Valentine’s Day/El Día del Amor y la Amistad

Posted in Holidays

If you love the warmth of Mexican food and culture, then you will enjoy the richness of El Día del Amor y la Amistad. Valentine's Day is celebrated in a variety of cultures, and the Mexican approach is focused on fun and romance. Men and women enjoy an exchange of cards and gifts. Children create little tokens of affection for their parents and classmates. Roses and heart-shaped balloons grace the street corners and tienda displays. Of course, the best way to complete the day in Mexican style is with a hearty Mexican dinner.

Traditional appetizers include fresh tortilla chips and spicy salsas. You'll also want to consider something more sensational like ceviche to tantalize guests or a loved one. Fresh flour tortillas are also essential in any Mexican meal. Mattitos can prepare an appetizing soup to start the festivities as well.

Hearty main dishes for your celebration can range from spicy enchiladas to the more exotic mole. We offer a variety of favorite food options for the younger crowd if your celebration will include children. Burritos, quesadillas and chimichangas are great. If your group is composed strictly of couples, then options like fajitas, fish tacos and chile rellenos are excellent. You can't leave out staples like rice and beans. Even on El Día del Amor y la Amistad, these are essential parts of dinner fare. Of course, there are wonderful desserts to think about adding to your menu. Flan is a wonderful Valentine's Day choice.

There are many options for party planning and banquets that can encompass the heart of the celebration with Mexican flair. You don't have to be in Mexico to appreciate the thrill of these savory foods, a serenading mariachi group and great company. Enjoy your day of romance with delicious food and wonderful company. Mattitos is an excellent option whether you want to host a banquet at our site or enlist our help in catering your fiesta de amor. You can contact us for catering menus and room rental prices.
