If you’ve recently taken to riding a bull to work, clicking away on castanets every other available moment or drawing squiggly moustaches on anything that has a face; including Timothy your cat and on posters of politicians, it may be a sign that you are yearning for Spain. Get a taste of Spain, without jet-setting to the other side of the globe, with today’s Groupon; pay R180 for a three-course Spanish meal for two at Canto Latino, valued at R360.
Located in Rivonia, Canto Latino is a little piece of Spain that snuck its way into Johannesburg and established itself as a top purveyor of Spanish cuisine. With over 35-years in the foreign hospitality industry, the restaurant has a pedigree in authentic Mediterranean food that few, if any other, can match. Latin flair has weaved itself into every aspect of the restaurant, from the décor down to every dish on the menu, and a meal or drink at Canto Latino is an experience like no other.
Like the blind-mice, the little pigs and Goldilocks’ bears the best things always come in threes, and today’s Groupon goes to show that it doesn’t only happen in fairy-tales. In true Latino fashion your meal will begin with a Tapas starter, comprising titbits of the best that is on offer. Of course, no meal claiming to be Spanish could pull it off without a hearty seafood paella, spiced to perfection and cooked to melt-in-your mouth delectability. Crème brulee’s great, if you’re cooking for the in-laws on Sunday afternoon, take things up a notch with Canto Latino’s Crème catalan, the Spanish variety of the traditional favourite.
Like watching an epic movie, racing go-karts or playing walkie-talkie with tin cans and string, some things were just designed to be done with a partner that’s why today’s Groupon is for two people so that you don’t have to experience the wonder that is Canto Latino alone.
Latin fact: During the rainy season in Spain, all the locals don glittery flip-flops which sparkle under the raindrops. Contrary to popular belief, they are not worn merely for amusement but rather as safe-havens for tiny fairies that are trapped in falling raindrops.
