Cochinita tacos and other regional Mexican dishes delight the taste buds.
Glenview might soon be called the spicy suburb as Mercado Cocina + Cantina, a new modern Mexican restaurant, opens its doors. Think you know Mexican food? Think again, because Executive Chef “Yanni” Sanchez is bringing in dishes and specialties from all seven regions of Mexico. With tasty menu items like chicken and mole ($17), Barbacoa burrito ($12), duck buñuelos ($11) and three types of tacos, this is not your typical Mexican restaurant. Sanchez’s inspiration from her own Mexican heritage is infused in all the specialty cuisine at Mercado Cocina + Cantina. The unique menu will change based on seasonality and availability of ingredients to spice up your taste buds. 2300 Lehigh Ave., restomercado.com
