First Look: Catrinas in Edwardsville
It was out with the arcade and in with asada when Catrinas opened on Thursday, Jan. 21 at 1027 Century Drive in Edwardsville. As Sauce reported Monday, Jan. 26, Catrinas moved into the space formerly occupied by Unkle Munkey’s Coin Club after it closed doors in November 2015.
Co-owners Megan and Ana Becerril serve up Mexican-inspired fare that aims to go beyond the Tex-Mex chimichanga. Eight starters range from octopus salad with avocado toast to taquitos to corn and bean salsa and chips. The taco selection eschews ground beef or shredded chicken with offerings like a chicharrón and a pulled pork version with habanero onion slaw. Hungrier diners can choose from nearly a dozen platters featuring chicken, pork, beef and fish, as well as a vegetarian option.
Margaritas made with house-squeezed juice feature Tres Agaves tequila with additional flavors like strawberry-habanero available on Margarita Mondays. Catrinas is open Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
