Before you read any further, you should be singing "bandelero, bandelero" to the beat of "bamboleo" by the Gipsy Kings in your head. It will enhance the post greatly. I promise.
Bandelero, Mike Isabella's modern Mexican restaurant in Georgetown, is a rootin' tootin' good time.
Decorated in a Day of the Dead theme, it's dark, intimate and loud. On the night we went, it was also hot as hades as the AC was out. Thankfully, the food and drinks made up for the swamp ass.
I went with my husband and two friends. We proceed to sample a wide variety of the menu. Everything we ate was fantastic. Our favorite dishes were the suckling pig tacos with apple and habanero mustard and the lobster tacos with corn, tomato and basil. Are you looking at those photos? It was just as delicious as it looks.
Another highlight was the margaritas. The El Banderlero, which was espolon blanco tequila, patron citronage, lime, blood orange and a GM float, is on tap. That could be dangerous. It was definitely yummy.
