Las Cazuelitas is a restaurant located at 21 Crystal Lake Plaza in Crystal Lake, Illinois. The eatery opened in 2013 and is owned by Andres Moreno. Kitchen Manager Oscar tells us Las Cazuelitas features Nayarit style cuisine named after the state in Mexico from which the Moreno family hails. The recipes used to create the wonderful dishes produced in the kitchen are derived from secret family recipes. The attention to detail is striking. Every plate sent into the 156 seat dining room is double checked to assure the food is prepared and presented perfectly. Almost everything in the restaurant is genuine and made in-house to order. Some authentic ingredients are sourced in Mexico. The restaurant uses only the finest and freshest locally sourced produce, meat, and fish.A prime example of Nayarit style seafood is Pina Rellena De Mariscos. A pineapple stuffed with seafood: shrimp, oysters, scallops, clams and crab served with rice and potato salad. Another gem from the sea is the Huachinango Frito En Salsa Al Gusto. A fried whole red snapper with your choice of sauce and served with fries and rice. The dinner section of the menu features Enchiladas Suizas with four tortillas in a mild sauce stuffed with your choice of meat and topped with melted cheese and sour cream. Also the Taco Salad: a tortilla shell with beans, lettuce, sour cream, avocado, guacamole, and pico de gallo with your choice of meat. Other enticing options include chimichangas, chile rellenos, burritos, and tortas. Be sure to leave room for dessert like homemade Flan or the Platanos Fritos, which is fried bananas topped with sour cream and sugar.Las Cazuelitas is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
