La Rosa is a Mexican spot situated in Menlyn. They make use of only fresh, high quality ingredients to create exciting and tastebud tingling dishes.
16.05 2019 There is a new Mexican in town. Time Square South Africais now home to the new branch of La Rosa Mexican Grille - Time Square
We got to experience the opening evening, with drinks, and delicious eats, and festivities. Great welcome from all the La Rosa and Times Square staff. Funky decor on the walls, Sombrero Lights adorn the ceilings, and Tequila at the bar. What more can you ask for. Food. We tasted a bit of everything, the Jalapeno Croquetta, Taquitos, Spicy Lamb Meatballs, Nachos and Ceviche just for starters. The Meatballs are always a firm favourite and the Ceviche was a refreshing surprise. Washed down by a house Margarita.
Mains were a combination of Vegetarian Quesadillas and Tacos namely - slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder; slow braised achieve Pork; Spicy Braised Beef Short Rib. If you not one for all the Carb loaded goodness, they have started adding bowls on the menu, Chicken and Calamari bowls filled with healthy goodness.
Last but not least, Churros. I must say the flavour of the churros is the best I've had in a while but still a bit too thick and doughy for my liking.
Great spot if you at the casino looking for something new to try.
Thanks to all for a lovely evening. Wishing you all the best in your new home.
