Recently our HS classmate, Lily came home from California after many, many years. We met up with her for drinks and some Mexican chow at Agave Mexican Cantina at The Fort.

The place was surprisingly full considering we arrived at 6:30 pm on a Friday night. The restaurant/bar had a good mix of locals and expats.
Nachos is one of my favorite foods ever. I couldn’t resist eating more than a couple of chips and it was so delicious. There was just the right amount of each ingredient coating the crunchy tortilla chips.

I found the baby squid too sweet with the barbecue sauce overwhelming the delicate and tender squid.

The bottomless margarita was a good deal which some of my friends took advantage of.

The steak quesadilla was the most popular variant.
We ordered this huge platter with an assortment of their most popular treats. My favorite was the beef skewers which was so, so, tender and flavorful.

My dinner was this taco salad. The grande wasn’t really that big. I had the corn, guacamole, olives and black beans removed to fit my diet. Not bad at all.

They really cook beef well at Agave. We all ate the steak and chicken without the tortilla wrapper.

Agave turned into a bar midway to our dinner. The lights went down and the music became louder. Eventually we had to move to a coffee place since we couldn’t hear each other. The food was pretty good and the atmosphere was fun.
