Latin Street the hot new eatery in Wiesbaden

Good Latin food seems like the only thing that you just can’t find here in Germany.
But the struggle is now over!
Lucius D. Clay Kaserne in Wiesbaden has finally cracked the code with Latin Street.
Latin Street is the hottest and newest restaurant to hit the Wiesbaden garrison with their authentic Latin food, just having their grand opening on April 8.
They offer quick eats like tacos, burritos and enchiladas, as well as small eats like plantains, queso and salsa, empanadas and even some tasty margaritas.
Their homemade salsa is fantastic, flavorful and fresh but not too spicy.
The empanadas are crispy on the outside, and soft and flavorful on the inside and are even better dipped in the homemade salsa.
The Tacos Carmitas plate was great also. Big portions, lots of beans, and the rice was seasoned and tasty, but everything was clicked up a few notches with that amazing homemade salsa.
Noticing a trend? Get the salsa.
Pair the huge outside seating area with a refreshing $5.50 margarita, and summer cannot get here fast enough.
The only negatives about a current Latin Street experience are that seating is limited to tables with 3-5 seats. Eating alone can be a little uncomfortable, but even more so when your only choice is a table that could fit King Arthur and his knights.
Also, a basket of silverware sitting in the middle of the table only brings lots of strange hands to the imagination. Who knows how long it’s been there?
Overall, the Latin Street experience was great. With everything on the menu sitting at $3-10, you won’t break the bank, and $5.50 margaritas is always a plus. Just be sure to drink responsibly.
