Are you feeling the amor this Valentine’s Day? Well, if you still need a little help getting into the lovey-dovey spirit, consider heading over to No Mas! Hacienda & Cantina to try their special V-Day menu that lovers can enjoy from now thru Valentine’s! Here’s your chance to ignite your pallet with a specially-curated selection of tasty dishes inspired by the flavors and passions of Mexico.
If you’re a creature of habit and have a hard time trying new things, take my word for it when I tell you – you won’t be disappointed! I was lucky enough to be able to sample the special Valentine’s Day menu at No Mas! Cantina during a private tasting, and I must say that this prix fixe 3-course dinner was beyond delicioso! Prepare your cravings to be crazy in love with this tastefully exotic and authentic Mexican cuisine.
Here are the tasty tidbits from the V-Day menu:
Toast to forever with a Pasion Picante – a festive cocktail mixed with VeeV Açai Liqueur, muddled with fresh mint and lime. For the entrée portion, choose the Ensalada de Pasion – mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, toasted pecans and goat cheese croqueta tossed in a passion fruit vinegreta. Or, turn up the heat with the Camarónes del Fuego – jumbo shrimp and avocado tossed in a jalapeño vinegreta.
Move in to your main course and choose one of three exciting entrees; for a real feast, select the Res Chipotliada – a succulent beef tenderloin with a chipotle chocolate dry rub, served with mixed potatoes gratinado, and an herbed stuffed tomato; or opt for seaside specialty Camarónes Rellenos – baked jumbo shrimp filled with crab stuffing, served alongside cilantro rice, black bean croqueta, and pico de gallo; and land lovers will delight in the Pollo Valentino – grilled chicken breast stuffed with spinach, goat cheese, and sundried tomatoes, with Guajillo cream sauce served with roasted Peruvian potatoes.
Finish with your choice of three decadent desserts, including the Chocolates Enamorados – two chocolate covered strawberries alongside an assortment of our handmade artisan truffles; the creamy and refreshingly fruity white chocolate raspberry cheesecake; or the dark chocolate molten lava cake filled with caramel and pecans and topped with vanilla ice cream.
Curated by Executive Chef Melody Voirin, No Mas! delivers a scrumptious selection of savory servings that would make Cupid jealous with envy. 😛
The best part is, there are two options for the special menu. You can choose to serenade your sweetheart with a 3-course meal for only $35 each! You can also step up the love a notch and choose the “Extra Love” option for $110 total ($65 each). You’ll get the 3-course meal, two made-in-house chocolate truffles and a stunningly beautiful hand-crafted .925 Sterling Silver ring from their special artisan collection! So, if you don’t have time to shop for a special gift for that special someone, No Mas! has you (and her finger) covered. 😉
And while you’re there be sure to stop by the gift shop and furnishing’s gallery. Yes, there’s a gallery dedicated to providing rare works and quirky home furnishings to add fab and flair to your surroundings. Their oasis of offerings are not only unique but authentic, which according to No Mas!, was precisely the plan. You see, “No Mas!” means no more... as in ‘no mass production’… as in you will NOT see these pieces anywhere else.
The vibe overall at No Mas! is fab and perfect for date night dining which makes your eating experience even more enjoyable. Hey, I’m a sucker for great ambiance, and No Mas! delivers big on the atmosphere. When it comes to fare AND flair, No Mas! is one of my fave escapes – which might explain all the events and experiences I’ve had here!
For Valentine’s Day, I definitely recommend trying their special menu which is available now through February 14th, so even if you already have V-Day day plans, you can still stop by No Mas! all week long leading into Valentine’s to cash in on the prix fixe fun! Show your sweetie that you know the true path to their heart… through No Mas!, of course!!! 😉
