Cinco de Mayo falls on a Friday this year, and that makes it the perfect time to get out and enjoy fabulous food, great atmosphere, lively music, and a few adult beverages.  Paradiso 37 is spicing things up with some fabulous menu items just in time for Cinco de Mayo 2017.  Here is our review of some of the items sampled during Media Preview Night at Paradiso 37.

Upon entering Paradiso 37, I was directed to a table overlooking the water.  Although it was quite warm with the open-air table seating, the sun was setting and the air cooled down after that.

The Sampling Menu for the event promised to have some great food and beverage options.

Live entertainment was offered on the outdoor patio.  While it was warm outside, the patio is a great spot for an evening of dancing and beverages.

The evening started with a beverage choice of a glass of wine, a 29 Degree Draft Beer, or a Sangria Margarita.  The 29 Degree Draft Beer is perfect for folks who enjoy a nice cold beer.  The Sangria Margarita was the most popular beverage of choice, and with good reason!  This visually appealing beverage is made with Red Sangria and Red Wine, Paradiso 37 Premium Tequila, Brandy, Triple Sec, Pomegranate, Fresh Lime Juice, Cranberry Juice and Guava Juice.  The Sangria Margarita Cocktail is sure to be a big seller during Cinco de Mayo this weekend!

Chef Mo is very knowledgable about the foods he plans and prepares for the Paradiso 37 Disney Springs menu.  He did a fantastic job with the food choices for the Cinco de Mayo Media Preview Night.

The food samplings started with House-made Guacamole, which was fresh and delicious, Salsa, and Tortilla Chips. The Shrimp Ceviche, one of my personal favorite samplings, offered a nice kick of spicy flavor and paired beautifully with the gluten-free Tortilla Chips. Paradiso 37 Nachos were what you would expect from loaded nachos with cheese sauce, chili con carne, lettuce, tomato and jalapenos.  Chicken and Cheese Quesadillas were warm with melted cheese and a great flavor.  I highly recommend the Fire-Roasted South American Crazy Corn.  This delectable meal addition is a corn-on-the-cob and melted cheese combination that is simply spectacular.  The meal portion ended with Baja Fish Tacos topped with an amazing Cilantro-Lime Crema…or so I thought!

Chef Mo surprised us by sending out three new menu items.  The slow-roasted BBQ Pork Ribs were tender and flavorful.  They were paired with Apple Jicama Cabbage Coleslaw and Wasabi Fries. If you have never tried Wasabi Fries, and you enjoy your food with a bit of a kick like I do, then these are for you.  This particular dish will be featured this year, by Chef Mo and his team, at Epcot for the annual Party For The Senses Event during the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival.   When I think of Cinco de Mayo the word ‘jalapeno’ definitely comes to mind.  Paradiso 37 is featuring a Jalapeno Guacamole Pico de Gallo Burger served on a white and black Sesame Seed Brioche Bun and paired with Truffle Fries.  The Argentinian Skirt Steak with Caramelized Onions,Chimichurri and fries, while not the favorite of the three, was loaded with flavor.

The all-new Mojito Cart features fresh ingredients to create a Mojito for you right at your table.  Fresh Mint is one of the key ingredients in a Mojito and this adult beverage did not disappoint on flavor.

As if the food and beverages were not enough, we were now moving on to desserts!  There were Churros with Chocolate and Caramel Dipping Sauces, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Tres Leche, and the gluten-free Flourless Chocolate Stack.  All the choices were excellent with the Tres Leche being my personal favorite due to its combination of strawberry and coconut.

Lauren, of Rockaway PR Events, is awesome and did a fabulous job of pulling us all together for this fabulous Pre-Cinco de Mayo Event.  Felix, Sales and Marketing Manager for Boulevard Restaurants, was friendly, easy to speak with, and was also very knowledgable of the Paradiso 37 Menu.

Overall, I highly recommend a visit to Paradiso 37 during Cinco de Mayo weekend.  Paradiso 37 Disney Springs is certainly spicing things up for Cinco de Mayo 2017.  According to Chef Mo, the party will be going on all weekend. Even if you are pressed for time, you must stop in for a Sangria Margarita, some House-made Guacamole with Tortilla Chips, and Fire-Roasted South American Crazy Corn.    Your taste buds will thank you!
