First Look: Catrinas in Edwardsville

It was out with the arcade and in with asada when Catrinas opened on Thursday, Jan. 21 at 1027 Century Drive in Edwardsville. As The Scoop reported Monday, Jan. 26, Catrinas moved into the space formerly occupied by Unkle Munkey’s Coin Club after it closed doors in November 2015.

Co-owners Megan and Ana Becerril serve up Mexican-inspired fare that aims to go beyond the Tex-Mex chimichanga. Eight starters range from octopus salad with avocado toast to taquitos to corn and bean salsa and chips. The taco selection eschews ground beef or shredded chicken with offerings like a chicharrón and a pulled pork version with habanero onion slaw. Hungrier diners can choose from nearly a dozen platters featuring chicken, pork, beef and fish, as well as a vegetarian option.

Margaritas made with house-squeezed juice feature Tres Agaves tequila with additional flavors like strawberry-habanero available on Margarita Mondays. Catrinas is open Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Here’s what to expect when you step inside Edwardsville’s newest eatery:

The Scoop: Catrinas opens in Edwardsville

Uncle Munkey’s Coin Club is out, and Catrinas is in at 1027 Century Drive in Edwardsville. Co-owners Megan and Ana Becerril both worked at Uncle Munkey’s owner Ryan O’Day other restaurant, Wang Gang, and decided to open their own place when Uncle Munkey’s shuttered in early November after a sale of the bar and arcade fell through. Wang Gang expanded into Unkle Munkey’s dining area, adding more seating, and Catrinas opened in the remaining space Thursday, Jan. 21.

“My husband’s side of the family is from Mexico,” Megan Becerril said. “We want to serve the food you’d find if you walked into a kitchen in rural Mexico.”

To that end, do not expect to see chimichangas, refried beans or seasoned ground beef on the menu. Catrinas offers a variety of tacos like carne asada and al pastor cooked to order on house-made tortillas. Also on the menu is a Bistecitos Criollos – a thick cut, 8-ounce steak topped with bell pepper sauce, tomatoes and a sunny side-up egg served with either mashed potatoes or Mexican rice.

The drink menu will feature beer, wine and margaritas made with Tres Agaves tequila and fresh juice, which diners can enjoy in the 70-seat dining room or in the 30-seat bar area. Plans are in the works for a patio as well. Catrinas is open for lunch and dinner service.
