I’m typically not a fan of Mexican fare on the Strip because the outrageous prices tend to lead to disappointment and regret. But, Canonita proved to be a pleasant surprise with it’s quality ingredients and above average execution. Located  in the Grand Canal area of the Venetian with much of the narrow restaurant overlooking the man made waterways and sitting under the faux sky, the ambiance can be surprisingly relaxing.

Their drink list is full of custom cocktails and margaritas. The pineapple infusion margarita ($11) was excellent with tropical flavors and hints of vanilla. For those that can’t decide, they’ve got a margarita flight ($15) with a classic,  jalapeño, and pineapple version.

Plenty of popular dishes can be found on the menu like flautas ($12), three per order, all crispy and tightly rolled with ample amount of ground beef inside topped with an avocado-tomatillo sauce, lettuce and quest fresco. The entrees were quite good. The wild mushroom enchiladas ($21), covered in a poblano cream sauce, were an excellent vegetarian option. The Santa Rosa pork barbacoa ($21) was a hefty portion of fork-tender meat topped with a slightly acidic sauce, surrounded by fluffy and buttery cilantro rice and accompanied by tortillas to make your own tacos.

You’ll pay typical Strip prices for the food, ambiance, and location. That’s nothing new. But, if you’re in need of Mexican fare in this part of town, there aren’t many more I’d recommend before Cañonita.

  6. This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want?HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!

  7. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

  8. After study a few of the blog posts on your website now, and I truly like your way of blogging. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website list and will be checking back soon. Pls check out my web site as well and let me know what you think.

Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
