It’s ugly and humid in Coronado right now. I live in a 1920s house that does not have AC. Ugh! That’s why the Loews Coronado Bay Resort is a perfect getaway. It’s just a short drive down the Strand. The beach is cool, don’t get me wrong. But nothing beats lounging around by the pool on a hot day.
Tell me you don’t just want to dive in? Cannon ball!!!! Lol. Ok, probably not exactly like that. Us, girls, have to make a graceful entrance into the pool… and QUICKLY while no one is looking. 🙂
La Cantina at the Loews Coronado is the restaurant by the pool. And you all know me, food and drinks are always on my mind. Besides, what’s a staycation without sampling some of their goodies and adult beverages?
Street Tacos ($3 each)
There are three options – ono, carnitas, barbacoa. With a little cheese on top. Yum! What a great place to have Taco Tuesday!
Cane Rum, lime, mint, sugar. This is a “Buy-by-the-Pitcher” drink. Just plan on spending the night because you won’t want to go home.
Watermelon Salad ($12)
Watermelon, tomato, feta, frisee, citrus dressing. This salad was the best thing I had at La Cantina. It was light and refreshing. A classic combination of bright flavors. Definitely yummy.
Premium Margarita ($11)
Patron Silver Tequila on the rocks. You can buy this one by the pitcher too. Cheers to that!
Pulled Pork Slider ($16)
Pulled pork, coleslaw, tobacco onions, tater tots. Tangy BBQ sauce. The menu says “slider,” but it is the size of a regular burger or sandwich.
Cucumber Margarita ($13)
Tequila, cucumber, Triple Sec, lime, agave nectar. This margarita went down so fast. Can you blame me?
Bacon, lettuce, tomato, turkey, avocado served with crispy tater tots. Not my personal favorite, but I know my son would like the bacon.
Chess anyone? If there’s one game that reminds me of my family, it’s chess. We used to play all the time as kids. You could easily spend an entire afternoon at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort – swimming, napping, eating, drinking, chessing. LOL. Is that even a word?
Volleyball in the pool. FUN! I soooo need to go back…
