Having covered the likes of seafood and pub fare, throwing a south of the border twist into the Capon restaurant line up was a brilliant choice.
With an inside reminiscent of my grandparents kitchenette, the warm feeling that encompasses the interior of the restaurant draws you in and makes you feel right at home.
You know what else makes you feel right at home? A Chef that not only makes amazing grub, but personally comes out to say hello to every table – and even donned a sombrero while singing happy birthday to nearby diners. Chef Capon – you are legit.
At a suggestion of Capon himself, we started with a round of mango jalapeno margaritas (I love any spicy/tequila combo), gauc for the table and the queso…
…which I could sadly not eat. They use a bit of flour to thicken the cheese. I know, sorry.
Luckily, El Toro Blanco actually notes on its menu what is/isn’t gluten-free with an asterick, love it.
I was even able to eat the fried corn chips which seems mundane, but coming from someone who usually needs to eat guac with veggies, I was thrilled.
Other dishes include:
And for dessert? I didn’t want the whole table to suffer and not try the churros so they each got one and I got the rice pudding with sorbet dish (can’t recall the name)…
After throwing back a quick shot of Patron, we departed ways from El Toro Blanco, but will most definitely be back.
Lure, B&B and now El Toro Blanco – a true culinary trifecta. Congrats Capon & team.
El Toro Blanco
Pros: Always a good crowd, amazing food & gluten-free menu.
