Last week, I was thankful to spend the whole week at home in Buffalo. I hadn’t seen my family and friends since Christmas, and I was starting to feel a bit homesick. Though the week went by fast, as it always does, it was a much needed break from “reality.”
When I’m home, it’s a necessity to hit up my favorite food spots. I hadn’t been to this one in a while, so I chose it as the location for my belated birthday dinner.
Cantina Loco is, by far, one of my favorite places in Buffalo for delicious Mexican food. Right in the heart of Allentown, an artsy and eclectic neighborhood in downtown Buffalo, it’s definitely the place to be on any given day. We went on a Wednesday night and it was packed: the sign of a great restaurant.
To drink, I had a Ginger Pineapple margarita. As you can imagine, it was to die for. We got the Nachos Locos as an appetizer: two cheeses, pork, onion, jalapeno, poblano cream and pico — yum! For dinner, I had Carnitas and Skirt Steak tacos, both on freshly-made corn tortillas. Though the Carnitas was a bit too greasy for my liking, the Skirt Steak was one of the best I’ve ever had.
Overall, we had a great experience at Cantina Loco. An important thing worth noting: our waiter, Felix, was so thoughtful and accommodating with my gluten intolerance. He made sure to inform me of which menu items I could and couldn’t have, which was much appreciated. I haven’t found that kind of service everywhere since changing my diet.

Until next time, Buffalo! <3
