My friend is renting out Bacanora for his wife's 50th BDay party. I finally get to try it this Saturday night!
Which location? I have been to a few. Just went to one in Avondale that was one of the prettiest restaurants I have been in.

Dilla Libre has the best quesadillas ever. Don't give a hoot if it's Mexican, New Mexican, or whatever.

Love Cien Agaves for tacos and nachos and tequila. Love Fiesta Burrito, little local joint, for it's breakfast burrito. Best hangover food ever. Might have it tomorrow. :)

And I did, in fact, have that breakfast burrito this morning, lol.

So finally got to try Bacanora for the first time and was blown away! My friends set up a tasting menu for the party so I don't know how it relates to the normal menu.

First off the Halibut Ceviche was definitely the best ceviche that I have ever had. I would go back just for that dish.

Papas Sucia was amazing! Cast Iron potatoes with smoked birria. We were fighting over that one.

But the Hanger steak was my favorite. Amazing beef flavor!!!

SO much food that we brought a bunch home!

Course #4: Hanger Steak and Roasted Chicken platter for our table of 4

I’m glad that you enjoyed it! It is nearly impossible to get a reservation there

Actually a couple showed up at the door and were super disappointed when they saw the private party sign. I almost felt bad for them. Almost.

For the win and given it's pollo fundido, also for the weight

Haven't had theirs, but there are some good ones out there and it's great (at staking weight)

You just like the way she opens wide and attacks the burrito…




That place is less than a mile from me - will have to go
