Hey #Raleigh, Want Tasty #Tacos and #MexicanFood at your #CincoDeMayo party? Check out @Cantina18 ‘s New Catering Menu!

Raise your hand if you are in countdown mode for one of my favorite foodie holidays, Cinco De Mayo! Bring on the tacos, guacomole, nachos, margaritas because it is almost time to Fiesta! Needless to say I was very excited to receive an invite for SobeSavvy.com to join other media guests for an early Cinco de Mayo celebration at Cantina 18 in Cameron Village.

Described as a “festive setup featuring Mexican fusion dishes made with local meats & fish, plus craft margaritas“, this restaurant is one that I enjoy coming to with my family when we want fresh, flavorful Mexican food. Just listen to what my daughter, #outandboutAva had to say about their guacomole during a previous visit.


Last night’s exclusive event showcased the launch of Cantina 18‘s new catering menu and I am so excited to share the information with you! Take a look at the amazing eats you can have at your next Mexican themed party or any gathering:

Enjoy the convenience of letting someone else prepare delicious food for you to serve to your family and friends! No matter if you have vegetarians or meat lovers at the party, there will be something for everyone to enjoy!

My favorite bites from last night were the goat cheese guacomole, the house made salsas, the shrimp quesadilla and chicken tinga. Pretty much anything coming out of Chef Jason Smith’s kitchen is going to be AMAZING! Check out my video recap of last night’s event:

Celebrate #NationalTacoDay EVERYDAY @Chilis & Enjoy your choice of 3 ‘Top Shelf’ #Tacos

DISCLAIMER: This is a sponsored post, however 100% of the opinions are my own. 
You’ve heard of “Taco Tuesday” ..it’s a day taco lovers rejoice and enjoy delicious tacos. Well yesterday, Tuesday October 4th was not only Taco Tuesday, but National Taco Day. In honor of this day, I dined at Chili’s to try their exciting taco creations! If you are tired of the same ground beef or chicken tacos then make your way to Chili’s and try their own line of “Top Shelf Tacos“.

They come in trio orders with citrus chili rice & black beans, sliced avocado and house pico de gallo and queso fresco. They have four types: Prime Rib {yup, you read that right!}, Spicy Shrimp, Carnitas and Ranchero Chicken. Here is a close up of my Prime Rib Taco.

You can order 3 of one or mix and match. You can not go wrong with any of these tacos. All fresh and made to order. They had our mouths watering so we wanted something good to drink to go with them. MARGARITAS! Not just any Margarita mind you but one of their premium El Nino Margaritas , hand shaken with Herradura Tequila. Tacos and Tequila are a match made in taste bud heaven and Chili’s pairing is awesome!

Isn’t it great you don’t have to wait until a National Day or Taco Tuesday to have amazing tacos ?! Next time you are in the mood, head to your nearest Chili’s and enjoy Mexico without a passport ! Viva La Chilli’s !!
