Featuring Mexican and Central and South American cuisine, La Parilla opened here in 1999; a second location operates in Olathe, Kan. A gas grill, flat top and al pastor grill turn out traditional tacos, quesadillas, enchiladas and much more, amid bright colors and mosaic, as well as Latin American décor and framed photographs. This is a great place to try yuca frita appetizers, or quinoa and sweet corn fritters. Or savor La Parilla’s signature protein-based and vegetarian rice bowls, accompanied by rice, black beans, chimichurri, lettuce, and tomatillo salsa. For ‘lighter’ fare, order a meal-sized Brazilian Steak Salad or several other salad options. Express lunch meals are a steal, at less than $8, including rice and beans. Sure you can enjoy a margarita on the patio. For a non-alcoholic taste of Latin America, try some horchata, or Coco Rico (coconut soda) too.
