OK, OK, I admit it! I'm a Yankee. And not a big fan of Mexican food. But.........
I've lived in North Texas for 30 years and every once in a while I get dragged to a Mexican restaurant by friends. Last night was one of those occasions. And I loved it!
Masaryk is a "Modern Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Lounge" at 5004 East Addison Circle, Addison Texas 75001. The food was fabulous! (Except the salsa dip for chips, which was a little too hot for my naive taste buds.) I had the Salmon Masaryk, a pan seared dish smothered with hearts of palm in a buerre blanc sauce, atop pepita pesto mash, with microgreens. My friend had the Pollo Agave, a pan seared chicken breast with sauza tequila and a chanterelle cream reduction, also with the pepita pesto mash and a garlicky spinach.
Chef/Proprietor Gabriel DeLeon stopped by the table despite a full crowd in the dining area and at the bar and visited with us.
If you are in the Addison Circle area, stop by and enjoy a fabulous dining experience at Masaryk. If you're not local, check out their website: www.modmexkitchen.com.
