Inspired by the Baja California peninsula – well known for whale watching and sport fishing – in northwestern Mexico, Hombre Cantina sits along Boat Quay – laid back and full of character.
As you walk along Boat Quay, you just can’t miss Hombre, it’s style and atmosphere sets it apart from most of the joints in the area. You can’t help but feel relaxed in the atmosphere, amplified by the rustic and understated decor. A place where you’d fit right in regardless whether you’ve popped in right after a long day in the office or enjoying a lazy evening with no real intention of dressing up.Hombre Cantina boats a wide range of Tequilas as well as artisan Mezcals. Now the Tequilas here are all 100% blue agave – which translates to “this is the good stuff”.
Now we’re all familiar with tequila shots – some of us more so than most – but ‘sipping’ tequilas from what looks suspiciously like a Cognac glass? Well, that’s definitely new to me. I have to say the stuff served is far from poison and oh so smooth – even the standard house tequila.Mezcal, for those unfamiliar, is distilled from the Maguey plant (cousin of the Agave) and is usually taken straight up and not mixed with anything else. While as not as well known as Tequila, its popularity is growing in the United States and Japan.Other than drink, Hombre Cantina serves up authentic Mexican food that’s customisable to your own taste. What’s a cantina without tacos and burritos? At Hombre, you get a choice of Beef, Chicken, Pork, just Veggies or give their signature fish a try.
Tequilas are not just about shots… Some that are worth taking your time to chill, sit and savour – Alex Liu, Hombre Cantina
If you’re into super-foods, give the Cilantro – Lime Quinoa,from the Andean region of South America which is high in both protein and fiber… and it’s gluten-free.
Food and drink come at reasonable prices and if you’re looking for premium Tequila you can’t miss the Herradura or the Don Julio 1942 which goes for about $50-ish a shot.
