With every good drink comes great food! To enhance your mezcal experience, here are a few food pairing suggestions:
★ The "Aguachile de pulpo roja” is a slow cooked octopus dish with smoked tomato, avocado, piquillo pepper, habanero and lime. This dish pairs remarkably well as both the tomato and piquillo pepper have a slight smoky touch, though more sweetness than smoke. When eating this with mezcal it balances the palate perfectly as the mezcal also has the smoky and sweet flavour combination.
★ Chorizo taco – a rich pork and beef taco goes well with a smoky mezcal, and the spicy chipotle salsa works with the sweetness of the mezcal.
★ For an interesting pairing, the Seabass with sweetcorn will be the way to go. We all know how good smoked fish tastes, so having a fresh roasted fillet of fish with mezcal recreates this effect. It’s a really interesting combination as the fish becomes more delicate in flavour!
★ The churros of course! Chocolate and mezcal practically come from the same town in Mexico – Oaxaca. We also infuse our chocolate sauce with orange, and orange is the perfect citrus to be served with mezcal. Churros, mezcal, orange and chocolate, you can’t go wrong! Available at Super Loco, prices vary. See you soon amigo! ¡Salud!
