I stumbled onto La Macarena years ago after rummaging through the Spoons ‘N Spice store which also is located in the Ivy Place shopping center. What luck! Grab yourself a table and order an icy cold Corona, nibble on good house-made chips and salsa before you tuck into the bodacious carnitas platter, a serving of chili Colorado or the excellent shrimp tostadas. La Macarena chef/owner Tomas Mesa specializes in seafood dishes, so the fried red snapper, ceviche, snapper Veracruz and shrimp a la plancha are all excellent … and cheap! Very friendly service, too, although the ability to speak some Spanish will help expedite your dining experience.
