Lunch Under $10 at Cantina Laredo
|Cantina Laredo's Tortilla Soup is poured table side over crispy strips and fresh avocado.|
Cantina Laredo is an upscale Mexican eatery in Gilbert's SanTan Mall with some choices for the under $10 budget.
The interior is clean and sophisticated, modern but not too "southwest". Our
server immediately put a basket a chips with two bowls of house-made salsa on the table. One salsa was cold in temperature, and mild in heat; and the other was warm with a medium heat. Both were tasty, but we could not stop eating the warm one, with its golden hue and smoky flavor.

The Sopa de Tortilla ($8.99 for the bowl) arrived at the table in a metal carafe with a bowl of crispy tortilla strips and sliced fresh avocado. The server poured the chicken soup over the tortilla strips at the table to help keep them crisp as long as possible -- a nice touch.
