La Cocina Mexican Grill & Bar
La Cocina Mexican Grill and Bar serves up a Latin inspired menu with a coastal twist, featuring specialty dishes prepared from scratch using the freshest ingredients available.
Locally-caught seafood, grass-fed beef, and produce sourced from local farmers make up the lighter, fresher flavor that’s not your typical Mexican cuisine. Also new to the concept, sharable plates so friends and families can try a lot more of the menu while dining at La Cocina. The Latin inspired menu beautifully complements the upscale casual décor.
Highlights from the menu include a Fresh Tamale Entree made in house fresh every day, tacos 8 ways, and a fresh fish entree featuring a rotating catch to provide guests with the freshest seafood available. La Cocina sources directly from Greg Abrams Seafood in Panama City, and fresh catches are delivered within twenty-four hours of them pulling it off the boat.
Blistered Shishito Peppers, traditional Latin American peppers known as a Patron Peppers or "Gambling Peppers" are fast becoming a novelty at La Cocina. One in every ten peppers will be hot while most of them are mild. The kitchen crew cooks them on high heat with oil and salt and serves them with a sweet guajilla-honey glaze.
La Cocina's crowd favorites include enchiladas, burritos, fajitas and quesadillas…and of course chips and salsa, guac and queso. The bar at La Cocina offers some of the best drinks along Scenic 30A, like house-made mojitos, sangrias, and a selection of fresh squeezed lime margaritas. Creative cocktails include the Mango Margarita - Habanero infused tequila served with a tajin rim for a twist on the ordinary.
