Cha Cha's Latin Kitchen Restaurant Review

: Cha Cha's Latin Kitchen enlivens the restaurant and bar scene in Downtown Brea with a concept that transcends what is expected at typical Mexican venues. The minimalist modern décor surprises with its low-key banquettes, giant picture windows, exhibition kitchen and golden mood lighting. Start with a handcrafted cocktail like traditional sangría, mojito or signature Cha Cha Margarita, which contains fresh ruby red grapefruit juice and elderflower liqueur, as well as 100-percent blue agave tequila. The unusually crisp chips set the proper mood, either when enjoyed with the kicked-up salsa or augmented with the made-to-order guacamole. For appetizers, try the thick "papas fritas" fries or the rich wood-fired queso fundido. Freshly made organic tortillas highlight seven types of “street food”-style tacos. As for mains, the roasted Jidori chicken with Yucatan spices is a standout, as are the enchiladas and the slow-braised carnitas. Looking for a late-night spot in Brea? After 10 p.m., Cha Cha’s serves items from its reasonably priced happy hour menu and transforms into a hip spot to drink, eat and party into the wee hours. Cha Cha's also features all-you-can-drink mimosas as part of a special brunch menu on Sundays. There's a sister location in Irvine: 13126 Jamboree Rd., 714-408-7819.
