If you’re in the mood for some top-notch Mexican fare, then head on down to La Cocina. The restaurant serves Latin-influenced dishes with a coastal spin on them and boasts some of the best drinks along 30A.
Dishes at La Cocina Mexican restaurant are prepared from scratch with only the freshest of ingredients used. For an appetizer, you might want to get the laco salsa flight, a taster of the house’s salsas with charred tomato salsa, charred tomatillo salsa, and pineapple habanero. For your main meal, La Cocina offers a wide variety of tacos: pork belly, camarones, brisket barbacoa, arrachera, chorizo, grilled chicken, lobster, and veggie.
But if you’re not in a taco mood, consider other Mexican classic dishes such as your choice of burritos, empanadas, enchiladas, or traditional fajitas. Or perhaps a quesadilla, as La Cocina offers not just steak and chicken quesadillas but the lobster quesadilla, with its blend of lobster and Gulf shrimp, a cheese blend, chipotle tortilla, red chili aioli, charred pineapple, and jicama salsa. And for dessert, you have your choice of key lime cheesecake with whipped cream and a candied lime or made-from-scratch flan served with blood orange, cocoa crumble and chocolate mousse.
La Cocina Mexican restaurant has a wide selection of margaritas, craft cocktails, wine cocktails, tequilas, wines and bottled beers. Be sure to ask about any seasonal specialties! Lemonade, tea, coffee, sparkling water, bottled water, and various sodas are also offered.
