This article is for all you Tex-Mex addicts out there. You won’t have to worry night and day about getting your fix in Ljubljana. This particular restaurant will perfectly cater to your quirky culinary addiction. When I was living in the States, I fell in love with this cuisine. Little did I know that it’s not the same as traditional Mexican food. Apparently, it uses a narrower base of ingredients, more adapted to the tastebuds of us gringos. Nevertheless, since my foreign adventure, I seem to be on an eternal burrito-quest.
Now, let me tell you about my favorite Tex-Mex-dealer in Slovenia, Joe Peña’s. Their flavorsome dishes, in combination with the interior, always take me for a toothsome spin. So, unchain your heart, follow my lead and give in to your pseudo-Mexican-food cravings. It can happen that you’ll have to wait a little while before you get a table. However, that’s because this restaurant is popular with an extensive range of locals, coming from the various layers of our society. Just order that well-deserved classic margarita. Patiently await your turn, and picture yourself standing there next to Hemingway, discussing how he caught that legendary swordfish on the wall.
When you’re finally seated, I recommend that you order a bowl of fresh, finger-licking-good guacamole as your appetizer. The waiter will crush those pesky avocados, season them, and double-check which condiments you want to be added on the spot. All the while, you can sip on that second classic frozen margarita. Enjoy!
