Dinner: Tina and I ate at Azul Tequila (4211 South Lamar Boulevard, Austin, TX‎ - (512) 416-9667‎) where we ordered more food than we could eat. We started with the Ceviche Costeño Precooked fish and shrimp marinated with lime juice, mixed with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, jalapenos, avocado, and spices.

It was a little too acidic for Tina, but exactly what I was looking for. I ate it on the provided saltines as well as tortilla chips (and preferred the tortilla chip).

We also shared the Pozole Mexiquense red hominy pork soup, served with lettuce, radish, onions, avocado, and oregano. I thought the spicy and rich pork soup was excellent. I'd recommend it without hesitation.

By this time we were pretty full, so we each had some of our entrees and packed them to take home. I had the Cabrito al Maguey South Central Mexican barbacoa, goat meat marinated in guajillo and spices, slow cooked on maguey (agave) leaves, salsa verde, Mexican rice and charro beans. The goat meat was well cooked and falling apart tender. I ate it on a tostada with fresh onions and cilantro.

Tina had the Pescado Vercruzano Sauteed fish filet topped with Vercruzana sauce served with avocado salad, white rice, and black beans.
