Cancun Fiesta Fresh
Cancun Fiesta Fresh in Westport may not be a place to linger or even have a beer, but it’s definitely a spot for quick, no frills, satisfying Mexican fare.
The menu focuses on street tacos, with a choice of marinated beef (asada), BBQ beef (adovada), carnitas, chicken, ground beef, beef tongue or beef cheek. Each is served on a homemade corn tortilla and topped with cilantro and onions. Mild, medium and hot salsas can be added from the simple salsa bar–the medium is a tomatillo salsa, the other two are tomato based, and all three are fresh and lively.
I particularly enjoyed the carnitas bowl, which was actually just a plate of carnitas, beans and rice, with a bit of guacamole and pico de gallo. The pork was extremely lean, tender and properly crisp. The platter is served with hot corn tortillas for making your own taco–with the tomatillo salsa it hit all the right notes. The rice was perfectly prepared and nicely flavored, the beans were the typical refried variety.
