Taqueria Canonita Restaurant Review

: Overlooking the Grand Canal and its gondoliers, this cheerful eatery features colorful artifacts, a friendly 16-seat bar displaying decorative liqueur bottles, and a bustling open kitchen. We like the ceviche trio --- ahi with cantaloupe and chipotle vinaigrette, veracruzano with capers and cherry peppers, and shrimp and crab with sangrita. The creative duck relleno presents an Anaheim chile stuffed with orange duck confit and topped with a red chili manchamantel sauce. Tacos and burritos are served with cilantro rice and clay pot black beans. The Santa Rosa barbacoa de puerco --- marinated pork roasted in a banana leaf and served with rice, beans and a chipotle barbecue sauce --- is a winner, as is the lobster-goat cheese tamale. Save room for the peach marmalade empanada with pepita brittle ice cream and ponche syrup.
