Urban Taco Social Kick Off

Disclaimer: I was given a free drink and entree by Urban Taco. All opinions and thoughts are my own.

Last week I had the opportunity to join Samantha from Green Eggs and Sam and other fellow San Antonio bloggers for the Urban Taco Thirsty Thursday Social Kick Off.

Urban Taco was founded in 2007 with a menu inspired by Mexico City street food culture. Located in the Quarry, Urban Taco is an easy location for dates, girls night or lunch with co-workers. 

We started off by munching on thin and flavorful chips paired with margaritas.

I ordered the frozen urban rita, which is only a dollar during social hour, and Samantha sipped the red hibiscus rita. Both were delicious and refreshing.

Waiting for our food, Samantha and I munched on the warm chips and salsa trio. We chose jalapeño avocado, black bean roasted corn pico and jalapeno zucchini as our three salsas to enjoy with their warm thick and flavorful chips. All of them were amazing but my favorite was the creamy, tangy jalapeño avocado salsa.

Listening to the live patio music and chatting, it wasn't long before our food arrived. The manager suggested the any three taco combo with two sides. I choose ahi tuna, shrimp al pastor and pollo con mole with poblano green rice and mango-jicama slaw. The tacos are small but I still had to take one home for later.

Samantha ordered the de veggie quesadillas. Her quesadillas had grilled artichoke, cherry tomatoes, spinach, pico and cheese on the inside AND outside. What a fun little twist on a classic dish.
