In New Mexico we do not have a shortage of Mexican restaurants especially here in Las Cruces. There is one place in particular that my husband and I love to go to that’s not your typical New Mexico Mexican Restaurant, Habanero’s Fresh Mex located in Las Cruces. It’s fresh Mex restaurant meaning there is no lard or MSG in their food.
Chef Felix prides himself on the freshness of his food and unique Baja style. He used to live in San Diego where he worked at El Torito. Many of Chef Felix’s menu options are very popular in Southern California, Baja Fish Tacos, Mahi-Mahi Tacos and his mesquite salsa.
I have tried lots of things on his menu but still always go back to my favorite thing which is the Baja fish tacos. Being away from Southern California I have missed my fish tacos but I am happy to have them back again. My husband always gets the mahi-mahi tacos, which he really enjoys. Chef Felix chips are fresh and not greasy his salsa has a mesquite flavor to it, they are so ADDICTIVE. The welcome soup is amazing and has the taste of home.
Every time we go to Habanero’s it’s a great experience, we love coming here and hope you do to. If you haven’t made it over to see Chef Felix pay him a visit and tell him Paige sent you.
Enjoy your food!
