My favorite Mexican place in town!!
Ladies and gentlemen, Washingtonians, fellow bloggers and bloggerettes, lend me your ear! You ‘ve heard of “Taco Tuesday,” well now add “Tacos, Tortas, and Tequilas” to your culinary vocabulary, the restaurant where it is now Taco Tuesday every day of the week in Silver Spring! What did you say? You want something a little bit fancier than tacos? Buena Vida upstairs of Tacos, Tortas, and Tequilas (TTT) has the Mexican dining experience that lets you relax and lounge a bit for the full restaurant feel. It’s the perfect combination thought up by Ivan Icaranin, who is orginally from Serbia, but has plenty of latin cuisine talent and expertise showing the world that a talented Mexican style restauranteur can be from anywhere in the world if he knows his or her stuff.
Tacos, Tortas, and Tequilas offers a full bar (you had me at “tequila” Ivan) but it is more for the quick bite, chill and go crowd. Perfect for those catching a concert at the Fillmore or the new independent flick at AFI. For those of us from Latin America, the decoration and the tastes will transport you back home instantaneously. Make sure you try out the Mushroom tacos and the grilled cheese tacos!!! They are so tasty that you will want more.
Buena Vida let’s you relax a little more and offers a broader menu of delicious Mexican cuisine. Is Mexican cuisine anything but delicious? One whiff of the food as soon as you come through the door and you will know that you are in the right place. Their Guacamole has the flavor, the ingredients, and the feel of authenticity. Silver Spring, already an area for foodies, has two more spots to brag about, the Tacos, Tortilla, and Tequilas and Buena Vida combo that is running double coverage on your Mexican cravings tonight! (and tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that….
