A Basic Introduction to Fine Mexican Cuisine

The ingredients found in Xilantro’s customized menu are savory basics that date back to the 16th Century.

Xilantro’s menu is primarily a fusion of indigenous Mesoamerican cooking with European, especially Spanish, elements. It also incorporates some traditional Tex-Mex favorites, elevating them to new culinary levels.

Mexico is about three times the size of Texas—a veritable cornucopia spanning from north to south.  This is also the reason that the ingredients used in the cuisine reflect different climates and ecosystems.

A large part of Mexican cuisine leans heavily on seafood. Whether it’s whole fish cooked in lime, garlic, oregano, tomatoes and olive oil or shrimp cocktail with a chile dipping sauce.   Xilantro’s  menu boasts a variety of ceviches and aguachiles. Aguachile is Mexico’s version of ceviche (a dish typically made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime, and spiced with ají or chili peppers).



At Xilantro’s, our goal is to introduce our patron’s discerning palate to a fusion fest—one where the interest is in connecting with what was eaten in the pre-hispanic world of the Aztec empire and what is eaten daily in Mexico today.  Our chef loves to experiment with flavors and textures, always bringing his imaginative flair and expertise to every one of his creations.

At Xilantro we strive to bring our customers an endless variety of sumptuous dishes. Starting with things as simple as the versatile tortilla. Tortillas can be used to hold a variety of fillings, topped with salad, used as tasty food scoops, or toasted. We take fresh ingredients, like spices, limes, tomatoes,chiles, avocado and a variety of meats to turn the ordinary tortilla into something extraordinary.
