At M Cantina in Dearborn, Executive Chef and Master Mixologist Junior Merino brings gourmet Mexican street food to the table in timeless style, with a flair for the dramatic.


Tapas are a traditional menu item in Latin and Spanish cuisines. They consist of ‘small bites,’ usually served in several courses. Tapas are perfect for large groups, where everybody can share a little bit of everything. Alternatively, they’re great for just taking it easy with a friend and letting the plates keep coming. M Cantina has a wide variety of tapas, including fajitas and fried plantains. Chef Merino isn’t just a genius behind the grill, though. He is a certified Master Mixologist and has the repertoire to back it up, including his creation “El Angel,” the official cocktail of Mexico.
