EWS Lunch Special: Cantina Agave

I know Cantina Agave may feel like a bit of a ‘duh’ Eat Well Shanghai pick, but come on people, we got lots of newbies in town.  In fact, I met a beautiful new family from Texas and the first thing they were asking for was Tex Mex and while there are some options in Shanghai, I say Cantina Agave really tops the list, especially for tex mex (Maya rocks for more traditional Mexican).  And wow, holy lunch special!  45rmb for a ginormous entree and a drink.   Your drink could even be a margarita or beer, although EWS policy does not condone drinking at lunch.  But, you are all adults so do what you need to do.

I met up with my chef wonder twins (who don’t like to be called twins, I just found out) Ignatius and Anthony from Movable Feasts for lunch the other day and check out this amazing salad I had.  It was super fresh, nice crisp veggies topped with any meat or veggie you may want.  Options included grilled veggies, spicy pork, shredded chicken in a mild green sauce, spicy beef tongue, etc.  I had mine with carne asada, which is just a nice grilled steak.   Top your deliciousness with any one of their fresh salsas and pico de gallos.

Mr. Eat Well Shanghai, my husband, loves the burritos and Ignatius was digging his soft tacos.  Spot by and let me know what you think.  This nice lady will be happy to see you!
