I was invited to Redondo Taqueria for a tasting of their popular menu items. This was my first visit to the eclectic Mexican restaurant located at Newport on the Levee and I’m grateful that the tasting helped me to know what I will want to order for future visits.
So what did we eat?
First, we started with Chips and Salsa which included guacamole and grilled pineapple salsa. I normally would not have selected pineapple salsa but it was so good that I couldn’t stop eating it!
Next up, Chicken Tortilla Soup with avocado, pico de gallo and sour cream. This is a great menu option if you want something that feels a little lighter.
For drinks, we sampled the Margarita and the Red and White Sangria. I enjoyed them all. I kept on switching my preferences between the Sangrias. The Red was sweeter than the White if you tend to have a preference..
One of my favorite items from the evening wasn’t originally on the tasting menu. The “Inside Out Tamale” (made with sweet corn cakes, roasted tomatillo salsa, chipotle crema, avocado,cotija cheese) was something that I normally would not order because of the absence of meat, but it was really delicious and it would definitely be something that I would order again.

We tried the tacos next -Pescado (Mahi, avocado, citrus slaw, tomatillo aioli, cheddar and enchilada cheeses) and Carnitas (pineapple salsa, pickled onions, lettuce, cotija cheese.) Another great option!
The last round of food we sampled were the Fry Bread Tacos (Beef Machaca, toasted tomatillo salsa, lettuce, pico de gallo, cotija cheese) and the Enchiladas (Beef Machaca) and (Chicken Tinga) served with two types of beans. I’ll be honest and say I was running out of room in my stomach at this point and just took a delicious bite of each.
Believe me, we were beyond FULL when we left! The food was excellent and I would recommend all of the items that we tried. So now that I’ve got you craving Mexican food, you might as well find out for yourself!
