The menu at Taqueria Cañonita brings you Mexico City soul food — and this isn’t exactly your traditional Mexican cuisine, but instead, the essence of the culture and food techniques of Mexico City presented to you on appetizing plates inside The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino. Appetizers at the Las Vegas restaurant include chips and salsa and the Ceviche Trio, which has variations like ahi tuna with cantaloupe and chipotle vinaigrette, Veracruzano with capers and cherry peppers, and a shrimp-and-crab ceviche with sangrita sauce. You’ll also have soups, such as a Tarascan Soup, and salads like the Manchego Spinach Salad.
Under entrées, you’ll see lists of platos fuertes and cañonita clásicos. Platos fuertes brings you the Santa Rosa Pork Barbacoa, which comes with cilantro rice, black beans and a chipotle barbecue sauce, and the Aztec Bone-in New York Steak, an ancho-chocolate rub 16-ounce steak with blackened searrano and crab cornbread with a Huitlacoche-truffle butter. The cañonita clásicos section presents the Mexico City Enchiladas, which you can order with chicken or beef, and are served with lettuce, queso fresco, tomatoes, cilantro rice, black beans and the chef’s sauce. This menu also features the Chicken Burrito with sautéed peppers, cheese, salsa verde, cilantro rice and black beans.
Taqueria Cañonita also offers group-dining menus. Order the most basic group package, which includes multiple courses with chips and salsa, salad, entrées and dessert; or a slightly more elaborate one that comes with an additional soup course. A three-course banquet lunch will cost only $30 per person, and comes with multiple courses; and cocktail receptions can accommodate parties of up to 700 people and include drinks, a taco station, appetizers and quesadillas. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the flavors of the Mexico City soul food Taqueria Cañonita serves — and its reasonable price tag.
