Taste Of El Paso is November 9th, (Thursday), in the El Paso Convention Center.

Appetizers, main courses, drinks, craft beers, wines and desserts ... from some of El Paso's finest restaurants, breweries and dessert makers ... all in one convenient spot for one price!  One of the restaurants involved this year is the Mesa Street Grill, located on the west side at 3800 N. Mesa.

The restaurant is beautiful, (I was surprised they let me in), and I was first met by the even more beautiful Michelle. She took me to the bar area where Chris brought out the entree which, he said, isn't usually offered on the restaurants' menu. Slow roasted pork belly, (the part usually used for bacon!), on a mushroom risotto bed with a banana leaf garnish. Yes, it was as good as it looks.

For more about Mesa Street Grill, visit their website. This is just one of many dishes you'll enjoy at Taste Of El Paso. Tickets are still available at Ticketmaster outlets and online.

Prices go up at the door though so, get yours now and save!
