Old Mexico comes to life inside the new Leticia’s Mexican Cocina, now open at Tivoli Village. Diners here can head out on an epicurean tour of Mexico’s most popular regions including Mexico City, Puebla, Guadalajara, and the Mayan Peninsula. A new dish, Chamorro Adobado, a marinated pork shank, heads up the menu, while standbys include camarones al mojo de ajo with shrimp cooked in a garlic butter sauce, costillitas with pork short ribs braised in green tomatillo sauce, quesa tacos with seared Oaxaca and stuffed with grilled shrimp, spinach and mushrooms, and cecina a la tampiqueña with a sirloin topped with sautéed mushrooms and bacon.
Owner Leticia Mitchell outfitted the former home of Cantina Laredo with Dia de Los Muertos decor. The 6,231-square-foot space features two existing patios, as well as a brunch on the weekends, as well as lunch and dinner service.
Her original location, Leticia’s Cocina, remains a northwest destination at 7585 Norman Rockwell Lane since 2009.
