July 24 is the official National Tequila Day, but at Cadillac Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar inside the Golden Nugget, its as if every day is National Tequila Day.
Cadillac Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar hasn’t been open long, but it’s already winning over downtown visitors with its great selection of tequila and mouth-watering menu.
Let’s start with the tequila first! For example, there’s the Sangria Swirl, as sexy as it is thirst-quenching.
As you might expect, Cadillac Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar has a killer traditional margarita.
Now that your whistle has been whet, it’s time to sample the menu.
First up are the popular Ahi Tuna Tacos appetizer.
Time to dive into a salad. We’re a recent fan of the Cantina Shrimp Salad, with grilled shrimp, mangoes, strawberries, grapes and pepitas, tossed with honey-lime vinaigrette. It’s just light and zesty and everything you’d want in terms of flavor and freshness.
Enough with the build-up. Let’s get serious.
Here’s the Relleno de Camaron. This hearty dish is a roasted poblano pepper stuffed with sauteed shrimp, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, Monterey Jack cheese and salsa ranchera.
Meat lovers will go nuts for the Carnitas Guadalajara.
In this dish, the pork is cooked for four hours, ensuring it’s tender and full of flavor. The meat is sauteed with onions, roasted jalapenos, cilantro and lime.
While the menu at Cadillac Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar is tempting, you owe it to yourself to explore the tequila offerings further. The bar has more than 70 different kinds of tequila, so there’s something for every taste and budget.
Shots of Don Julio 1942 are served in stemless snifters, not traditional shot glasses, so you know you’re in for a treat.
We trust you are not attached to being able to feel your face, because this is really good tequila.
When it’s time to truly indulge, go for the Patron Gran Burdeos Tequila Añejo. At $95 a shot, it’s an indulgence, but in Las Vegas, it’s go big or go home!
Cadillac Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar can be found in the former Carson Street Cafe space, next to the new Claimjumper restaurant. Learn more.
