Benzina Cantina Overview

Say arriba to tacos and tequila at Benzina Cantina on High Street in Preston. This fun and funky new Mexican bar and restaurant built entirely from shipping containers, boasts great alfresco dining areas, as well as a rooftop hangout for after work cerveza with amigos. Chill out in rustic surrounds of polished timber and glowing pendent lights while sharing a starter like ensalada de nopales – cactus strips marinated in lime juice, fresh tomato, grilled onion, topped with feta and coriander. Sip on a Diablo cocktail with tequila, lime, ginger beer and chilli salt rim, before wrapping your hands around a lamb off the bone taco, slow cooked in beer on an open tortilla with lettuce, drunken red salsa, onion and coriander. Finish sweetly with churros and warm, dark chocolate dipping sauce.
