Roasted Corn Salad: Think salad is boring? You may want to change your tune after you try our fresh, bountiful Roasted Corn Salad at Borracha! This salad features a variety of flavors, textures, and ingredients that make it a beauty to behold and a true pleasure to eat. 

What will you find in this salad? So much good stuff. It’s got naturally sweet grilled corn, soft and rich cotija cheese, cherry tomatoes, panela cheese, black beans, pickled red onion, red bell pepper, jicama, and cotija cheese vinaigrette. 

It’s a hearty salad that can be paired with another app or side dish to make a light meal, or perfect to share as a healthy start to your dinner. 

Brown Rice Bowls: For those who prefer to avoid gluten, are currently avoiding flour tortillas, or just want to focus on a high protein, nutrient-dense eating plan, Borracha’s got just the thing. Our Brown Rice Bowls make eating healthy a pleasure. 

First, pick your choice of protein: we have chicken, mahi mahi, or carne asada. We’ll prepare the bowl with a brown rice base augmented with grilled corn, black beans, guacamole, cherry tomato pico, gochujang sauce, bean sprouts, and a delicious coleslaw dressing.

If you want to keep it veg, we’ve got you covered, too. We have a Veggie Rice Bowl featuring grilled corn, black beans, guacamole, cherry tomato pico, gochujang sauce, bean sprouts, and coleslaw dressing. 

Note: What is gochujang sauce? It’s an Asian condiment that really packs some sweet heat. It’s a fermented chili powder that is made with starchy glutinous rice that gives it a unique sweet-yet-spicy finished flavor. It is traditionally made in an earthenware cooking vessel called a jangdok, which is where the sauce gets the latter part of its name. Gochu means chili pepper. 

Veggie Fajitas: This is a vegan delight, but even meat eaters who are taking a break from animal protein will love going green for this menu item, which is chock full of delicious and flavorful veggies. 

This sizzling sensation comes with peppers, onions, vegan cheese, and vegan sour cream. Instead of the traditional tortillas, it comes with lettuce cups. So it’s a great way to avoid extra carbs and keep things healthy!

Grilled Veggie Tacos: Tacos are delicious. That’s a simple fact. But did you know they can be healthy, too? 

The freedom to fill tacos with any type of filling means that it’s easy to tailor tacos to your current dietary preferences. That includes adhering to a vegan or vegetarian diet, or avoiding animal protein to lighten up your meal! 

If you want to go veggie or keep things healthy and still have some tasty tacos, go for our grilled veggie tacos. Filled with a flavorful mixture of grilled zucchini, creamy avocado, black beans, and brown rice, they’ll fill you up, but can help you stick to a healthy eating lifestyle. 

Veggie Quesadilla: Quesadillas are undoubtedly tasty. But with the traditional copious amounts of melty cheese, they’re not always the most health-conscious choice. This veggie quesadilla lets you have your quesadilla and stay healthy too! 

It’s made with grilled corn, vegan monterey jack cheese, and pico de gallo. You’ll never miss the “real” cheese as you feast on this flavorful menu item from our vegan menu, which has the texture and flavors you’re craving but lacks the dairy and meat. 

Maintaining a healthy diet is easy at Borracha Mexican Cantina. We like to give our customers options, so we have plenty of health-conscious dishes on our regular menu, plus a robust vegan menu of plant-based options that are perfect for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. So whether you’re going for one of our tasty Brown Rice Bowls or just a lightened up vegan version of the classic quesadilla, you’re bound to be pleased by our healthy menu offerings. Make a reservation to visit today!
