The tortilla's thinness makes it ideal for folding, sliding under closed doors, and illustrating theories that the Earth is flat and made of corn. Voyage to the edge of deliciousness with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Tequila Sunrise in Oakland Park.
Voted one of the Top 10 best Mexican restaurants in South Florida by Local 10 viewers in 2011, Tequila Sunrise concocts house specialty sauces to top its vast array of traditional Mexican fare. The menu packs plentiful soups and appetizers, such as the homemade chili made with mexican chorizo sausage ($5.95) and the mexican pizza, a large, oven-baked tortilla topped with cheese, vegetables, and your choice of meat ($9.95). Tackle a plate of enchiladas rancheras ($9.99) or savor an aquatic cornucopia by ordering the seafood crepe pacifica, a combination of shrimp, scallops, crab, and a dijon cream sauce ($17.49), which creates a culinary harmony unseen since the California Raisins dominated the airwaves. Tequila Sunrise also mixes a bevy of margaritas in regular, frozen, and flavored varieties, including the Ultimate Golden margarita, made with a brandy-based orange liqueur, or the locally lauded El Presidente, which blends Presidente brandy with triple sec.
Tequila Sunrise Mexican Grill
Bejeweled sombreros hang from Tequila Sunrise’s ceiling, their gems glinting next to strands of hanging lights. In keeping with this flashy, festive atmosphere, bartenders dole out award-winning margaritas, which are blended from freshly squeezed sour mix and served in glasses that dwarf the circumference of their customers’ heads. Though Tequila Sunrise specializes in libations, it doesn’t shirk cuisine: chefs sauté fresh seafood in Mexican spices and drizzle tender chunks of meat with homemade sauces. Their dedication to high-quality, fresh ingredients helped earn the eatery its spot as one of 2011’s best Mexican restaurants in South Florida, a poll determined by Local 10 viewers and one guacamole-obsessed Magic 8 ball.
