There is a miracle of life which occurs in the turquoise blue waters that surround a tropical paradise. For there is a migration of the giant sea turtles to the white sandy beaches that surround southern Mexico. Where these gentle giants come from, no one really knows. But they come by the thousands every year to the same beach which began their lives. They lay their eggs, and, after their long journey and this exhausting process, crawl slowly back into the sea.
The natives to these beaches celebrate the event with a fiesta. They prepare wonderful food in abundance and create an atmosphere of revelry and uninhibited fun.
The name, Tortuga Coastal Mexican Cantina, is derived from this simple, noble creature whose life creates so much happiness. The wonderful and unique dishes on the menu capture the essence of the same tropical flavors. Yet the real inspiration comes from people who need very little in the way of an excuse to celebrate life.
Tortuga Mexican Kitchen is a multiple unit restaurant company. They operate Mexican casual dining restaurants in Houston and Galveston, Texas.
