Inspired by Mexican street food, Cascabel is a classy taqueria joint. Its tacos are a sophisticated step up from traditional comida de la calle (street food) but the casual, counter-style atmosphere is laid-back and humorous. Mexican wrestling figures dot the walls, counters and table tops – loads of fun for kids to play with (and there's a kids menu). Adults will appreciate the cold beers, affordable wine by the glass, hot chilies and dishes such as quinoa with frijoles, citrusy fish tacos, tacos with shrimp, or tongue, or slow-roasted Berkshire pork butt, or big platters of roast chicken, rice and beans, and churros (cinnamon doughnuts) for dessert.
