Food Review | No Mas Cantina Atlanta Valentine’s Day Menu Thursday 11 February, 2016
This Valentine’s Day, No Mas! Hacienda & Cantina is igniting passions with their exciting evening escape to Old Mexico, including a flavorful prix fixe menu curated by executive chef Melody Voirin, followed by the option to take home house-made chocolate truffles and .925 Mexican Silver. In Mexico, as in the United States, Valentine’s Day, or “El Día del Amor y la Amistad,” is an occasion to shower loved ones with declarations and expressions of love, passion and friendship. In honor of this tradition, No Mas! Hacienda & Cantina, located in Atlanta’s historic and art district of Castleberry Hill, is offering a specially-curated menu inspired by the flavors and passions of Mexico.
As the foodie you know I am now, I really enjoyed this Mexican version of Valentine’s Day. Sometimes the Lobster and Steak Meal can be a little cliche, so this was a great mix up. All of the meals was made with love and true authentic Mexican upscale cuisine to indulge in with a love one. Exotic and sensual meals to make this holiday a memorable one!

Fresh mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, toasted pecans, and goat cheese croquette tossed in passion fruit vinaigrette.
