Healthy Menu Options At Borracha

Are you trying to eat healthier in the new year? If so, you’re not alone: this is one of the most common New Year’s Resolutions out there! At Borracha Mexican Cantina, we want to help you stick to your healthy eating goals, and have plenty of delicious healthier menu options to make it easy to stay on track.

We firmly believe that healthy doesn’t have to mean boring. That’s why we offer plenty of light yet creatively prepared and crave-worthy options on our menu. From tempting salads to hearty yet healthy brown rice bowls, we want to help make healthy eating fun. Here are just some of the ways you can stick to your New Year’s resolutions at Borracha aka your favorite Mexican restaurant in Henderson, Nevada.

Check out our soups and salads

Soups and salads have long been the menu territory of those who are trying to eat healthier. At Borracha, we prove that lighter bites do not have to leave you feeling hungry and unsatisfied.

Our Smoked Tomato & Tortilla Soup, for instance, combines smoked tomato, panela cheese, and pulled chicken for a hearty and comforting eating experience.

In terms of salads, options like our Roasted Corn Salad–made with grilled corn, cotija cheese, cherry tomatoes, panela cheese, black beans, pickled red onion, red bell pepper, jicama and cotija cheese vinaigrette–make it easy to get your daily dose of veggies in the most delicious way.

Ceviche FTW

Our Shrimp Ceviche is a light appetizer that packs a powerful protein punch. Made with shrimp, avocado, pickled red onions, and cilantro vinaigrette, it’s low in calories but high in flavor. Going vegan in the new year? No worries: we also have a Coconut Ceviche, made with coconut serrano dressing and served with crispy plantains.

Two words: fish tacos

 Yup: you can eat healthy and still have tacos. Our Grilled Mahi Mahi Tacos are on the lighter side, featuring fish that is grilled versus fried. Served with pico de gallo, shredded cabbage, cilantro, and sliced avocados, they have the perfect combination of satiating “good” fat from the avocado, protein from the fish, and plenty of veggie goodness.

Choose from flour or corn tortillas!

Brown rice bowl, anyone?

Our Brown Rice Bowls have become a favorite on our menu owing to their high level of tastiness, but we’ve got a secret: they’re healthy, too.

Our Bowls are composed of brown rice, grilled corn, black beans, guacamole, cherry tomato pico, Gochujang sauce, bean sprouts, and coleslaw dressing. You can add your choice of protein to design your ideal meal: chicken, mahi mahi, or carne asada. You can also order it veggie!

Peruse our vegan menu

Going vegan in the new year? Happily, our menu has you covered. Borracha has an entire menu section devoted to vegan offerings, many of which are also gluten-free (or can be made gluten-free).

Among our tempting vegan offerings? Veggie Fajitas made with peppers, onions, vegan cheese, sour cream, and served with lettuce cups; or, maybe you’ll opt for a lighter version of what’s traditionally a cheesy classic with our Veggie Quesadilla, which is made with grilled corn, vegan monterey jack cheese, and pico de gallo.

Try our Grilled Salmon Plate

 Not all restaurant entrees have to be heavy. For example, our Grilled Salmon Plate is a delectable option that won’t weigh you down.

Grilled salmon is served with cilantro butter, peppers and onions, and burnt lime. The protein in the salmon is super satiating, so you’ll absolutely feel satisfied after this meal!

Sample our tequilas and mezcal!

Cutting down on carbs? Great news: hard alcohol is low carb. That means tequila or mezcal are in order!

For tequila fans, we have an incredible variety of different types available on our menu. Or, maybe you’ll try a tequila flight, where you’ll get 3 different tequilas to try. We have several different options on our menu that will tempt both tequila experts and newbies alike.

Conclusion: The new year offers a fresh start on health and fitness goals. However, your New Year’s resolution should never lead to suffering or deprivation!
