Within the kitchen of Zandunga's trendy 11th Street location, Chef Edgar Torres integrates his experiences growing up around his parents' taqueria with his culinary training under a French chef to introduce a menu of Mexican morsels with European structure. The mojarra al mojo de ajo sears tilapia and a light garlic sauce with kisses from the sun before plating it with a scoop of huitlacoche risotto and watercress ($16). Meal makers inject enchiladas callejeras with fresh cheese and roasted corn before blanketing them in a spicy chili sauce ($12), and lobster curls up in homemade flour tortillas for baja tacos flanked by rice and black beans ($18). While today's Groupon is not valid for alcohol, Zandunga's guava margarita was named best frozen margarita in the Austin Chronicle's 2011 Critics Restaurant Poll.

The food is really really well done. The chef is creative and makes some pretty spectacular versions Mexican food.

Craig B., Yelp, 8/19/11

it is refreshing to see restaurateurs choosing a more adventurous path with authentic regional recipes and modern takes on Mexican classics.

I’m telling you to run, not walk, to Zandunga Mexican Bistro, on Austin’s near East Side, to try the amazing huitlacoche risotto.
