El Azteca Modern Tequila Lounge is the latest addition to Yaletown dining and has the air of a tequila lounge with a solid Mexican menu.
We started with this fantastic zucchini soup (who knew zucchini could carry that much zest). and chased spoonfuls of delish’ with Ceviche de Hongos ($11.5)– mushroom marinated in cilantro vinaigrette.
I am a huge fan of the guac’, so add a little bit of fried pork bits and what do you get? Guacamole Mamuca ($10). Serious chunky yum. From there we moved through snapper, pulled pork, and Pollo en Mole tacos.
And not to be forgotten – as one would expect from a Mexican-inspired restaurant, El Azteca has a great tequila list. And there are tequila flights for $15.
A bit of modern yet authentic Mexican concoctions. Si! Thumbs up.
