Cadillac Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar at Golden Nugget in Las Vegas is a contemporary Mexican restaurant and sports lounge offering Mexican food, over 70 boutique Tequilas and numerous high definition flat screen TVs. They offer happy hour which runs daily from 4-7PM. During the happy hour, select alcoholic drinks and tacos and appetizers $3-$8.
I came here for Happy Hour at 6PM after doing Happy Hour at Red Sushi.
– Tejas Carnitas Tacos – $5.99 – Tender pork topped with marinated onions, queso fresco, chipotle sauce, cilantro and Monterey Jack cheese
This taco was recommended by the server, and it was very delicious. You get 2 tacos for the price, which makes it $3 a piece. The pork was very tender and flavourful. I love the rest of the toppings they put. It really went well together! You can choose between crispy or soft corn tortillas. The server didn’t ask which one I wanted, so I ended up getting the default which is soft corn tortillas.
– Ahi Tuna Tacos – $7.99 – Ahi Tuna, ponzu sauce, pickled ginger, cucumber & jicama slaw topped with green onions and sesame seeds. Served in fried wontons tacos
This taco sort of reminded me of the Cajun Tuna Taco from Ebisu in Toronto because of the use of fried wonton as taco shell. They actually gave a lot of ahi tuna. However, I found the pickled a bit too much as it overpowered the taste of the tuna, and everything else in the taco. I told the staff who gave the bill, when she asked how the food was, about the ginger.
– Sangria Swirl – $4 – Famous Margaritas
Sangria made into a slushee. This was such a refreshing drink, and I like how well done the slush was – it was smooth and didn’t have chunks of ice.
