Let the fiesta begin
Under The Volcano
Diners may select from traditional dishes such as fajitas and burritos with either chicken, beef or seafood or may opt for a taste of adventure with Lime Tequila grilled chicken breast or drunken shrimp. The chicken is tender and the beef savoury, a welcome escape from the dry, poorer quality often found in more commercial restaurants.
For those with larger appetites, Under The Volcano provides a combination of either quesadillas, enchiladas or flautas with pinto beans and natural brown rice for only $10.95. Also, vegetarians need not worry about menu limitations as many of the entrees can be selected with vegetables instead of meat.
Saving room for dessert is a necessity at the restaurant. The richness of the Kahlua Mousse, with its decadent dark chocolate and whipped cream, cannot be avoided. Then again, neither can the breathtaking Ice Cream Crepe with its noticeably luscious French vanilla ice cream, warm crepe and copious amounts of hot fudge sauce.
If you'd like to have some of the restaurant's flavour at home, keep in mind take-home foods like the Volcano Salsa or Cayenne and Jalapeno Relish are obtainable for reasonable prices.
A little out of the way, Under The Volcano may be difficult for some to reach without their own transportation. However, don't let the location sway any attempt to visit. The prices are consistent with the quality provided and the staff are friendly and attentive.
The choices at Under The Volcano are irresistible and the food succulent; dining there is a highly recommended experience that should not be missed.
