The Dinner Club Meets “Cantina”
Posted by bhamfoodscoop on June 30, 2010
On Friday night, the dinner club met at “Cantina” in Pepper Place, which is in downtown Birmingham. The interior of the restaurant is large and festive; it seems to have an old-world, classic Spanish influence. For example, there are burned candles, lanterns, wooden seats, wooden tables, rusted wrought iron seats, and rusted wrought iron tables spread throughout the restaurant. Where ever you look there is a large flat screen TV, and when I went they were all showing the “World Cup” soccer game. Lastly, the menu is diverse and has a Latin American flavor.
About 17 people showed up to the monthly dinner club social, and we had a wonderful time! We made one long table out of several tables, and we were all able to sit together. It seems like everyone ordered something different from the other, and I had one of my favorite dishes from here, the “Fish Taco” with “Sweet Potato Chips”. The taco came with a soft flour tortilla, egg washed tilapia filet, slaw, avocado, cilantro mayo, and chile de arbol salsa. This dish tasted well and was lite and filling. I was so busy taking pictures of the other dinner club members food, that I didn’t get to capture my own. However, below are pictures of some of what they ordered.
We definitely enjoyed “Cantina” and gave it a rating of 9.0. The members and myself gave it rave reviews and we were pleased with every aspect!
