Blanco Tacos + Tequila recently opened in The Galleria and delivers delicious light and modern Mexican dishes! Owned by Arizona based, Fox Restaurant Group who brought Houston two of our favorites – North Italia and Flower Child. Right, when you enter through the large wooden doors you will want to grab a smashed watermelon margarita and take an Instagram! The interiors are inspiring in that it was as if they were designed to be the backdrop of a fun girls dinner or double date. With painted succulent pots lining the walls and scattered throughout the space along with a neon wall that reads “Te Amo Tequila”!
The menu has classic items like queso and guacamole but also unique twists on Mexican items unlike anywhere else in Houston. Street corn that somehow tastes light, vegitarian black beans and rice and loads of delicious fish and vegitarian options!
The grilled avocado taco, Hamachi & Watermelon Ceviche with cucumber, avocado, jalapeño, dried pomegranate seed, salted pistachio along with the unexpected caramelized banana split were a few of our favorites!
Pro Tip: If you’re on a date but still want to enjoy the Grilled Mexican Street Corn without worrying about checking your teeth, order it off the cob. Same great taste without the mess!
Enjoy this and many more Sunday – Thursday 11am – 10pm and Friday – Saturday 11am – 11pm and Happy Hour specials like $5 margaritas are available Monday – Friday 3-6pm.
