Recently, we were invited to attend a food and tequila tasting at Añejo and we fell in love with the restaurant! Modern rustic decor, a huge patio and chandeliers a plenty! Añejo’s ambiance is right up our alley. Executive chef, Alberto Gutierrez cooks up some damn delicious Tex-Mex favorites.
On top of Añejo’s newly debuted menu, is their new feature: Taco Tuesday. Taco Tuesday at Añejo is like no other. Open fire grill and live music on the patio, the chef serves up some mean street tacos, 3 for $10 from open to close.
We tried all four street tacos that will be offered during Taco Tuesday:
- Beer-Battered Snapper: Cilantro, Cabbage, Avocado with Roasted Jalapeño Tartar Sauce
- Spicy Pork Carnitas: Avocado, Onions, Cilantro with Roasted Tomatillo Salsa
- Jalapeño Pork Sausage: Queso Chihuahua, Peppers, Onions, Guacamole with Salsa Verde
- Tacos Al Carbon (Beef): Beef or chicken fajita, Guacamole, Refried Beans with Cheddar Cheese
Our favorites were: Tacos Al Carbon with Beef (so tender) and Jalapeno Pork Sauage.
Añejo also offers daily happy hour from 3 – 7 PM with food and drink specials.
Our favorite part of the night was the tequila tasting! Quick facts: Tequila can only be produced in the town of Tequila, Mexico and tequila is derived from the agave plant!
Alejandro, Añejo’s tequila sommelier, walked us through four tastings of Tequila from blanco (aged the least) to extra Añejo (aged longer), and completely diminished my tequila hatred developed during that one horror graduation night of downing countless shots of Patron…
If you have any questions regarding the drinks at Añejo, look for this guy… Alejandro!
