Hussong’s Cantina & Taqueria Introduces New Menu Items

Hussong’s

 Cantina & Taqueria Adds New Flavors to Menu Favorites

A twist on taste brings new spice to Hussong’s Baja meets Mexican-American dishes

 

Hussong’s Cantina & Taqueria reinvents its sizzle with new flavors that expose diners to Baja’s best. Executive Chef Noe Alcala continues to create classic Mexican-American dishes and authentic Baja street fare that diners can enjoy in a fun and casual atmosphere.

Hussong’s tasty yet affordable menu allows guests to start their night off with a selection of traditional appetizers with an original twist including cult favorite Plazero Grilled Corn, which is lightly brushed with mayo-butter and given a healthy sprinkle of cotija cheese and chili flakes, and Ceviche Baja Style with fresh shrimp marinated in lime and jalapeno and served in a Baja mix of cucumber, red onions, tomatoes and cilantro. The Guacamole Mango/Habanero is Hussong’s signature guacamole enhanced with mango, sundried tomatoes and Habanero peppers.

Delving into the heart of the menu, Hussong’s features simple and authentic entrees. These include the Carnitas Platter, charred Ensenada style carnitas finished with a citrus soda glaze, placed over fajitas veggie mix, topped with Habanero pickled onions and served with corn tortillas, rice and beans; Mixed Plate Tacos gives guests a foursome of street tacos stuffed with the choice of protein on fresh corn tortillas, flour tortillas or lettuce shells, topped with pico de gallo and Mexican white cheese and served with a side of homemade Mexican rice and borracho beans;  Grilled Salmon is finished with a honey chipotle glaze and served over roasted garlic red potatoes and sautéed vegetable spaghetti. The Huarache, a tenderized flap steak atop a crispy tortilla and borracho beans and topped with layers of chile negro salsa, Chimichurri, pico de gallo, cotija chesse, sour cream and lettuce-cabbage, is a unique dish that gives 10% of sales to Fast-Aid, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing support for teams and their families and give support and assistance to injured racers to complete a thorough recovery and rehabilitation from motor sports racing incidents.

For dessert, guests can indulge in Fried Ice Cream, dulce de leche ice cream breaded with panko and served with fruit pico de gallo and a tomatillo salsa or Dessert Nachos made of fried flour tortillas coated with a sugar/cinnamon mix, drizzled with condensed milk and chocolate sauce, topped with a fruit pico de gallo and finished with a touch of whipping cream, strawberry and mint leaf.

The margarita was invented at Hussong’s in Ensenada and the Las Vegas location would not be complete without the Original Margarita, made of Azul Reposado 100% Blue Agave Tequila, Triple Sec, freshly Squeezed lime juice and Agave Nectar, which has never been known to disappoint. Another house favorite is the El Pepino Margarita, a combination of Milagro Silver 100% Blue Agave Tequila, Triple Sec, fresh sweet and sour and Gran Marnier.

Although a strip dining destination, Hussong’s also caters to Las Vegas locals with 20% off from 11pm to 4pm daily.
