Happy 4th of July, everyone! Where are you celebrating? How much do you love La Cava del Tequila? I know I do, as do all of my friends. Hence why a few of us stopped by recently for a few drinks and, of course, Queso con Jalapeno! It’s so good there! Just enough heat, and it really hits the snacking spot.

It’s been a while since Matt and I visited La Cantina de San Angel, so we decided to visit again so he could try some of the tacos. I’d had the Tacos de Carne ($11.99) in the past, and they were incredibly salty. Since we were walking a lap at Epcot, Matt decided that he would give them a try. The tacos consist of smoked beef brisket served on fresh, handmade corn tortillas with pico de gallo. They are served with a wedge of lime and are accompanied by corn tortilla chips.
With family in town visiting, we had to make an obligatory trip to Epcot (as if we needed a reason to go there!). After a trip on El Rio del Tiempo, err, Gran Fiesta Tour in Mexico, I wanted to swing by La Cava del Tequila. It’s been a while since I was there, and since it had opened shortly before our voyage, it was still a bit quiet and we were able to grab a table.
First things first, we needed some drinks! I opted for the Blood Orange Margarita, which is a mix of El Mayor premium silver Tequila, orange liqueur, sweet-tart mix of blood orange juice and hibiscus syrup, topped with wild berry foam served on the rocks. The balance of this margarita had a perfect blend of sweet and sour flavors, and the wild berry foam was an interesting addition that grabbed attention.

I had been wanting to try out Lime Fresh for a while, and I stopped in to the one located at Phillips Crossing off Sand Lake Road for lunch when I had an opportunity. Being no stranger to queso around these parts, I decided I should give theirs a try. I also opted to add ground beef to it. Since I was flying solo on this lunch, it’s all I ordered since I knew it would be more than enough.
They gave me a number to place on my table, and I took a seat. In a few minutes, I was brought the queso and a basket of tortilla chips. I liked the style of the chips. They were a white corn variety that had some heft to them. They would have stood up against some thick guacamole.
