While it's a tad pricey, Cilantro's boasts large helpings, complimentary Spanish rice, and soft tacos with chunky guacamole, sour cream, and chopped tomatoes that will keep you and your refrigerator stuffed for days. Try the chicken enchilada, wrapped in a blue corn tortilla and smothered in cheese, or the shrimp fajita served on a skewer over onions, green peppers, and radicchio and covered in cilantro for a spicy kick. Like it hot? Go for the spicy habanero wings, the operative word being "spicy."
