Texan witches often cursed their enemies with the Tex-Mex Hex—causing them to weep ranchero sauce, sprout burritos on their arms, and turn everything they touch into refried beans. Celebrate a more benevolent form of this delectable magic with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of authentic cuisine and drinks at Algusto Mexican Restaurant.
The kitchen conductors at Algusto's direct a flavorful, award-winning menu of authentic and healthy Mexican recipes culled from Guadalajara and Mexico City. Pear-cactus pieces, called nopalitos, drape themselves across a bed of avocados, tomatoes, and cilantro vinaigrette ($7.25), and the red mole ($9.75)—a combination of chiles and a splash of Mexican chocolate—will have taste buds singing and white shirts hiding. Veggies and meat put aside their differences and come together in the Algusto roll ($11.95), a revolutionary dish of spinach and mushrooms rolled in sirloin steak, covered in green mole, and decorated with sesame-seed confetti. A lengthy list of low-carb and gluten-free options fill bread-eschewing bellies, and delectable desserts, such as the crispy tortilla sweet roll with cream-cheese filling ($4.25), allow diners the chance to sate persnickety sweet teeth. In addition to soft drinks and beer, patrons can sip on a sultry glass of sangria ($5.95), a traditional margarita ($5.95), or a prickly flight of cactus tears.
