El Monumento’s extensive daily menu includes a variety of quintessential Mexican Aperitivos, such as Queso Flameado, a blend of melted quesadilla and Oaxacan cheese, poblano peppers and caramelized onions. An assortment of traditional-style soups and salads round out the appetizer menu.
Las Signaturas dishes include crispy Pork Cheeks served with fried parsley and corn tortillas; Shrimp Relleno with roasted poblano, crimini mushrooms, garlic, spinach and jitomate sauce; and Pescado Veracruz, mesquite-grilled Texas gulf redfish served with garlic aioli. In addition to El Monumento’s staple dishes, many vegetarian and gluten-free options are also offered. And the Postre menu includes traditional house-made favorites like Tres Leches Strawberry Shortcake and Key Lime Pie.
El Monumento’s grounds and architecture draw from Mexican traditions, and showcase classic forms and materials, and plants of rural South Texas and Mexico. The majestic 7,700-square-foot restaurant is of modern design and includes four separate dining areas, an open kitchen, an interior courtyard, a terrace overlooking the Blue Hole lagoon, and a dining pavilion with glass walls that overlooks the courtyard.
