Three Must Order Dishes from Cantina 18's Fall Menu in Cameron Village

Just this week Cantina 18 in Cameron Village introduced their FALL menu and they have added several new dishes to their list of offerings. Chef-proprietor, Jason Smith, relentlessly searches for the freshest seasonal ingredients from North Carolina farms and purveyors for his take on on Southern-Tex cuisine. I was lucky enough to sample a few of these new dishes this week and wanted to share my three favorite must order plates that you won't want to miss.

1. 18 Seaboard Fried Green Tomatoes.
These tomatoes are perfectly fried and served with their amazing housemade pimento cheese dip. This dish is a great starter or snack with drinks and friends on the patio or at the bar.

2. Cantina 18 ACP.
Arroz con pollo is a traditional dish of Spain and Latin America, closely related to paella. Cantina 18 ACP is served with peppers and onions, verde rice, queso and tons of fresh avocado! Its a hearty meal and full of delicious flavor. You can also choose either chicken or shrimp.

3. Hawaiian Pork Belly Quesadilla.
This delicious Hawaiian pork belly quesadilla is made with pepper jack, charred pineapple, grilled jalapenos, and topped with chipotle crema. These quesadillas are so full of flavor and kick. It does lean on the spicy side so if you love spicy you will love this, if you are not into spicy but love this combination perhaps the jalapenos can be requested on the side.

Cantina 18 has a great outdoor patio for dining and enjoying the cooler temperatures finally arriving in Raleigh! I also wanted to mention that Cantina 18 has drink specials every Monday through Friday including $3.25 Mexican Bottled Beers on Thursday! I recommend dropping by for lunch or dinner soon, and trying out some of these tasty and creative new Fall dishes happening now in Cameron Village.

#CVTRENDREPORT: I'm excited to partner again with Cameron Village this FALL to feature some of the great merchants in the Village and highlight some 2018 Fall trends and great "hidden gems". I love shopping, dining, drinking, exploring local and it's been an amazing opportunity to get to know these merchants, their stories and their passion for what they do!
