Japi Cinco de Mayo

Hope you are out there getting your Mexican eat and drink on! :)

We tried Paquito's Mexican Restaurant in Aventura for our authentic Mexican Cinco de Mayo lunch. It's in a strip mall, but don't hold it against this place, it's Zagat rated and has valet parking...fancy!

I found it by looking for "Mexican" at and with the numerous positive reviews, i knew this was going to be the place to get a little festive.

The atmosphere was super 'authentic', really, i felt like i was in 'Mexico' at Epcot, lol, lots of bright colors and just a ton of nic nacks everywhere.

The food was really good, but the presentation, not so much. we started with a shredded chicken Mexican pizza. i ordered the carne asada from the mi abuelita's recetas (my grandmother's recipes) section of the menu and my hubby had the enchiladas. everything was delicious and tasted like the kitchen was full of abuelitas! :)

And this margarita was damn good too!

It's definitely worth a trip to check it out.
