I’ve been wanting to dine at Masa for many months now, so I was psyched when my friend, Jacky, suggested having dinner there with a bunch of our friends last night.
I loved the simple Southwestern decor and the sophisticated, semi-romantic atmosphere of the restaurant. It felt like the type of place where you could just sit and chat for hours with a close friend or your significant other.
While we waited for our group of 12 to arrive, a few of us caught-up and sipped cocktails by the bar.
There was lots of mood lighting! 😉
To drink, I ordered a Bloody Masa, which was an 18-ingredient Bloody Mary mix with Sauza Blanco Tequila. It had a serious spicy kick to it! Absolutely amazing! 😀
Our meal started with delicious bread and homemade spreads. My favorite was the creamy maple one.
Oh, how I love bread!
Mal and I shared 2 tapas plates for dinner: Smoked Chicken Chimichangas with avocado and Roasted Pork Chorizo with fig and manchego cheese.
Both were delicious, especially the fig + manchego!
Masa totally met all of my expectations, but I was a bit bummed about their prices. I felt like the tapas (and entrees) were overpriced for what we got.
I guess I’ll just have to go back for their $5 tapas deal on Thursdays. 😉
