Tortilla Republic, Laguna Beach

Situated only a few streets away from Laguna’s Main Beach, Tortilla Republic renders modern Mexican cuisine. This location recently opened the past October and has already dazzled guests with its excellent customer service. Bold flavors and a sophisticated Latin décor create a romantic atmosphere.

Inside this venue each fixture and furniture piece is custom-made from the motherland of Mexico, and an enchanting bare-branched tree lies perched as the centerpiece of the extensive bar. Dark cherry wood and caramel-colored tones kindle a warm ambiance. Tortilla Republic also bears an al fresco patio ideal for a relaxed evening.

Dinner includes delectable fare like the customer favorite appetizer Salsa Trio, a trifecta of salsa de mesa, salsa de tomatillo freca, and salsa de papaya habanero. Tortilla Republic proudly uses 100% Agave Tequilas in their margaritas. Sip on the Tropic Sunset Margarita, concocted with pineapple, strawberry, passion fruit, and fresh agave lime sweet. For the main event, we recommend the tantalizing Short Rib “Chile Verde.” This plate includes prime all natural short rib, spicy roasted tomatillo and jalapeño chile verde sauce, and jalapeño roasted garlic potato purée.

For brunch, satiate your morning hunger with the Torta de Huevo. This specialty features two fried eggs, applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, arugula, chipotle aioli, a brioche bun, and cheddar breakfast potatoes.

Whether you visit for Taco Tuesday, served all day long, or a choice meal on the weekend, this chic restaurant promises groups a delicious and memorable time. If you love an ocean view with innovative Mexican fare and a trendy sphere, Tortilla Republic may just become your new Laguna Beach favorite!
