If you're living la vida loca these days, whipping up something delicioso in the kitchen may be the last thing on your to-do list. Instead of resorting to your usual mediocre take-out spots, indulge in fare that will make you say ¡arriba! and not ¡ay dios mio! every time you take a bite: Mexican cuisine.

Choose from the following options:
- $18 for Brunch for 2 on Saturday or Sunday ($40 value)
- $15 for $30 worth of food for dinner Tuesday-Sunday
You’ll find yourself saying, “Yo quiero Real Tenochtitlan” daily after having a taste of this tasty cuisine. If you're popping in for brunch, get the libations flowing early with your choice of mimosas, or Bloody Marys for you and a guest. If you need more of a wake-up call, opt for coffee instead. Indulge in Mexican specialties to get your day started off to a delicious start with dishes like chilaquiles or huevos rancheros. Classic breakfast plates are given a Mex twist; enjoy eggs benedict slathered in a chipotle hollandaise sauce. Dinner diners can sip on lively house margaritas ($7.50) or a glass of Chilean merlot ($7.50) from their fully stocked cantina before you let the feasting begin. First, nosh on fresh guacamole made tableside ($9) or delight in a warm Sopa Azteca ($7). Rated as having “Chicago’s Best Mole,” it would be a shame to pass on one of Real Tenochtitlan’s six mole sauces, including one made with 28 ingredients (chicken, duck or fish served with homemade tortillas and rice, $18). Other specialties include the carne asada made with ribeye steak ($22) and grilled shrimp presented in a creamy chile chipotle and garlic sauce ($18). What’s dinner without dessert? Coconut pie with strawberry sauce ($7.50) or a traditional tres leches vanilla cake ($7.50) are perfect ways to round out a meal. Swoop up today’s deal to enjoy Mexican food that will taste like a fiesta in your mouth.
