A stop by Cantina restaurant in the Woodlands area of Lusaka was everything I needed on a sunny weekend afternoon, they have a great menu that offers essential Mexican treats.
We ordered carnitas nachos, a buffalo chicken taco, a beef baracoa taco, churros and some cantina signature mocktails. Don’t let the ‘snack bar’ tag fool you, the food was actually filling. I loved the textures and flavour of the pork carnitas and that tang that the pineapple added. The taco’s were equally yummy and the mocktails were subtle enough not to neutralise the enjoyable taste of the food. I also appreciated that the churros were not overly sweet and they were a worthy balance to all the savoury, tangy goodness of the other options we ordered. Ayayai, it felt like such a guilty pleasure to even chew 😩, Mexican food is bae.
Shout out to Mary for the excellent service too.
