About Benzina Cantina

Say arriba to tacos and tequila at Benzina Cantina on High Street in Preston. This fun and funky 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 esquites – grilled corn kernels served with queso fresco, fresh lemon, chipotle, mayonnaise, coriander and tajin chilli. Sip on a watermelon margarita, before wrapping your hands around a papas con chorizo taco with locally made Spanish chorizo, pan fried with potatoes, onions and queso de Oaxaca, served on an open tortilla with green tomatillo salsa and coriander. Finish sweetly with churros and warm chocolate dipping sauce.
