Last week, the Baton Rouge Elite Squad met for its first
Elite Event at Caliente Mexican Craving. It was without a doubt, a Fiesta
Fantastica. They served up traditional favorites and new takes on the
classics – Yelpers were exclaiming aye
The staff at Caliente treated us like royalty, and served us
bottomless top shelf margaritas and sangria. We all gathered on the patio to
and shared a sampling of many of the awesome menu items Caliente offers like
Ceviche, Mexican Egg Rolls, Crawfish Bread, Black Bean Soup, Mini Chimichangas,
Chicken Quesadillas, Street Tacos, Kabobs and Chocoflan. The Street Tacos
caught everyone’s attention, especially Joel M, who wrote that he “LOVED,
LOVED, LOVED the,” and is planning to
“hit this place again just for these.” Perhaps the most unique part of
the menu was the Chocoflan. It is flan on top of a brownie! They took two of
the best desserts and covered them in a caramel sauce.
Of course, this event fantastica
could never have happened without the generosity and dedication from Caliente
Mexican Craving. Thanks, Jessica, for hosting us, and Cristina for all of your
hard work and planning to make our party so successful and fun! I also owe thanks
to all of the Elites who came out, especially those dedicated Yelpers who drove
all the way from New Orleans to celebrate our first Elite Event in Baton Rouge.
Don’t just take my word for it that we had a great time, you can read what
Yelpers from NOLA and Baton Rouge had to say about the evening here.
