The GOODS from La Mezcaleria
Vancouver, BC | Vancouver’s most authentic Mexican restaurant, La Mezcaleria, is cooking up special celebratory plates for New Year’s Eve. Only available at the Gastown location, dishes can be ordered as the full four-course set menu for $65, or guests can choose plates a la carte. In addition to the New Year’s dishes, the everyday menu will continue to be served.
Using bright and complex flavours from her home country of Mexico, Chef Mariana Gabilondo is preparing four courses, including a refreshing salad, seafood and meat mains, and dessert. Wake up your taste buds with Arugula, Mint and Basil Salad with Pineapple and Mango Crisps with Tamarind Dressing, then dive into Pink Swimming Scallops steamed in Blackened Chili Lime Broth. The meat course is a rich Sour Orange Roasted Duck stuffed with Pork Belly, best followed
by a refreshing dessert of Crème Brulée Ice Cream with Roasted Pumpkin Seed Wafers. Choose one or two dishes, or embrace the evening’s celebratory spirit by ordering the full menu.
New Year’s Eve wouldn’t be complete without something to sip, and La Mezcaleria’s bar team will be on hand to recommend high-end tequilas and mezcals, or to mix the perfect cocktail so you and your table can raise a toast at midnight.
Don’t forget to bring your friends! From 11pm onward, join La Mezcaleria as it amps things up with live music by DJ H.O.T., a project by Mexican musician El Garzita, with a one-of-a-kind sound inspired by modern and retro dance music.
