Here are some of our favorites for Cinco de Mayo—or any day—when you’re looking for Mexican food in Manchester.
Classic, versatile, and delicious, it’s hard to go wrong with tacos. Tacos have been around for centuries. The indigenous people of the lake regions of the Valley of Mexico ate tacos filled with small fish long before the Spanish conquistadors showed up. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Mexican immigrants brought tacos to the U.S. when they came to California and Texas to work on the railroads. Tacos changed as foods available in the U.S. became ingredients and additions, such as cheddar cheese and iceberg lettuce.
This is another delicious Mexican staple that predates the Spaniards’ arrival to the Americas. When it was first eaten by the Aztecs, they made it from avocados, tomatoes, and chilis. While onions, cilantro, and lime juice are common guacamole ingredients now, those are Spanish additions. The Spaniards understandably developed a taste for this tasty side dish and added their own flavors and ingredients to it. Today, people talk about avocado as a healthy fat, but we think it’s popular because guacamole is delicious.
What kind of Cinco de Mayo would it be without margaritas? Mexican food in Manchester is great, but you need to pair it with the right drink! Margaritas are one of the most popular cocktails in the world, for obvious reasons. They are delicious, refreshing, and easy to customize. While tequila and lime juice are the key ingredients to a classic margarita, there are easy ways to change up the flavors. Our bartenders love to get creative, so stop by and they’ll craft a cocktail just for you!
