Attention all tequila connoisseurs and Mexican food loving Munchiers, you won’t want to miss this! From the build your own margarita station to the fried ice cream churro bowls, La Loma’s NEW Tequila Dinner Series will have you salivating. Having recently moved from their historical location in the Highlands, La Loma is now centrally located directly across from the Brown Palace. To celebrate their new location, we were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to experience their new 4 course Dinner Series and Tequila Tasting. You can experience it in a few weeks too, keep reading for more details!
The dinner starts out with a build your own margarita bar, best start to a dinner ever. With add in options such as jalapenos, strawberries, mangos, basil and more, you could customize it any way you want. We decided to opt for jalapeno strawberry, we felt that spice but boy was it nice…… With a good buzz going, we were given the first course of the night, the choice between a shrimp salad or chicken tortilla soup. We happily tried both and would recommend either one!
From there they spoil you with multiple tequila tastings, their tequila flowed like water that night. Then came the important realization, we need more food, or we are in trouble. Luckily enough the next course was mini chili rellenos and chicken flautas, served with yet another cocktail – the Paloma.
What we loved most of these dishes was the authenticity and true Mexican taste. The chili rellenos had the perfect flakiness and crunch. Once dipped in their infamous green chili, there was nothing but joy for the taste buds. Up next was yet another drink, a tequila manhatten, which might seem aggressive but turned out to be our favorite drink of the night! It’s smooth and smoky flavor made it go down like candy….a dangerous thing at this point. Then came out the real treat and main course of the night, chicken, steak and shrimp fajitas. The portions were quite large for two people, but we didn’t have an issue polishing them off. The final course of the night was yet another tasting of tequila followed by what might be the best dessert we have ever eaten, a fried ice cream churro bowl. Yes…you read that right. CHURRO. BOWL. It is as good as you would imagine.
With a significant buzz and an overly full stomach, we chalked the night up to be a huge success. The food was delicious, the drinks were flowing and the restaurant was hopping, even on a Tuesday night! Great vibe and we highly recommend!
The best news is….this new Dinner Series and Tequila Tasting will be available to the public February 21 at 6pm for $85. This would be a great late Valentine’s Day present for any of you still needing ideas…. Just saying. To book a reservation or to find out more, visit www.lalomamexican.com/make-a-reservation. However, we found the site to be a little confusing on how to book this tasting, and found calling was the best – 303-433-8300.
Thank you La Loma for hosting us and for giving us a mid-week hangover, it was worth the morning headache.
