Although National Tequila Day is July 24th, Barbakoa is starting the fiesta early and hosting a Four-Course Paired Tequila Dinner. This delicious prix fixe meal will be centered around the spirit of Mexico, featuring dishes such as Marucha Sin Hueso, a flat iron steak grilled to perfection served with a Peruvian potato cake and spicy chimichurri sauce. The dish, along with each other course, is matched with a custom crafted Tequila-based beverage. In this case Tequila con Agua de Jamaica, a next level edition of the classic Mexican refreshment with Patron Anejo, sweet Jamaica hibiscus tea, and a sweet tajín rim.
