Authentic Mexican Food at Antojitos Mexicanos

IMG_3478.JPGHave you experienced the authentic Mexican food at Antojitos Mexicanos yet?  They have been in business for 8 ½ years and have recently relocated to Downtown Appleton.  They love the atmosphere of their new location and are really building their customer base.  Antojitos chose their new location, because of all the events downtown.  The interior of the restaurant is also very unique and brings in lots of new customers.  They decided to change the vibe of their restaurant by straying away from the typical colorful walls in favor of a more urban look.  Outside the door, are two eye catching, statues of mariachi band players.  They are very original and make great photo props! 


Antojitos Mexianos’ most popular dishes are chimichangas and burritos.  They also have several signature margaritas including cucumber mint, anchorite, and BMW.  The newest edition to the cocktail list is a “margarita flight”.  This is for those who can’t decide on just one flavor, allowing you to try several at once. 


Gift Certificates are available for purchase.  This is a great gift with the holidays just around the corner.  Walk-ins are also welcomed.  The staff is very friendly and ready to assist you during your experience.  Antojitos Mexicanos would also love to help you and your coworkers celebrate your annual holiday party.  They have plenty of space to accommodate you.  Call or stop in today to inquire.  While you’re there, try one of the menu’s dishes and wash it down with a cold margarita!

Review: Cooking with Sea Salt and Apricot Oil from Farm Market Vendor Mainlea Cooking

MAINLEA COOKING, LLC, a Farm Market vendor located on Oneida St, features Cold Pressed Certified Organic Avocado Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Grapeseed Oil, and Non-GMO Sea Salts for grilling and for seafood.

I had the Firewood Sea Salt as a rub for my tenderloin before grilling it on the gas grill. One can definitely taste the firewood flavor on the steak. It is a very hearty and robust flavor, which would compliment any cut of meat superbly. I loved the taste of my newfound seasoning. The sea salt is to steak, what jelly is to peanut butter. I love the fact that the salts are all natural and have no GMO’s.

I was savoring every bite of my meat, and yet, when I got to the end of my steak, it had me wishing I had more steak. I am grateful my roommate bought a whole jar and I can have that every time I have beef. I’ve been told it is also very good on roasts as well, so I cannot wait to try that sometime.

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 11.53.08 AMNext I sautéed mushrooms in the Apricot Kernel Oil. The oil really seemed to enhance the other dry seasonings I put on the mushrooms. It has a sweet, yet savory flavor. You could smell the apricot in the air while cooking. Sautéed mushrooms have never been such a delight. I kept them separate from my steak as to enjoy all the different flavors this meal brought to the table.

My taste buds were definitely singing praises with this fabulously seasoned meal. I will definitely continue my relationship with this vendor. I can’t wait to buy the other oils and sea salts.
