Food Tour New Mexico offers a great tour called the Nob Hill Nibble. Seven people, 5 locals and us, went on the tour this afternoon.
First stop was Yonni's for the appetizer of seared Ahi Tuna with caper sauce a wasabi. The restaurant is Greek and Mediterranean and even though raw fish wouldn't be my first choice the flavors were good and the guide advised a wine that paired well with it.
Cochinita de Pibil Tacos
Next stop was Zacateca's Taco and Tequila where we had.....tacos and tequila
The tacos more specifically called Cochinita de Pibil Tacos and were pulled pork with tomatillo-chipotle salsa. Of course you have to have a margarita and the recommendation was one with cucumber and agave sauce.
A pit stop was made at a vinegar and oil specialty shop to taste test and ultimately buy a garlic and parmesan oil.
Final meal stop was at Scalo for penne Bolognese which was a ragout of slow-cooked veal, pork and beef, mirepoix, tomato and wine sauce. The waiter said the recipe has been used since the opening of the restaurant 30 years ago this month.
Lastly for dessert and coffee was Limonata and a brownie that was 67% cacoa.

The tour had us all filled up so we grabbed Emma from the hotel and headed downtown. She was a champ while we did some window shopping around town and stopped for a margarita. This one was a wine margarita but surprisingly good.
