Last night we went out to eat at Tejas in Edina on 50th and France. This is a great area, like a small community of unique shops and restaurants. Of course, most of it is quite expensive, but Tejas is worth it! Not only is their food great tasting, but they present it in a very appetizing way. Everything was excellent, from their drinks to the guacamole (prepared tableside) to the main meals.
We were joined by Ryan's parents and his sister so we were able to try a bunch of dishes and drinks. Here's some of what we ordered:
White Bean and Black Bean Soup with Epazote and Jalepeno Cream. The contrasting soups are poured into the bowl at the same time to create the half and half look.
The Three-Tomato Bruschetta with red and yellow tomatoes, green tomatillos, kalamata tapanade and goat cheese.
Goat Cheese Enchilada served with a mango habanero salsa, fresh corn tortillas, grilled asparagus, and cashews. This really had a lot of flavors going on and was quite good.
Blue Crab Taco with jicama, red onions, yellow peppers, fresh corn salsa and a basil mint relish. Very light and flavorful.
Barbecued Pork Tamale with Apricot-Almond Chutney and Sweet Potato Shoestrings. This is only my 2nd time having a tamale and it was quite good. Too bad I was stuffed and couldn't finish it all. It came on a bed of barbecue sauce which provided a good amount of spice.
