Seco’s Latin Cuisine is a cozy little restaurant tucked away in the rice village area but not quite in the midst of the congested shopping center, so if you want to try out a new place and do not feel like dealing with crowd then Seco’s Latin Cuisine is for you.
The restaurant is located at 2536 Nottingham Street and the hours of operations are from Sunday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
The place is fairly new and it took over a café and it did not change the décor too much and added a small corner bar, the space is small and cozy and has an average of ten to fifteen tables so it is meant to be a cozy environment. The only drawback that it has it is parking since there is not a lot of space but you can try parking on the streets but always be aware of towing signs. It definitely is a great place for a romantic date.
They have an extensive appetizers list where you can order one of their queso flameados such as the Portobello with onions and roasted poblano peppers or the shrimp one for $ for $7.99, or the empanada which is baked pastry stuffed with chicken or beef with onion and green olives for $2.50, or the red fish and salmon skeweres for $6.99 just to mention a few.
Their entrées are very good as well and the food tastes very fresh and you can order the pollo lily which comes breaded with pecans and topped with a cream sauce and mustard, or the rollos de pollo which is chicken stuffed with spinach and shrimp with a chipotle sauce, or even the pollow margarita which comes topped with green onions, jalapenos, tomatoes and mushrooms and flamed tequila and lime juice for $10.99.
However if you wish to have some enchiladas for your entrée then go with the Vallarta which comes with shrimp and spinach and topped with a tomatillo sauce, or the Suiza which comes filled with chicken, onion and roasted poblano sauce for $8.99. And then there are the quesadillas and you can order the veggie ($7.99), chicken or beef with onions, roasted poblano and cheese or even the delicious one with shrimp for $9.99.
The plates are quite big and if you still have some room for dessert go with the tres leche to get the Latin cuisine full experience.
