Late Lunching at Cantina Alley

May 10, 2017

The alley-way entrance to Cantina Alley

Unassumingly tucked away in the alley off 24th and J streets, sits Sacramento’s new Cantina Alley. Every bit as charming as it sounds, it whisks you into the very heart of Mexico. The bar is stocked with a huge selection of mezcals, tequilas, and even craft beers imported from Mexico (the only bar with craft Mexican beers in Northern California). The gracious bartenders were exciting to talk with, as they chatted about the food and drinks on and off the menu.

The michelada, with its pork rind garnish was both gorgeous and tasty. The mezcalita, delicious. The margarita, also delicious (and hey, some of us are margarita connoisseurs). The stand-out food was the veggie taco with sweet potato (don’t even get me started on how many we devoured), but the elote was what sealed the deal, one bite and you’ll be craving this grilled corn all summer.

A short walk over from our office, we are already anticipating our next visit.
