    Margarita's Village: Now with Two Locations

    by lmkluque Updated Mar 17, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Downtown Location

    Margarita's Village has a location in Rosarito Beach and that is the one I ate at. The waiters were very friendly, funny and effecient, the food was good and the drinks even better. The downtown restaurant is the older of the two in Tijuana and most likely very similar to the Rosarito store. In the new, Plaza Viva Tijuana--the pedestrian route from the border to downtown--restaurant Margarita's Village looks to be a bit different, bigger and more open, however, I expect that the food and service is just as good.

    Favorite Dish: What ever you like on the menu should be tasty and of course the Margaritas!

    Margarita's Village: A Second Location

    Terraced Patio Dining Overlooking Revolucion

    If your intention is to only make a short stop in Tijuana this location would be ideal. It is very near the border at Plaza Viva Tijuana and seems to be very popular.

    Just in front of the restaurant is a large "village plaza" and I imagine that at night it fills up and becomes quite festive.

    I haven't eaten at this location, but did like the Margarita's Village downtown, so this should be good too. Also, I like the terrace dining overlooking the Plaza.

    Favorite Dish: Margaritas! Of course.

    Margaritas Village: Tequila? What's that?

    HELPING WOMEN LOWER THEIR STANDARTS FOR YEARS!

    Margarita which Ursula drank in Margaritas Village surely contained Tequila.

    WHAT IS TEQUILA?
    TEQUILA is an alcoholic drink (officially 38%-55% of alcohol, usually 38%-40%) in the arid highlands of central Mexico, from fermented and distilled sap of the agave (also called a maguey), an indigenous plant (a succulent, not a cactus). Archeologists say the agave has been cultivated for at least 9,000 years.
    Tequila wine was first made by the Conquistadors, who distilled a native drink called pulque into a stronger spirit. In the 400 years following the Conquest, tequila has become an icon of Mexican nationality, pride and culture, recognized worldwide. Today, most of it is made in Jalisco state around the town of Tequila.


    MY TOP 6 THOUGHTS ON TEQUILA:

    1. There is NO worm in Mexican-bottled tequila :-))).
    The worm comes in mezcal and you have to be pretty drunk to eat the worm, am I wrong, he? :-))) Btw the worm is eatable, as I know.

    2. Tequila is NOT made from cactus. It's made from agave or maguey (pr. "mah-gay") plant. This plant is actually related to the lily and amaryllis (it has its own genus, Agave).

    3. Tequila and mezcal are NOT the same thing.

    4. Tequila is NOT only bottled Mexican brew.

    5. The best tequilas does NOT cost the most. Example: Porfidio blanco at over US$100 is not necessarily a better buy than a Sauza Hornitos available at US$10. It depends on your taste and what you expect in a tequila.

    6. NOT only the bottles are different, tequilas they contain are different as well.


    Favorite Dish: Margaritas.


    HOW MUCH IS TEQUILA?
    There's a large market of excellent tequilas available in Mexico at $20-$30 US, and a very good choice in the range from $30-$50 US. Under $20, most of the tequilas are mass produced for the local market, and usually mixto (not 100% agave). Above that price, they're aiming mostly at the snobbery of the export and premium market, often with collector bottles and recently introduced individually numbered bottles.

    Margaritas Village: Margarita? What's that?

    by matcrazy1 Updated Aug 3, 2003

    MARGARITAS  VILLAGE

    Is it quite nice female name? Yes, but not only. It's a type of alcoholic coctail (= a mixed drink). A margarita is made with tequila, an orange liquer and lime or lemon juice. Margaritas are usually served in glasses with salt round the rim. It's seems that they are the most popular coctails either in Southern California and in Tijuana (at least among visitors), am I wrong?

    Favorite Dish: Margaritas.

    My recipe:
    Mexican and key limes are the little ones. If you substitute persian limes (the big ones available in my country), you'll need only half a lime.

    Crushed Ice
    Juice of 1 Mexican or key lime (or half persian lime)
    4 shots (4oz) tequila plata
    2 shots (2oz) cointreau
    salt

    Fill a shaker with crushed ice and squeeze the lime juice into it. Wet the rim of two 4oz cocktail glasses with what's left of the lime. Dump a little salt on a dish towel and spin the moistened glass rims in it.

    Shake off the excess salt. Add the tequila and Cointreau to the shaker glass. Shake the cocktails with the ice and strain into the glasses, pouring carefully to avoid messing up the salted rims.

    This is rather strong cocktail. It should be treated like a martini. CHEERS :-)


    From my friend Paula (paulapes) from Rhode Island, USA:
    Margaritas are VERY popular all over the US!
    Haha, I didn't know. Cheers! Paula :-)

    The best choice of Margaritas in Tijuana. Unfortuantely I was going to drive to Yuma, Arizona a few hours later that day and I already drank 2 beers so I had to skip Margaritas there. But Ursula liked them a lot hehe.

    And that was inexpensive place. US$ (as always in Tijuana), Visa, Mastercard, Traveler's checks accepted.

    Mon - Fri 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.,
    Sa - Su 10 a.m. - 12 a.m.


    Favorite Dish: Margaritas.
