La Fiesta Cafe is on the corner of bustling Douglas Street, intersecting Broughton St. This is one of my faithful lunch spots, it has always been there for a quick, healthy, fresh plate of Mexican street food. Open for lunch and dinner, this quaint and no-frills cantina is the place to go if you have a hankering for fresh salsa, crisp chimichangas or if you’re daring enough, perhaps even La Fiesta’s deep-fried cheesecake.
My friend and I walked into La Fiesta tonight with hunger spreading us thin, and I knew this was the place to sort us out proper. I decided on a Chipotle wrap with chicken, corn, rice and sour cream(amongst other things packed inside), and mi amigo chose to roll with a burrito. Both entrées came with fresh tortilla chips as a side. There is a salsa and condiment bar tucked into the corner of this cafe, with tomatillo salsa, roasted corn salsa, a variety of spicy ones, and if you’re playing it safe, your standard mild. Both my wrap and my friend’s burrito were packed to maximum capacity, time to dig in.
For both meals, and a drink, the bill came to a mere 20 dollars total.
The service here is blasé in the best of ways, and you can see your food being prepared in the claustrophobic kitchen space. I’ve been here many times and I am always satisfied, particularly my stomach. It’s simple and reliable. Try it out!
