In Mexico tonight, one hour before midnight and continuing all day tomorrow, the Grito de Dolores will be heard!
The Grito, or cry for independence, is proclaimed throughout Mexico on September 16th, as the county celebrates Mexican Independence Day, proudly remembering Mexico’s fight to become independent from Spain in the early 1800s.
Tonight at Destino we honor the celebration with traditional dishes in addition to our special tapas and tacos menu, Pollo en Molé Poblano and Chiles en Nogada!
Our tapas include:
Jalapeño Mac & Cheese, with corn, sweet and spicy peppers, and a crunchy breadcrumb topping.
Chilaquiles Rojos y Verdes: sauteed corn chips with spicy roasted tomato or tomatillo sauce with queso fresco and sour cream.
Elote Asado: grilled sweet corn with chipotle mayo, chili, queso fresco and lime.
Huaraches: handmade oblong crispy tortilla topped with refried beans, local vegetables, crema and avocado sauce.
