I’ve been to Round Corner Cantina many times before, it’s one of my favorite places in my favorite neighborhood, Lawrenceville. It’s a tiny bar that serves good tacos and excellent guaqamole. When the weather is nice, you can sit outside in their courtyard. I was first turned on to this place by a friend of a friend who was from Arizona. He said that this was the only decent so-cal style Mexican food that he’d had since moving to Pittsburgh. According to him, it wasn’t perfect, but it was close.
Jen was craving some Mexican tonight so we decided to go back to this favorite place. I’ve tried the mahi mahi, the pork belly, the carne asada, the chicken and now the lamb tacos here. I’ve enjoyed each and every one of them. As you may already know, I hate turning my flash on in restaurants, so I apologize for how dark everything is!
And their guaqamole is one of my favorites. It’s super simple, just some lime, salt and pepper, cilantro and some other seasoning (probably chile and cumin). They serve it with homemade chips that are awesomely salty and fresh.
I had to have a margarita tonight also… okay, I had two. It was a two drink kind of night, what can I say. I needed to get some stuff off my chest, and Jen’s the person that I can do that with. Thank you Jen. I love how they serve these, the mason jars are a nice touch. They are really fresh tasting. I have to say, I probably enjoy these more when the weather is warm, but I’ll take a good margarita any time that I can.
This really is one of my favorite places to go to. If you are looking for some good tacos and guacamole around Pittsburgh, I highly recommend Round Corner Cantina.
