Texas Joe’s London Tex-Mex Fiesta

It’s great to be back in London!

Texas Joe invited me to sign books and give a Tex-Mex talk for a big Cinco de Mayo fiesta at his BBQ joint.

The Uber drive from London’s Gatwick airport to the South Bank neighborhood where we rented an Airbnb apartment took longer (a hour and 45 minutes) than the flight from Ireland to London (one hour and ten minutes).

The weather was outstanding–bright, sunny and mild. The event drew a large crowd of London Longhorns, Aggies, and a lone Baylor Bear for a fabulous lunch.

There were sighs of nostalgia all around as the margaritas, chips and salsa, nachos and flautas were passed around. The main course was a Tampiqueño Plate–steak and a cheese enchilada with beans and rice.

The Feast

The Drink: Cadillac Margarita

To Start

Nopales Quesadilla- Smoked cactus and oaxaca cheese with tomato, green onion and jalepeno

Smoked Brisket Nachos- Texas style individual nachos topped with refried beans, USDA brisket, jalepeno and cheese

The Main Attraction

Tampiqueño – Grilled skirt steak with grilled onions served with a cheese enchilada topped with chili con carne, rice and refried beans.

Tacos al Carbon – rolled soft tacos served with pico de gallo and guacamole, smoked fajita chicken.

Dessert

Milkshake “No Minors” Brandy & Kahlua kick your milkshake up a notch.

Many thanks to Texas Joe and his hardworking crew for the Party Party weekend,
