Holiday Tacos & Tequila Parings…

There is a new restaurant in Old Town Fort Collins that is definitely worth a visit.  Uno Mas Taqueria y Cantina recently opened its doors at 120 West Olive Street to rave reviews bringing elevated street tacos, along with specialty tequilas and drinks, traditional tortas, appetizers, and classic Mexican desserts. Uno Mas Taqueria y Cantina is one of those cool little hole-in-the-wall gems that once discovered, you do not want to tell your friends about in case it gets too busy. With two other popular locations in Denver on Pearl Street and 6th Avenue, they pride themselves on serving fresh locally sourced food, an incredibly extensive tequila menu (70+ of the best artisanal small-batch tequilas and mescals using the finest blue agave, rather than overly marketed large production brands) and all meats are smoked in-house. Their menu also features delicious appetizers, tortas served on fresh telera rolls, sides, and yummy deserts. However, their tacos served on raquelitas organic white corn tortillas are what makes them famous.

Inspiration for Uno Mas came when owner and restaurateur, Patrick Mangold-White was down in Baja, Mexico and saw a young guy on the beach with a metal trashcan and a cooler. “He opened the trashcan, lit a fire, and turned the trash can lid upside down over the fire. Then he took fresh Mahi Mahi from the cooler, seasoned it with chili powder and salt, set it on the hot lid, and started cooking it with oil,” says Mangold-White. “It was so basic but a genius cooking method that everyone on the beach loved. I created Uno Mas to reflect that genius — simple and bold archival cooking at its best.”

Uno Mas Taqueria y Cantina is open daily 11:00 am to 9:00 pm (10:00 pm on Fridays/Saturdays) and happy hour is from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm Monday to Friday and 11:30 am to 5:00 pm on weekends. Check out their Taco Tuesday special every Tuesday from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm when all tacos are only $3.00 each. Learn more at unomastaqueria.com

Patrick’s Pairing Picks:

Sea of Cortez Taco – chili rubbed sea scallops & shrimp, fresh avocado, cilantro, ranchero salsa, cotija cheese. We get our seafood delivered fresh from the market and hand-prepped to ensure the finest quality. We always cook especially for your order.

Joven Mezcal – Joven mezcal is generally peppery, has a fresh agave flavor and, of course, is smokey (apply the “smokey” descriptor to all mezcal). This makes it a perfect pairing with our Sea of Cortez fish taco.
