From the hand painted tiles to the handmade tortillas, La Fondita Restaurant reflects the traditions of Mexico. A tall glass wall seperates diners from the ladies who prepare your meal. Food like your abuelita makes, if you have one! La Fondita is the place for Mexican home-style cooking. Luis Miguel and Vicente Fernandez croon romantic ballads from the speakers just for you.
Bright red Jamaica is the drink to start with. Tangy and sweet, it is the right complement to a plate of enchiladas, or a bowl of Pozole. Everything you expect is on the menu; tacos, tostadas, chicarrones and flautas. Sure there are lots of places that serve the same things. The key is finding the place with just the right authentic flair, something La Fondita excells at.
With a menu full of favorites from the Mexican kitchen, La Fondita offers Pie de Guayaba for desert. A large piece of dense cheese cake with a shortbread crust, it is topped with a smooth lemony paste of Guayaba fruit. There may be a better desert (postre) in Rocky Point, but I think this is the one to beat.
For late night fun, there is a seperate, attached bar area with the feel of an old time Cantina. La Fondita Restaurant is located on Freemont Blvd. Near the Red Creoss.
