Cha Chas Latin Kitchen
In need of a margarita? or 2? or 3?
CHA CHAS IT IS!
We highly recommend this spot if you are looking for a casual date night or a night out with some good friends! Located in Irvine - Cha Cha's Latin Kitchen offers Latin American and Mexican inspired cuisine. There is an indoor-outdoor full bar that offers a wide range of handcrafted cocktails and an extensive selection of tequila. You know what that means...
HELLOOOO TEQUILA TIFF! Fancy seein' you again ;)
The ambiance of the restaurant is perfect- modern, relaxed, and fun. We prefer their patio seating (which you can reserve for in advance). On cold days, try grabbing a table that has a fireplace. Don't worry if you can't get one of those though, they have built-in heaters which end up making the entire patio area warmer than inside. Puurfectoo!
Now to the most important part, of course....FOOD!!!
We're a sucker for nice ambiance and all, but food is literally what keeps us going. Cha Cha's definitely does not disappoint! They offer complimentary chips and salsa to start out with. Be careful not to spoil your meal though because let us warn you...the chips and salsa are ADDICTING! Below is a list of some of our favorite dishes:
Carne Asada - Grilled skirt steak with chimichurri sauce (MUST GET!)
Fresh Seafood Caldo - Variety of seafood and angel hair pasta tossed in a tomato broth (HIGHLY RECOMMEND)
Short Rib Enchiladas - Braised short ribs with goat cheese and black beans (Good, but would recommend sharing as it is quite heavy)
3 Tacos - Choice of chicken, steak, or carnitas tacos on corn tortillas served with beans and rice (Good, but not too special)
Fresh Manila Clams - Sauteed with garlic and white wine sauce
Ceviche Sampler - Taste of shrimp ceviche and ahi
Cha Cha Fries - If you like chipotle aioli sauce, highly recommended!
And for the finale... you know we (*ahem Trish) are coupon nazi's. We're always on the prowl for good deals and luckily for you guys, we've listed them here for you.
