Guests love the restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner
Carboncitos is located on site at Hotel Cielo featuring traditional Mexican dishes for the inexperienced or experienced traveler. Some dishes are from the chefs grandmother, other dishes use Mexican ingredients in contemporary and fusion dishes. Wow! Super chido as we say in Mexico (meaning super cool). Salsas are the staple to all of the dishes, both fresh and cooked, with fish, chicken, chiles and beef. Wow, wow, wow.
Having a great restaurant and bar in the hotel has its benefits, for us and for the guests. Cold beers always await on a hot day, sometimes for us in the middle of the day….those are on the extraordinary hot days. Margaritas can be made morning, noon and night, and many people have experienced their first Mexican meal at Carboncitos. They did admit that after having a true Mexican meal, not TexMex or nachos, a real Mexican meal, they were hooked. Fresh food cooked at the moment with clean flavors and fresh ingredients.
Changing perceptions about Mexican cuisine
The main ingredients used in Mexican cuisine is lime, cilantro (coriander), corn, tomatoes, avocados, chicken, pork, fish, shrimp onions, chilies (sweet to hot and made to order) fresh cheese and eggs. You would be amazed at the variety of dishes that can be made with these basic ingredients. Take a chicken dish for an example. This can be done with a sweet hot salsa, a chunky cold salsa, a chunky cold salsa with pineapple or mango, sauteed chicken with strips of chiles (sweet chiles) and onions, chicken marinated in sour oranges and achiote chiles (not spicy but good, good, good) and the list goes on. One switch in an ingredient can change the flavor and experience of any dish. This is why true Mexican cuisine is so good and exciting! Good bye Texmex and North American nachos! Hello fresh flavors and new food experiences.
