Find: El Big Bad Margarita Bar + Kitchen (Houston, TX)
I've been living in Houston about 6 months and my eating self already has a few spots to recommend. El Big Bad is high on my list. Here's why.
But not just any tequila. I'm talking dozens of fresh, infused options you can drink straight, in a mixed beverage of your choice or in a delicious margarita with fresh citrus, agave and a sugared or salted rim. You can even blend tequila. I recommend blackberry & basil or grapefruit & hibiscus...or grapefruit with anything. It's that good.
...because ambiance & art.
There's a LOT of space up top with awesome views of people in rare form any given Friday or Saturday night below (or to be in rare form yourself).
I've not been to El Big Bad for a whole meal (including a brunch I hear is delicious), but these appetizers are excellent. My favorites are Jalisco Hot Wangs (spelled straight like that) and the nachos.
So if you're coming in town, then me 2 favors. Go to El Big Bad and take me with you!
