Ah, the Pocono Mountains – a region celebrated for its lush landscapes, adventure trails, and now, a culinary treasure that transcends the typical Mexican fare. Have you ever been to a Mexican restaurant that doesn’t serve burritos? Enter La Posada & Felix’s Cantina.
Confused? Allow me to embark on a gastronomic journey through time and tradition. The cuisine at La Posada delves into the Yucatan Peninsula, a place with deep Mayan Indian roots. Forget your standard burritos and tacos; here, you’re invited to savor ancient Mayan dishes like “Salbutes” and “Tacos Cochinita.”
“Salbutes,” translating to “Small Stuffed” in Mayan, is a tantalizing deconstructed taco served on a puffy tortilla. The Cochinita Pibil, meanwhile, is a dance of tangy, slow-roasted pork, marinated in citrus and exotic spices. A bite transports you straight to the ancient Mayan kitchens.
The culinary excitement doesn’t end there. Chef Miguel, ever-ambitious, has recently partnered with acclaimed chef Roberto Solis, a name synonymous with Mexican culinary innovation. Mr. Solis has been featured on “Taco Chronicles” on Netflix as well as “Searching for Mexico” with Eva Longoria on CNN. Together, they’ve crafted two distinct dishes to be featured in La Posada’s autumn menu, starting September 2023.
Apart from the rich culinary experience, La Posada also offers an intimate boutique lifestyle hotel. The atmosphere is soaked in tradition, comfort, and unique flair, making it an exceptional escape from the norm.
In my travels, I’ve tasted a multitude of flavors and stayed in a myriad of hotels, but La Posada & Felix’s Cantina stands out as a culinary landmark in the Poconos. It’s not merely a restaurant; it’s a gateway to a time-honored culinary tradition.
Visit Milford, explore the Pocono Mountains, and allow your taste buds to embark on an unforgettable Mexican adventure. La Posada awaits, ready to elevate your expectations and redefine your understanding of Mexican cuisine.
