By Megan Burke Follow me on Google+

Craving cuisine with a little south of the border flare? If so, we’ve got just the place for you! Venture off-the-beaten-path, across the waterway over to the Carolina Forest neighborhood to enjoy the latest Grand Strand addition - Sol y Luna Latin Cantina.

As the name suggests, this popular new eatery offers a variety of Latin cuisine, ranging from traditional offerings to one-of-a-kind concoctions.Sol y Luna

Kick start your meal in classic style with a generous helping of homemade chips with either salsa, guacamole, or queso. For something different, sample the fresh ceviche, which varies daily depending on what the chef has up his (or her!) sleeve. Other tantalizing appe-teasers include the ‘mariscos al mojo’, a unique dish of clams, mussels, and chorizo cooked with garlic and cilantro in a white wine butter sauce, and ‘chicharrones’, Columbian fried pork belly.

For a lighter meal, opt for one of the refreshing salads or Mexican-inspired ‘bowls’. The shrimp avocado salad is a particular favorite, with local shrimp, fresh avocados, peppers, and onions all tossed in a citrus lime aioli over a bed of mixed greens.

Traditional Latin fare includes a variety of fajitas, tacos, and grilled skewers. Fajitas are served sizzling with onions, bell peppers, and tomatoes while the tacos and skewers are served with onions, rice, and beans.

For a hearty meal, peruse the entree section, which offers several signature items organized by protein: pork, chicken, beef, and seafood.

A few fan favorites include the ‘pollo en coco’, a Honduran dish comprised of slow roasted chicken, peppers, and onions in a house-made coconut sauce over white rice, and the ‘sol y puna paella’, a traditional Spanish dish with clams, mussels, calamari, shrimp, and chorizo sautéed over rice. Sol y Luna also features several hand-cut steak options with a unique Latin flair, like the mouthwatering Mexican style skirt steak.

Enlist a friend, or just save your appetite, to conquer the ‘carnivore’, a tasty Sol y Luna challenge. This substantial entree includes half a rotisserie chicken, a flank steak, carnitas, and chorizo with generous helpings of Spanish rice, beans, patacones, and yuca on the side. You can enjoy all of this for only $38 and guests who finish the whole helping solo will get a free t-shirt!

Sol y Luna also offers a generous happy hour every day from 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm. Happy hour is available in the bar area and offers several generous discounts on food and beverages. Notable deals include homemade chips and salsa for $3, empanadas for $5, fresh ceviche for $9, and a la carte tacos for $3. Happy hour hoppers can also indulge in $4 house wines, $3 well liquors, $4 draft beers, and discounted specialty cocktails. How’s that for a happy hour?

Sol y Luna offers both indoor and outdoor seating, ideal for al fresco dining when the weather is nice or indoor dining when you need a break from the Myrtle Beach heat.

Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, be sure to give this new Latin-inspired restaurant a try during your beach vacation! Call (843) 796-2275 for more information or reservations.
