Last weekend we got treated to a special experience hosted by El Barrio and el Jimador. Fetched in a classic white limousine, we entered our own private party on wheels, equipped with club-like lighting, a sound system, smoke machine and our very own personal bar stocked with beers, champagne and two bottles of el Jimador tequila, of course! After fetching some friends we cruised our way out of the city on an epic sunset ride toward our dining destination – El Barrio Tacos & Tequila Joint.
We arrived at the eclectic little venue situated at ‘Eden On The Bay’ in Bloubergstrand. After what felt like a mini-rave, we sat down to what would become an endless marathon of scrumptious Mexican tapas and an endless stream of designer drinks and shots of tequila.
The venue was packed by 7.30 pm and vibes were on the up when we started digging into a table full of scrumptious tacos varying from juicy meaty options to delicious veggie filled selections. There was no end to the salsa, nacho corn chips and their signature jalapeno poppers, filled with queso blanco and wrapped in bacon, which absolutely stole the show. They just kept on coming our way.
We were well tucked into round three of our Corona cocktails when we got a chance to sit down with the owner and find out more about his hidden Mexican gem and this amazing experience they curated.
His vision was to create a vibrant, multicultural mosaic of ‘modern Mexico‘, full of flavorful street food, handcrafted tequilas combined with the eclectic colours of Mexican street art and murals and urban decor. With a menu that focuses on dishes and drinks that bring people together like tacos, antojitos, taco bowls, postres, margaritas and of course tequila.
In the spirit of bringing people together, The team at El Barrio have created a special adventure for lovers of tacos and tequila and an opportunity for inner-city residents to escape the hum and drum of the CBD for a night out OF the town.
Well stuffed on food and drink our fiesta in Blouberg was coming to an end. After hours spent out of town, it was time to hop back into our rave-on-wheels and head back to a destination of our choice. Where we landed up is irrelevant and paled in comparison to Blouberg fiesta and our mini-rave.
