Thanks to the folks at Popcorn, we were offered the opportunity to try La Mezcaleria, a Mexican restaurant brought to you by the brains behind La Taqueria. It is supposed to be the first Mexican restaurant that offers Mezcal, tequila and cocktails from different regions of Mexico.

With our menu tasting, we sampled a ceviche, two entrees, and a dessert. Of the ceviche options, we chose Aguachile (literally means “chili water”). Ceviche is usually quite acidic due to the use of fresh lime juice, so one might think green apple would just make this over the top sour. Surprisingly the hint of sweetness in green apple, along with the high water content in cucumber made this ceviche more refreshing. And the use of chili added some heat to the dish, which gave this an extra layer of flavours. I liked the combination of scallop and tuna in this dish but found them a bit fishy. The highlight for me was probably the house-made tortilla chips. They were fresh, crunchy, and had the right thickness so they wouldn’t break on you. I could just eat them alone, a lot of them. Great for snacking – they would go so well with the guacamole too.
