes include the cochito horneado, which consists of a slow-cooked suckling pig with salad and guajillo pineapple jam and Acapulco ceviche featuring octopus, shrimp and fish. It’s not all for meat lovers, either: vegetarians can dig into veggie enchiladas or fish tacos.
Great For: Big parties and smaller groups alike, as well as for a casual nightcap.
FYI: Mamasita’s Cantina is run by ZS Hospitality Group, which also operates Ee Da Le and My Tai Tai in the same complex.
