Price Range: Mid $10s - $20+
Since the serving sizes weren’t overly large we were still able to enjoy a bit of dessert and decided on the Mexican Chocolate Ice Cream. Dark and luscious, creamy and chocolately without being bitter. The best part was the lingering spiciness after each bite. It was definitely a good way to end the meal…but only along side some great tequila.
The night would not be complete if you go to Anejo and did not try one of their tequila flights, which is what I think truly sets them apart from other restaurants and bars in Calgary. Our server suggested we try the Avion Tequila Flight, so tried we did, each getting a flight consisting of the Blanco, Reposado, and Anejo. It was amazing contrasting the three, sipping each and going back and forth.
The manager that evening was also very generous and brought us a sample of the Patron XO Café, which was served chilled in a very neat looking tumbler. This was significantly different from the other tequilas we sampled earlier since its closer to flavoured vodka, it was both creamy and full of nutty coffee flavour, definitely meant to be sipped and savoured. I found that the colder the liquor got the more it tasted like having an iced Vietnamese coffee. I can definitely use some of that in my morning coffee, wouldn’t that kick start the day!
My Picks: Guacamole, Molcajete
