[NEW PROMO] Tacos and Tequila Night at Bengawan, Keraton at The Plaza

Bengawan at Keraton at The Plaza is proudly presents a specially curated Taco and Tequila pairing menu in celebration of Mexican Independence Day on September 16, 2014. Chef Lamberto Valdez Lara, Keraton at The Plaza’s Director of Culinary, in collaboration with Patron, the most ultra-premium Tequila brand in the world, has created a tantalizing menu, pairing tequila shots and cocktails with some of his most popular tacos. Me and my husband were invited by Keraton at The Plaza to taste some of these gourmet tacos last week, and I’d like to share it with you right now. Patron brand tequila is offered in nine different varities, and I saw there are some of them available in Bengawan, such as the Patron XO Cafe, Patron Reposado, and Patron Anejo.

Crispy corn tortilla chips as a welcome snack at Bengawan during the Mexican promo. Best eaten with three kinds of dipping sauce; Red salsa, Sour cream and Green salsa. You can also enjoy the Tortilla Chips with the Guacamole.

Guacamole

Guacamole in Bengawan is totally different from the other restaurants I’ve ever tasted. Here they made the guacamole using good, riped imported avocados from Mexico. It tastes fresh, and it still has some big chunks of avocados inside it. Best eaten with the Tortilla Chips.

Everyone can enjoy an exceptional Mexican dining experience with Gourmet Tacos and Tequila for IDR 190.000, – nett per person. You can choose any 3 tacos from six Taco categories (Fish, Shrimp, Beef, Chicken, Vegetable, and Most Popular), and choose one drink (1x Tequila shot / Cocktail / Any non-alcoholic beverage serving). Bengawan offers a wide selection of gourmet tacos served on soft corn or flour tortillas, with Mexican rice, refried pinto beans, and a refreshing green and red salsa on the side. Here is a review for some of the gourmet tacos that we have tried that night.

De Pescado Taco (Fish Taco) 

This one is a fried snapper in a tequila butter, chipotle mayo, and green cabbage, served on a flour tortilla. The fish is quite crisp, and the combination of the sauce is overwhelms the fish. We both loved it!

De Res Taco (Beef Taco) 

This one is Carne Asada served with roasted guajillo salsa. Slices of thin beef were marinated and grilled, served on a flour tortilla. Simply delicious!

De Camaron Taco (Shrimp Taco)

This one is Capeados Taco, a buttered shrimp with fresh Pico de Gallo (fresh uncooked salad made from chopped tomato, onion, etc.). To add more flavor, I add some guacamole to it.

De Pollo Taco (Chicken Taco) 

And the last one was this Chicken Tinga with chipotle, served with a big slice of avocado on top of it. The chicken meat is tender and tasty, but I also add some salsa sauce, so it becomes more flavorful. But we didn’t like the corn tortilla since it’s thicker and has a coarse texture than the flour tortilla.

Cinnamon Sugar Churros 

These Churros are so good, served with 3 kinds of dipping sauce; Cajeta (goats milk) caramel, White chocolate sauce, and Chunky mango compote. Among 3 of them, my favorite one is the Goat Milk Caramel dipping sauce. The churros are so crunchy, delicious, warm and cinnamon sugary!

Strawberry and Lychee Margarita + Patron Reposado Tequila

We also enjoyed our random conversations among other invitees over a couple of fruity margaritas. Strawberry and Lychee infused Tequila turns out to be a refreshing cocktail for those who cannot drink tequila in one shot. If you’re into doing shots, you can try the Patron Reposado Tequila, which is aged up to six months. It is smooth and quite strong alcohol.
