GUADALAJARA DINNER WITH CARMEN VILLARREAL OF SAN MATIAS DISTILLERY AND PORTLAND BARMAN TOMMY KLUS

Carmen Villarreal, the only woman head of a tequila distillery in Mexico, is coming to town and we’re having a dinner in honor of her and her distillery, San Matias.  The distillery has been making quality tequila since 1886.  Their brand, Pueblo Viejo, is the tequila we use for our margaritas.

On a trip last year to Jalisco for Dia de los Muertos, Pablo, our general manager, chose his three favorite barrels of San Matias’ Gran Reserva, a delicious extra añejo of highlands agave aged in French oak for three years. It’s also one of the best values in aged tequilas. Pablo brought back samples from his three favorite barrels and we blind-tasted them with our staff and local tequila aficianados.  Everyone agreed which sample was the best.  This year, San Matias bottled our favorite as a “Mi Mero Mole Single Barrel Select,” which is currently available at both of our restaurants and can be purchased from Hyland Hills Liquor Store.

Come join us, Tuesday, November 17th, for a special dinner of dishes from Guadalajara paired with tequila and cocktails made with tequila from San Matias distillery, chosen and mixed by Tommy Klus. Tommy is a local bar legend, having worked at Bluehour and St. Jack, then headed the bar programs at Kask, Multnomah Whiskey Library, and now La Moule.  Tequila and mezcal have always been loves of his and it’s shown on his cocktail menus.

Four-course dinner will include:

  • Camarones al Tequila: Bacon-wrapped shrimp with tequila sauce.
  • Torta Ahogada with Jicama Salad: Roast pork sandwiches smothered in red chile sauce.
  • Birria de Chivo: Spiced goat stew.
  • Jericalla: Cinnamon and vanilla custard, a traditional dessert of Guadalajara.

A vegetarian/vegan option is available (Carmen is also vegan), but please, only request it if you do not eat meat.  The vegetarian option will have wild mushrooms in tequila sauce, a butter bean torta ahogada, a root vegetable birria, and the jericalla for dessert.  A vegan option will be available to replace the dessert, as well.  Price is the same.  You must request the vegan/vegetarian option when you make reservations.

When: Tuesday, November 17th, 7pm (Reservations Required)
Where: NW 5th & Couch (32 NW 5th), our Chinatown location only.
Cost: $29.50 for meal (vegetarian/vegan option available), $45 with special tequila and cocktail pairing created by Tommy Klus

Email us or call us to reserve your spot.  (Email preferred.)  Reservations are required.
