Taste Test: Anejo

¡Hola amigos!

Let me take you on a flavor-packed journey to Anejo, a vibrant Mexican eatery nestled in the heart of Lawrenceville. As I stepped through the doors, I was greeted by a cozy rustic ambiance adorned with brick walls, checkered floors and mood lighting, setting the perfect stage for an unforgettable dining experience. And let me tell you, the pièce de résistance was the upper-level patio, offering breathtaking views of charming Downtown Lawrenceville.

Now, onto the main event—the food! Each dish at Anejo is a culinary masterpiece, showcasing the rich tapestry of Mexican flavors from every corner of the country. But first, let’s talk about the holy grail of Mexican appetizers— ‘Chips and Guacamole.’ The crisp, salty tortilla chips paired with the fresh, homemade guac were a match made in heaven, tantalizing my taste buds and leaving me craving more.

Of course, every Mexican feast is complete with a margarita in hand, and Anejo knows how to craft the perfect one. I opted for the ‘Spicy Mamacita,’ a fiery concoction of spicy tequila, cucumber-pineapple infusion, Cointreau and lime. And if margaritas aren’t your thing, fear not! Anejo offers an array of ‘Tequila Flights,’ allowing you to explore every flavor profile imaginable.

Now, onto the main event—the ‘Pollo Tacos.’ It was a tough decision with so many delicious options, but ultimately, the tacos stole the show. Served on black bean tortillas and topped with onions, cilantro and a zesty green chili sauce, each bite was a symphony of flavors that danced on my palate. Words can’t describe how delicious these were; even writing about it makes my mouth water!

In conclusion, Anejo is a true gem in the Lawrenceville dining scene, offering an authentic Mexican experience like no other. While my stomach may not have been big enough to try everything on the menu, one thing’s for sure—I’ll be back for more. Until next time, Anejo!
