Spanish Wines & Mariscos Jalisco Together At Last This Sunday
If your Sunday needs more spice and a little sauce, you might want to head over to Domaine LA, because from 3-6 p.m. the wine shop will be hosting the acclaimed Mariscos Jalisco truck for a wine-and-food pairing that sounds divine.
Inside the shop, guests will get to try a flight of wines mostly from Spain, including the Benito Santos Albarino, Bielsa Rosado, Alodio Ribeira Sacra and a Basque cidre (which is from the French side of the Basque territory, but we don't mind, now, do we?). The Mariscos Jalisco truck will be in the lot to serve guests a tasty sampler platter of a tostada, ceviche, and their to-die-for shrimp taco.
That's the tacos dorados de camaron we first got a big ol' food crush on last year at the Taste of Beverly Hills (which has morphed into The Taste this year, by the way), and here's our take on the taco:
The hard-shell shrimp taco (tacos dorados de camaron) from Mariscos Jalisco was a firm, explosive bite. Encased in the welcome crunch of a fried hard shell, the plump shrimp stuffed in the taco was the perfect canvas for fiery salsa and the mellow smoothness of avocado.
Just add wine, and...Sunday could wrap up in a spirited way.
Advance tickets to Sunday's event are $20 for both food and wine, and day-of it will be $22. You can also purchase food and wine a la carte at the event.
