Cha Chas Latin Kitchen Lobster Tacos

Today, October 4th is National Taco Day! And to celebrate, Cha Cha's Latin Kitchen in Irvine and Brea are offering a one-day only special: Lobster Tacos! I was beyond thrilled to get to come in to try this exclusive dish, and now you can too and don't forget a delicious margarita! During my visit, I started with chips and homemade salsas, the Cha Cha Fries (Crisp kennebec potatoes, fresh garlic, herbs, smoked chipotle aioli) and Empanadas (Fresh ground masa with picadillo of ground beef, smokey ancho salsa & crema fresca). For my entree, I enjoyed the lobster tacos and had a few bites of the Carne Asada (Grilled, marinated skirt steak, roasted potatoes, poblano peppers, fresh chimichurri). I finished the meal with two desserts, the Churros (Home-made churros, cinnamon sugar, cajeta & raspberry-orange sauces) and Tres Leches Cake (Home-baked chiffon cake, tres leches soaked, strawberry salsa, whipped cream & toasted coconut). Naturally, a visit to Cha Cha's Latin Kitchen is not complete without one (or maybe two? three?) of their delicious margaritas and cocktails. I enjoyed the Watermelon (Fresh Watermelon, Hibiscus Juice, Maestro Dobel Tequila, Black Pepper Agave Nectar), Cha Cha's Margarita (Siete Leguas 100% Blue Agave, Elderflower liqueur, fresh lime, ruby red grapefruit juice) and the Blackberry Serrano Daquiri (Myer's Platinum Rum, fresh blackberries, lime, serrano chile, hibiscus juice). There was not one dish that I didn't like, but be sure to take advantage of this special offer because it's only happening once this year! Check out the menus here: IRVINE and BREA.

On National Taco Day, the restaurant is offering all kinds of festive items including the Lobster Tacos I mentioned above (made with maseca dusted crispy lobster tail, chipotle cabbage slaw, heirloom pico de gallo, avocado, and roasted jalapeno cream) as well as their Short Rib Taco made with guajillo-braised beef, goat cheese, their Wild Mushrooms Taco made with corn, rajas, cotija and avocado salsa, and more! They all pair perfectly with any of the margaritas, including the El Palomar Margarita (also available for one day only) - it's made with fresh serrano chili, orange liqueur, freshly squeezed lime juice, agave nectar, house-made hibiscus tea, and hand-shaken with AsomBroso Blanco 100% blue agave tequila.
