Great news for Disney Springs and Mexican food fans, Frontera Cocina opens today June 27th! I’ve been waiting for about a year to try this place and now I finally can!
Frontera is the creation of Chef Rick Bayless of Bravo TV’s “Top Chef Masters,” and who has highly rated National Public Television Series, “Mexico–One Plate at a Time.” It will serve authentic Mexican cuisine, focusing on fresh ingredients, including hand-made torillas…not that store-bought garbage! Look at how good this looks…
- Chips and Salsa (I’m sure they will be made in house)
- Bacon Guacamole (that’s right..read it again!)
- Tortilla Soup (with jack cheese, onions, tortilla strips and lime with chicken)
- Coctel “Verde or Rojo” ( blue shrimp, scallops in a verde or rojo salsa, with lime and avocado)
- Queso Fundito (Cheesy fondue goodness with onions and roasted poblanos)
- Red Chile Chicken Enchilladas (braised chipotle chicken, jack cheese and crispy onions
- Carnitas (slow cooked pork shoulder with garlic lime, cotija cheese, re-fried black beans, guacamole, red onions and salsa verde)
- Shrimp Mojo de Ajo (blue shrimp in a slow cooked garlic, chicken broth, olive oil, lime and chipotle
- Carne Asada (natural Black Angus Steak, re-fried black beans with cotija cheese, carmalized plantains with queso and tomatillo salsa)
- And a vast selection of Tacos and Tortas
Deserts include: Pecan Pie Bar, Plantano Sundae and Coconut Lime Quattro Leches
The interior looks amazing as well, very chic and modern:
Also the Bar will have a wide variety of drinks, with the focus being…Tequila and Margaritas!!! yummmmy
There’s also going to be a Grab and Go Window, serving Guacamole and Chips, Braised Port Shoulder Tacos, and Beef Barbacoa Tacos. It’s not a lot of offerings but if you are walking and have a quick Mexican urge it should do the trick!
Overall this is a much welcome addition to Disney Springs, you can never go wrong with authentic Mexican! Rick Bayless is an amazing chef and I can’t wait to see what he does with this place and try these amazing dishes! See you soon!
