May 11th, 2016 by REW Blog Team

Welcome to Restaurant Equipment World’s restaurant review – on today’s menu is Cocina 214 Mexican Kitchen & Bar. Cocina is Spanish for kitchen and 214 is for the area code in Dallas – thus the name Cocina 214 was born.

A trendy and comfortable atmosphere greets you as you arrive at Cocina 214, a great place for intimate dining, family gatherings or large events in their private dining area. The patio provides an elegant, yet quaint dining area for beautiful evenings out on the town and the bar is stock full of your favorite cocktail ingredients along with a generous variety of beer and wine. So grab your favorite drink, join the fun and get ready for some authentic Tex-Mex here in beautiful downtown Winter Park, Florida.

Start off with a plate of fried avocado bites – lightly breaded haas avacados fried and served with chipotle cream dipping sauce or try some fresh guacamole with haas avacados, onions, jalapenos, tomatoes and cilantro. No Tex-Mex meal should be started without crispy homemade chips and zesty salsa, order a salsa trio and get a sampling of all the flavors. Don’t forget the queso – a delicious blend of cheeses and spice to get you started on the right foot.

Get ready for your Tex-Mex adventure. Cocina 214’s menu is full of Tex-Mex delights. Tamales, burritos, quesadillas, enchiladas and a house specialty The 214 Ceviche made with snapper, serrano peppers, red onion, tomato, citrus and avocado – a must try! In the mood for a taco – the Don Carlos is blackened mahi tacos with coastal slaw, fresh, sliced avocado, red bell peppers, and jalapenos topped with a light citrus dressing and served with black beans and rice. Muy bueno!
